April 19 '97: in the 5th week of Gavin tracking "Finally Over"
Rotation at over 100 college and alternate radio stations all over the USA.
The Mo'fessionals spent a day at Rocket Lab in San Francisco the first week of
October '96 deciding arrangement of the Ten Cuts which will be on the new CD.
Thanks to Rocket Labs, the CD will be a full one hour album. It will be called "Finally
Over" (the final song cut). The Mo's especially want to extend thanks to Rocket
Labs (Ken, Don and Nicole) for their work and support on this project. And another big
Thanks to Tom Carr of the Music Annex, Menlo Park where the final two songs were
recorded. These companies were both part of the "Prize" the Mo's won in the
DiskMakers "Battle of the Bands" and they were a pleasure to work with. One of
the great things about this industry is meeting the people who make the music sound its
Sample CD's and Press Kits went out to Labels and Radio
Stations all over the USA - Time for the Mo's to get SIGNED and share their special
sounds across the USA! But after much interest no recording company picked them up - so
they are not currently performing.
Zoe Ellis with Caitlin Cornwell had a best
selling recording on the charts in '97 "Bohemian Rhapsody" under their recording
name The Braids. Their video debuted on MTV. Mike Marshall has been in Germany
recording and performing there.
Loring and Erik are were in Japan
in mid-1997 where they visited their friend Kota Kagami (who used to come
to a lot of Mo'fo gigs and did some rap with them). Kota has a best-selling rap CD out in
Japan - and if you listen carefully you'll hear the word "Mo'fessionals" in his
rap. Chris - CB - has memorized the rap in Japanese, if you speak
Japanese and come to a Mo'fo gig - please tell Chris what he's saying !
John "Wishbone" Wilson has a studio set up
where he is working on recording in Emeryville. The Mo's sounds may rise again!
