Moses Gunn Collective
Moses Gunn Collective

Move over Miley Cyrus – there’s a new hot mess on the block: Moses Gunn Collective.

After establishing themselves as local favourites in the Brisbane music scene, MGC gained national and international exposure with their recent EP Morning Shakes and the singles Shalala and Mary, scoring rotation on Triple J and community stations around Australia and critical acclaim throughout the international blog community.

How did Moses Gunn Collective meet up?

We met while pretending we were a band at Splendour in the Grass in 2010.

Why do you think Brisbane is such a great melting pot for indie music?

It’s big enough to meet different people but small enough to not be over-stimulated.

Tell me a bit about Back into the Womb.

Don’t you want to just crawl back in?

What’s on your playlist at the moment?

Todd Terje’s remix collection, and that’s about it.

What are the songs that you wish you’d written?

Anything by big Todd.

What song have you written and you’ve thought, damn, I nailed it?

Everything in my private collection of lullabies.

You have a lot of fun in your live sets – what have you got planned for your show in Byron?

Costumes and pyrotechnics (budget allowing).

Moses Gun Collective play the Hotel Great Northern on Saturday – $5 at the door.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
