"Moe Green's Eye: Wasted"

In blissful sarcasm and epic riffs that draws us back to the heyday of giant grungy guitars, Moe Green’s Eye comes bursting through the noise and into center stage of the indie rock spectrum with their new single “Wasted,” out now everywhere music is sold. “Wasted” is blowing up the indie community from coast to coast, but it all started with the mammoth buzz they’ve been generating in the New York City club circuit. If you’re living on the island right now, this is probably not the first time that you’ve heard of Moe Green’s Eye, and if they keep the pace they’re setting with this latest track, it certainly won’t be the last.

There’s no debating that when it comes to finding a solid jam that digs deep and still quakes with the bass, this New York crew are definitely the ones to see. I know I’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on their progress in the years to come. - Cashbox Magazine


"Moe Green's Eye"

With a sound that is equally steeped in vintage punk rock and 1980’s new wave as much as it is the lumbering guitars of Black Sabbath, Moe Green’s Eye are making some enthralling heavy music for a new generation of rockers in their new single “Wasted,” a follow up to their Fast Radio Bursts Live EP. Despite being a relatively new group on the circuit, the New York City outfit haven’t wasted any time making a noticeable impact on critics and audiences alike with their blistering brand of alternative rock, and this latest track is only adding to their already unstoppable momentum this year.

Rock has two sides to it when you break down popular music of the last half century; the rough, abrasively raw and the overwhelmingly indulgent. Both are non-insular interpretations of the genre if you’re analyzing the music from an eclectic perspective, and there’s no doubt in my mind that Moe Green’ Eye has a lot of fun existing in the space between the two. While their supremely overdriven amplifier destruction owes a lot to classic rock bands of yesteryear, there is an unmistakably stripped down, punk rock ethos lying just beneath the surface of a song like “Wasted” that makes the track both intriguing and complex.

While I wasn’t very familiar with Moe Green’s Eye prior to listening to this newest offering, I can definitely tell that while these guys know how to go to work in the studio like professionals, it’s the road where they most likely come into their own full, unrestricted sound. Much in the way that almost everything tastes better when prepared over an open flame on a barbeque, rock music, at its finest, emits a reckless adrenaline rush that is impossible to contain within the confines of two headphones. A song like “Wasted” gives us a great idea about just how much sonic depth and energy that Moe Green’s Eye are capable of producing, but I truly feel that ultimately it was designed to lure us to one of their live performances. This is a working class, blue collar road band if I ever heard one, and it’s pretty awesome to find musicians with those kind of chops still around in 2018.

As long as they keep their collective nose to the grindstone, I think it’s safe to say that the future looks very bright for Moe Green’s Eye, especially when considering the stark lack of any real, thundering rock music released in the last couple of years. For whatever reason, countless artists, even ones we had come to expect far more from, have been giving in to the pressure and taking the easy route when it comes to crafting full-length LPs, and as a result, they’ve had to sacrifice the quality of their recordings and overall output. It’s good to hear a band that isn’t following such a pathetic and unfortunate trend, and much like their hometown of Boston, these fine musicians seem prepared to dig in their heels and go to war just to defend true, gritty rock n’ roll until the bitter end.

"Single Review: Moe Green's Eye "Wasted""

More than anything else, the intentions behind any single that a band releases is to convey a theme, a mood if you will, that is key to the creative profile that the artist wants you to know is theirs. It’s like a signature or a thumbprint. It’s a trace of evidence that will lead us closer to the true identity of the person(s) who created it. In their latest single “Wasted,” New York’s Moe Green’s Eye isn’t necessarily talking about cutting loose and copping a buzz, but instead inviting us on a reflective, contemplative journey of the band’s life and history together. Comprised of Anthony Galati, Steve Siegel, Bob Gallagher and Jeff Mackey, all four of the musicians behind MGE have a lifetime of skill that they each bring to the table, but they’re not exactly veterans in the studio, either. Having spent most of their lives away from professional music, this band is a testament to their overwhelming commitment to artistry that has transcended decades and brought them back together to give us some true blue, old school rock.

“Wasted” gets the ball rolling immediately, opening up with a furious, thumping riff that chugs along with the percussion like a million-ton freight train. We know something gargantuan is coming, and it quickly becomes evident that if we chase after the galloping instruments (which are subtly joined by a throttling bassline that recalls Van Halen’s eponymous debut album), we’re going to run face first into the wall of sound that is looming on the horizon for us. The lyrics unfold in a proto-alternative rock fashion not dissimilar to Michael Stipe’s dizzying, almost spoken croon. The delivery is still quite luxurious in both prose and production value, as is everything else you can hear in the multi-tracked recording. One thing I might have done differently if I was producing “Wasted” would have been to scoop the middle a bit more than they did on the finished product. I feel like there’s so much more dexterity to the bass that we don’t get to fully realize because of the girth of the other instruments in the recording. Perhaps we can chock it up to one of the hazards in trying to capture the raw energy of a band that is clearly meant to be tearing down the stage instead of playing in a tiny garage.

Wherever the venue may be, Moe Green’s Eye present us with a style of classic rock that is endearing to human nature and embedded in the modern American spirit. “Wasted” is hitting radio airwaves just in time for summer, and if this foursome has their way, it will easily be taking over commercial FM radio after it finishes conquering specialty rock and college radio this June. If we’re lucky, Moe Green’s Eye will give us a national tour to expand on the concept set forth in “Wasted,” and we’ll have the chance to see and hear what they can really do when they’re uncaged and set lose before a crowd.

Moe Green’s Eye Wasted Single Review

ByKaren BenardelloPublished on June 1, 2018




Moe Green's Eye
The New York City-based rock band, Moe Green’s Eye.

Band: Moe Green’s Eye; Members: Anthony Galati: Vocals; Steve Siegel: Electric Guitar; Jeff Mackey: Bass; Bob Gallagher: Drums

Single: ‘Wasted’

Reflecting on times of seeming peril in the professional world, and overcoming feelings of misused chances and opportunities that arise from those risky situations, is a major motivator for people who wish to improve their lives. That contemplation is powerfully highlighted in the gripping new single, ‘Wasted,’ from the rock band, Moe Green’s Eye. The new York City-based quartet, which is led by vocalist Anthony Galati, ponders the members’ reunion as musicians, after they were forced to separate as a band for a period of time and embark on their own work endeavors.

‘Wasted,’ which is set to debut on Little Steven’s Underground on Sirius XM next month on the Goldie’s Garage Show, has the potential to become a classic rock hit. The band masterfully incorporates guitar riffs and drum beats that call back to classic rock songs from the 1960s and ’70s, as well as seminal new wave tunes from the 1980s.

Galati enthrallingly croons about the wasted time people usually spend at work, as well as the dynamics of having good and bad bosses to work for. He powerfully notes that workers’ minds eventually begin to subconsciously accept the fact that their superiors at work decide everything for them, and they feel it’s best to just mindlessly follow and accept their decisions. But the band members eventually realize that they must make make their own decisions, no matter how difficult it would be to stand up for their beliefs.

Reflecting on professional times of seeming peril, and overcoming feelings of misused opportunities that arise from those precarious situations, is a major motivator for people who wish to improve their lives. That contemplation is powerfully highlighted in Moe Green’s Eye’s gripping new single. Galati and his bandmates ponder their reunion as musicians in ‘Wasted,’ after they were forced to separate as a band for a period of time, and embark on their own intriguing work endeavors. Their reunion on a song that offers much-needed reflection on the work landscape in modern society is a necessary one that surely won’t be soon forgotten. - Shockya.com


"Moe Green's Eye Releases "Wasted" New Single"

"Wasted by Moe Green’s Eye has a catchy guitar riff that caught my attention.

"Moe Green's Eye Isn't Wasted"

Moe Green’s Eye is a rock group out of NYC. The members are Anthony Galati on vocals, Steve Siegel on electric guitar, Jeff Mackey on bass, and Bob Gallagher on drums.

While I don’t know the entire story behind this band, the blurb I read says that each member was a talented musician once upon a time and then had to take a break from music for whatever reason. The fires within them, that fire that fuels all creatives (including musicians) stayed alive within each of them, and now they’ve come together to make some music that will make you love rock n’ roll again.

According to their Bandcamp profile, “Moe Green's Eye... play rock inspired by bands like REM, U2, The Clarks, Tom Petty and The Smithereens.” They are inspired by “classic 70's & 80's era pop rock that never goes out of style.”

Their single I am going to focus on is "Wasted.” It’s a track that has not been released yet, but you can still get a feel of their sound with a couple of tracks on Bandcamp, “Stay” and “Fixed.” The guys describe “Wasted” as “a song about the wasted time at work and the dynamics of having a good vs. a bad boss to work for.” Something everyone has pondered sometime in their life.

“Wasted” starts with a strong rock beat. It has a raw and distorted sound that puts you in the mood to rock out. Once the vocals start you see where that 70’s and 80’s influence comes in. The lyrics are definitely something that everyone can relate to, no matter what type of work you’ve ever done in your life.

“I can’t wait to waste my time, I can’t wait to lose my mind.”
The song has an easy, early 80’s groovy beat that will remind you of the music from films like Eddie and the Cruisers and St. Elmo’s Fire. It’s a song with a lot of mellow energy. It’s a song that will inspire you to make a change in the way you look at the working world, and it may make you want to look for a new job… unless you’re lucky enough to have that “good boss.”

Since I really dug this song I wanted to get a feel for some of the band’s other tunes, so let’s take a quick glance at the two tracks currently on Bandcamp.

“Stay” is a song that touches base on how friendships grow apart, no matter how close you’ve been in the past. This song keeps that same vintage sound, with more of an emphasis on the drums this time. I love the vocals on this track. The lyrics reminded me a lot of a few of my former friendships, and how I wish that things could just go back to the way they once were before I realized I didn’t really know those people at all.

“Fixed” is about relationships once you move in together, and how people sometimes think they can change someone else. According to the blurb, this song was written based on some true stories. I love that the band takes the time to write songs that everyone can relate to. They are about life. This track really emphasizes the lyrics, though the rest of the instruments are still clearly “visible” to the ears.

If you’ve been hoping for a fresh sound that takes on a vintage sound that makes you feel free again, this band has it. They’re talented, and they have a sound that makes them stand out. - Beat Magazine


"New Single "Wasted" Is the Workers Anthem Much Like Blue Collar Man"

Hometown NYC Rockers Moe Green’s Eye have released new single to their arsenal of NYC nightclub scene hits, the track “WASTED” is a gritty and realist view of modern work life, it is a workers anthem, much like “Blue Collar Man” but with a streetwise edge and gutsy, punchy lyrics over true to heart Rock & Roll rhythms. - Indie Pulse Music


"Moe Green's Eye"

With a sound that is equally steeped in vintage punk rock and 1980’s new wave as much as it is the lumbering guitars of Black Sabbath, Moe Green’s Eye are making some enthralling heavy music for a new generation of rockers in their new single “Wasted,” a follow up to their Fast Radio Bursts Live EP.

"Moe Green's Eye"

We call the story behind the creation of NYC’s latest powerhouse rock group, Moe Green’s Eye, a ‘feel-good’ story – a story about a group of guys (Anthony Galati, Steve Siegel, Bob Gallagher, Jeff Mackey) with fantastic talent that for their own reasons, had to walk away from music for a time…but thankfully, that fire remained, and this foursome has come together later in life to make some kick-Ass tunes that harken back to a better time in rock. The sound these guys are re-building borrows from 60s and 70s classic rock, 80s new wave, and even some rock sensibilities and NYC is on notice. Based on their new record alone, Moe Green’s Eye has been earning entrance to some of the best rock venues in the city. That debut EP is titled Fast Radio Bursts. - PensEyeView.com


"Moe Green's Eye Fast Radio Bursts Live EP"

There’s something about the Indie rock scene that brings music back to where it belongs. There’s so much musical airbrushing, auto-tuning, and sonic plastic surgery in music today “fake” doesn’t begin to describe whatever the hell it is the next know-(nothing)-at-all is trying to sell the masses. That’s why when you find a band like Moe Green’s Eye, from New York, give a little thanks and a nod that honest, organically melodic and unpretentious music still exists and realize it has a voice that needs to be heard.

With a smithering of The Smithereens, a drop or two of The Lemonheads and the street smarts of Tom Petty, Mo Green’s Eye has a new EP out, Fast Radio Bursts Live, that is a four-song teaser into who they are and will make you ask when the full-length is going to come out. Just four songs … but they are all strong.

Saving the best for first, “Fixed” is a timeless Rock song. It sounds like a radio hit from the ’80s, like when you could turn shit on and The Romantics would just be singing at you. Singer Anthony Galati has a mournful, throaty and sincere style. This is the kind of song that could have landed on The Singles Soundtrack. The second time he sings, “What if I came into your room … what if I locked the doors and made my own? Would you still feel the same? I’ve given you all, but not your name, no not your name …” you’ll be singing along. It’s that catchy. And that worthy.

Moe Green’s Eye is that band you can play for your friends and know that even if they haven’t heard the songs before, they’ll feel like they have. Their sound is reminiscent, while at the same time, it’s new. Give them a whirl and if they have more songs like “Fixed” in their arsenal coming up, you’ll be hearing from them sooner rather than later either way. - hardrockhaven.net


"Moe Green's Eye Fast Radio Bursts Live EP"

What we have here are four talented and well-traveled musicians who’ve been around long enough to understand that they’ve created something special. Their four-track debut, Fast Radio Bursts (Live EP), is light-hearted, refreshing, and well produced. Creating a sound that is rich and full, in real time, with very little instrumentation is a testament to each of their respective skills. And all of this in just a few short months together. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to hearing more from them soon. - The Ark of Music


"Moe Green's Eye Fast Radio Bursts Live EP: Groovy"

A local trio composed of three veteran players, Moe Green’s Eye have recently begun to make a name for themselves in the NYC live scene over the past few months, leading up to the release of their four-song live debut EP Fast Radio Bursts. Their reputation as a live band has drawn them to many iconic local venues throughout the New York and New Jersey area, which in turn is a feat of its own given the competitive market of the area. This live reputation is something they live up to. Being that the debut EP was recorded live in session, you can expect to get the same experience listening at home that you would as if you were packed into Arlene’s Grocery on a Saturday night.
The first track is appropriately titled “Fixed”, given that your ears will be fixed to the rhythm section the whole time. Immediately after the introduction of over modulated lead guitar reminiscent of The Cure, you begin to notice how in-touch Moe’s rhythm section is, with bass licks clicking perfectly in time with drummer Bob Gallagher. Though the vocal approach is very in your face, you can’t help but groove with the rhythm section, especially during the slow mid section breakdown that screams Geoff Tate era Queensryche.
The EP then flows into “Stay” which speaks for itself because the repeat button seems like a common place for this track. Although we’re again greeted with modulated guitar and a Bryan Adams feel, the song is catchy as hell! It has easy potential as a single, with a fierce vocal attack by Anthony Galati and that beautiful rhythm section again. This combination of sweet sounds collectively produced what is by far the strongest track on the EP.
Leading into “It’s Over Now,” you’re greeted with a tight intro that is maintained by all three members into the verse and beyond. There is some great heavy playing by the trio that almost greets the listener into thinking there might be some 80’s prog influence, something along the lines of Asia perhaps. Again we see a trend that greets the entirety of the EP – that 1980s driven guitar saturated with modulation and chorus. At this point, you want to hear some new sounds coming from the lead guitar. There seems to be a bit more effort put into the vocals here with the powerful “Have you ever felt like you were wasting your time?” ringing out similar to Bob Dylan’s iconic “How does it feel?” from “Like a Rolling Stone.” Overall a well-done track, showcasing the musicianship of the trio.
The EP closes with a song entitled “What About Time”, and frankly, what about it? The track failed to live up to the previous pieces of the debut not because it wasn’t well thought out or well rehearsed, but because it simply lacked character. Maybe the song has more potential to click in a live setting, half way through the set to keep it alive, but on a record that should have ended with a band, it instead fizzled out.
Hearing the band’s debut EP gives one hope for the potential revival of a nostalgic genre. The band beautifully executes what can be heard as a blend of new wave post-punk with touches of Queensryche and mid 80s prog tossed about. The record is highly recommended for anyone stuck inside, who wants to break out and into a local show.

"CD Review: Moe Green's Eye "Fast Radio Bursts LIve""

CD Review: Moe Green’s Eye “Fast Radio Bursts Live”
Posted: July 20, 2017 in Music
Tags: rock, modern rock, Alternative Rock, rock and roll, music, Moe Green’s Eye

Moe Green’s Eye is a straight-out Rock and Roll band from New York City that is comprised of front man Anthony Galati, guitarist and chief songwriter Steve Siegel, bassist Jeff Mackey and drummer Bob Gallagher. The band used a reference to a character from The Godfather movie series and an unfortunate situation that happened to that character in the series as the name of their band. That seems to prove that the band has a strange sense of humor to go along with their ability to play Rock and Roll.
The band of Moe Green’s Eye is currently creating music consists of musical influences such as New Wave music, as well as a lot of Classic Rock. They include bands like R.E.M, The Smithereens, as well as Tom Petty as major influences on their style. The band just did something that many bands won’t try these days. They recorded their four-song live in the studio. With this recording style, they captured the pure feel of their sound. The four-song release that was just put out is called Fast Radio Bursts Live EP.
Fast Radio Bursts Live from Moe Green’s Eye begins with the track “Fixed,” the first single off of the release. With a sound that has just a little bit of a New Wave influence from the British band Modern English, and more specifically, their song “Melt with You,” “Fixed” definitely has a very clear New Wave influence to the music. “Fixed” features a driving feel to the music and a very strong delivery in the vocals of the track. As the first track of the album, “Fixed” is a strong lead-off track.
Fast Radio Bursts Live continues with the track “Stay”. Like the previous track, the band of Moe Green’s Eye keeps the music in an eighties’ frame of mind. However, with this track, the band also seems to include a little influence from the early Alternative bands. “Stay” keeps the energy level of the music up with a driving beat to the music. Like “Fixed” before it, “Stay” has the type of style that would be welcome on the radio. “Stay,” however, is a lot closer to straight-out Rock and Roll and could have easily been played on modern Rock stations back in the eighties. The Fast Radio Bursts Live EP continues with the track “It’s Over Now”. With this track, Moe Green’s Eye
Takes their music into a slightly different direction than with the first two tracks. While the tracks that started the release were more in the realm of New Wave/Rock and Roll from the eighties, “It’s Over Now” seems to bring to mind the stylings of the J. Geils Band as the track contains that band’s style of Rock and Roll to it. That specific feel keeps the band’s style in the era of the eighties but also shows that Moe Green’s Eye seems to wear their influences on their sleeves.
New York City-based Moe Green’s Eye brings their Fast Radio Bursts Live EP to a close with the track “What about Time”. This is probably the most unique of the tracks on the release as the three musicians of guitarist Steve Siegel, bassist Jeff Mackey and drummer Bob Gallagher combine their talents in the track to create a style that recalls Progressive Rock bands, most specifically, Rush. “What About Time” is a song that contains a Commercial Rock sound and a Prog-Rock sound at the same time. The combination of the two musical styles together makes for a song that has plenty of depth to it and would be a welcome addition to any Modern Rock radio formats.
Moe Green’s Eye’s new EP called Fast Radio Bursts Live shows off the talents of the three musicians and the lead singer who come together to create a band that uses slightly older musical influences to help make a sound that sounds generally timeless. The four tracks on the band’s EP come together to create a solid release. And the fact that the band had put together the release with songs created live in the studio shows even more talent from this talented group of musicians.

Off of their Fast Radio Bursts Live EP, the song “Fixed” is a great way to introduce yourself to their stellar sound.
 


The song begins with the entrance of a distorted electric guitar which then leads to the entrance of bass and drums. With the entrance of bass and drums, the song enters an
entrancing groove building up to the start of the first verse. After the intro, the vocals enter singing, “Sowed the seeds so long ago/Played the games that made you less to know,” displaying a clean, unfiltered tone. Although the band has only been together for a short while, they are a very polished and tight group with a highly professional sound and strong mix. As the verse slides seamlessly into the hook, the addictive melodies are bolstered by backing harmonies.
 
Using metaphorical lyrics, “Fixed” is a song talks about a girl wanting to take a relationship to the next level by moving in together, but finds out that it won’t turn out the way she plans. In the hook they sing, “What if I came into your room /What if I locked the doors to make my own /Would you still feel the same /I've given you all, but not your name, no not your name,” commenting on the reality of the situation.  The everyday lyrics are easy to relate to and universal. 
 
With memorable melodies accompanied by a tight group of music vets, Moe Green’s Eye delivers a lasting musical impression and experience. “Fixed” is just one of their catchy singles that is sure to get you hooked on their sound. Their music is available for purchase via Bandcamp. For more information on the band visit their Facebook page. - Indie Spoonful


"Moe Green's Eye Fast Radio Bursts Live EP"

Based in New York City, the band Moe Green’s Eye is out with a new live EP called “Fast Radio Bursts”. The first thing you probably notice is that the band has a very distinctive name. It’s a reference to the character Moe Greene in The Godfather. It specifically relates to the character’s gruesome, but iconic, end. It’s even got it’s own slang. If you hear something about a “Moe Greene special,” shield your eyes and run for cover.
This EP is live, but it’s very clean and the sound quality is great. My initial concerns and annoyance at most live albums faded almost immediately. The lead singer isn’t all that special, but his vocals are nice enough and match with the music seamlessly. I’m a big fan of the drums, they carry the most heart in this band, from what I can tell. They’re present and clear in each song, and I found myself focusing on them the most. The guitarist is very talented, as well.
“Fixed” starts off with a great sound, but then it doesn’t progress much. The song is over five minutes, but the lack of nuance in the melody leaves me wanting it to just end already. Other songs aren’t quite as long, but the lack of variation left me wondering if I’d just been listening to one long tune, instead of four different ones. The lyrics in “Fixed” are especially solid, so pay attention to them.

“Stay” is a little more upbeat and you can find yourself swaying to the melody. I especially love the guitar in this song. It’s pretty straightforward, about changing and a questionable relationship- whether or not you want the subject to stay with the singer is up to you.
“It’s Over Now” has my favorite opening, and the riff is present throughout most of the song, which is it’s best quality. The song gives you the image of a long-lasting battle against something, only to finally get the hell out of that. It wasn’t pretty, but you’re still here. Somehow. You can imagine the exhaustion, the cautious optimism- it’s over, you’re free. If that’s not something worth celebrating, I don’t know what is.
“What About Time” is where the guitarist really got to show his skill. While the rest of the song doesn’t really stick out to me, the guitar sticks with me. If I’m being honest, I don’t much like the lyrics or the general melody, outside of some really great riffs here and there. With all that said, I don’t think I’d mind hearing it somewhere at all. It’s just not all that special.
In the end, Moe Green’s Eye gave us a solid, if a bit too safe, EP and it’s worth a listen or two. It’s definitely one you can listen to when trying to relax and wander around in your own little world. It’s not distracting, but it is mellow enough that I couldn’t suggest adding it to a focus playlist. Listeners who enjoy soft rock with very obvious influences by REM, I would suggest it!

"Moe Green's Eye"

"Fast Radio Bursts", is one EP that will have you listening in more than once, because of the impact the music has on you as a whole. It provides so much for you that it is hard not to miss it, but be pleased by it, that is what this music does for you" - nataliezworld.com


"Moe Green's Eye Fast Radio Bursts Live"

Moe Green’s Eye begin their Fast Radio Burst Live EP with Fixed, a powerful pop/rock track that touches upon a wide swath of influences. During this first salvo, there are hints of Fuel, Modern English, and just a bit of the jam-band scene. The instrumentation during Fixed is top-notch, with each guitar line, bass arrangement, and spot-on drum adding to the full-sounding composition. The dynamic between each of these elements stands up to repeat plays, with a certain complexity that rewards listeners for continuing to focus in even five or ten plays after their initial introduction. This sort of cohesion is continued with Stay; the unique sound of the vocals does a tremendous job in distinguishing Moe Green’s Eye from the rest of the bands currently performing. The supersonic chorus during Stay represents a highwater line for the band on this release, as does the stop-start sound of the guitars/drums that denotes a bit of a change at the minute mark.
Its Over Now keeps things fun and fresh. There is  slower, more intricate tempo taken by Moe Green’s Eye that allows both t he instrumentation and the vocals to shine. Particular kudos have to be given to the guitars here, as they add considerably to the repertoire of the band.
What About Time is the final effort on this extended play, giving the guitars and drums ample opportunity at the beginning to shine. The track puts a bow on this release, with some of the most fun arrangements we’ve heard from Moe Green’s Eye. The Fast Radio Burst Live EP is a rare experience in that few bands are able to create such a cogent sound in a smaller amount of tracks.

"Moe Green's Eye Brings the Live Sound to Debut EP"

There is certain music out there that will never go out of style. Bringing back that classic rock sound will always grab your ear and make you stop and pay attention for a minute. Our friends from Moe Green’s Eye have done just that and have begun to catch a lot of interested ears.
The New York City based four-piece has only been performing together for a handful of months but the veteran musicians have formed a musical fusion quickly. Steve Siegel is the chief songwriter and guitarist for Moe Green’s Eye. A quick search for the best live musicians of the NYC scene turned up front man Anthony Galati, bassist Jeff Mackey, and drummer Bob Gallagher. Once together they picked up steam quickly and wasted no time moving forward. Moe Green’s Eye has quickly become a staple of the local scene impressing bookers and crowds from Arlene’s Grocery on the Lower East Side to Groove On The Grove in Jersey City.
Their signature sound is heavily influenced by the classic rock and new wave bands of the 70’s and 80’s while adding modern elements to make the songs accessible to all listeners. This style is now ready for everyone with the release of their debut EP Fast Radio Bursts. The 4 track record used the old school, live recording approach to put out a product that gives the feel of being there.
The opener “Fixed” sets the tone immediately with its jangling guitar tone bringing us back to a simpler time. The vocals of Anthony Galati stand out with their strong yet sweet delivery. This is music to sit back and absorb. On “Stay” the energy kicks up a little bit with a bouncing bassline leading the way. The harmonized chorus invites us all to sing along and become a part of Moe Green’s Eye. If you can listen and NOT sing along, you have no soul. The video brings us memories of some of the great venues in the NYC scene that are no more.
The EP closes with “What About Time”. The live listening experience continues as the instruments each take their moment in the sun coming together for music that we all can enjoy.
Keep up with Moe Green’s Eye as they expand from the Greater NYC area and into the ears of more live music lovers soon.

"Moe Green's Eye Asks: Who'll Take Me Home"

NYC rock outfit Moe Green’s Eye recently dropped a new single, called “Who’ll Take Me Home,” from their forthcoming EP, After The Baptism.

“Who’ll Take Me Home” follows the first single, “Wasted,” which made waves on Sirius XM 21’s Underground Garage, hosted by Genya Ravan. The new single an anthology about all the women who were the best looking, most popular girls in high school, you know the girls everyone worshiped. But in many cases, because of swaggering narcissism went on to be little more than sad, gaudy lushes at the local bar.

When asked about the darker side of the song, Moe Green’s Eye says, “Life is too airbrushed everywhere you look and you need to see the darker side of life to be honest with yourself, try to change your circumstances and appreciate what you truly have.”
Made up of Anthony Galati (vocals), Steve Siegel (guitar), Jeff Mackey (bass), and Bob Gallagher on drums, the four piece is introducing a fifth member to the line-up, Frank Bove (guitar). The band’s sound blends pop rock from the ‘70s and ‘80s into polished music full of good old rock and roll oomph.

The band’s name – Moe Green’s Eye – refers to the fictional character in The Godfather (1972), wherein Moe Green is executed by means of being shot through the eye, aka, the “Moe Green Special.”

“Who’ll Take Me Home” opens on slightly grungy guitars atop a buff groove composed of a throbbing bass line and crisp percussion. On the chorus the guitars take on a shimmering energy, infusing the tune with a dark gleam. A scorching, dirty guitar solo precedes a soft breakdown riding a crisp side stick and creamy guitar riffs.

Galati’s rich tenor, reminiscent of Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish, gives the lyrics a velvety flow, as well as a distinctive inflection that’s easy to listen to.

“Who’ll Take Me Home” exudes a muscular rolling texture, along with an infectious rhythm and Galati’s dulcet tones. - Tattoo.com


"Who'll Take Me Home Single Review"

Band: Moe Green’s Eye; Anthony Galati: vocalist; Steve Siegel: guitarist and primary songwriter; Jeff Mackey: bass; and Bob Gallaghe: drums

Single: ‘Who’ll Take Me Home’

Reflecting on times of seeming peril in their personal relationships can be a painful experience for anyone. But that process is even more harrowing for women who are used to receiving endless attention, but are now struggling to contend with life passing them by without anywhere near as much admiration. The emotional process of overcoming forlorn feelings of missing connections and opportunities that used to arisen from their once attractive looks is powerfully highlighted in the gripping new single, ‘Who’ll Take Me Home,’ from the rock band, Moe Green’s Eye.

The New York City-based quartet, soon to be quintet, which is led by vocalist Anthony Galati, explores the drive the formerly vain and arrogant women have to enhance their social position in their latest song. It’s story is inspired by true events that people the musicians used to know were experiencing as their lives drastically changed throughout adulthood. The track once again proves the group’s innovative and relatable storytelling, which is often crafted by its primary songwriter and guitarist, Steve Siegel, following the release of their first single, ‘Wasted,’ which was unveiled last spring.

‘Who’ll Take Me Home’ begins with the band’s signature classical rock drum beats and guitar riffs, which continue to support Galati’s ’90s-inspired rock vocals throughout the tune. The singer passionately croons about how the women who can’t believe everyone has left them feel as though their futures are tied to their past, and they’ll never be able to reclaim their former glory. They assert that they no longer want to be alone, and hopelessly ask the title question of who will act as their guide now. ‘Who’ll Take Me Home’ is an emotional ballad that passionately explore what happens when people wallow in self-pity and pain, and their need to find a way to improve their feelings of self worth.

While musicians often experience a wide range of diverse and unique emotions, the underlying personal pain and joy that motivates them in their creative process usually connects them to their audience in a stunningly relatable way. Moe Green’s Eye effortlessly did that again with the release of ‘Who’ll Take Me Home,’ which looks at a gritty and unpleasant view of life.

The musicians warn their listeners throughout the single that they need to see the darker side of life, if they want be truly honest with themselves, and try to change their circumstances. While telling a story, ‘Who’ll Take Me Hom’ is also a meaningful cautionary tale to the group’s listeners to not succumb to the sins of vanity and arrogance, because it can lead to consequences that negatively impact future happiness.

"Single Review: Who'll Take Me Home"

It’s been over a year and a half since the indie New York music scene favorite foursome known as, Moe Green’s Eye (a Godfather reference for you youngsters), echoed across our radar. Back in the summer of 2017 we called their live debut EP, Fast Radio Bursts, “…light-hearted, refreshing, and well produced. Creating a sound that is rich and full, in real time…”

Now, the decades-long friendships between members Steve Siegel (guitar, songwriting), Anthony Galati (lead vocals), Jeff Mackey (bass), and Bob Gallagher (drums) has resulted in their strong sophomore effort, the fully-studio produced, After The Baptism (another Godfather reference, kids), for which the lead-off single, Who’ll Take Me Home, has caught our attention.

With good old-fashioned drums, electric axes, and lyrics of nostalgic reflection, it’s quickly evident that Siegel and company have their intentions set on creating a more fundamentally rock’n’roll sound, specifically reminiscent of the late 80’s & early 90’s.

In fact, after just a few opening chords of Who’ll Take Me Home’s melody, I was thinking of Black Crows and Skid Row. No, I’m not kidding. For all you old hair-banders out there, give it a listen, you’ll hear it too.

A tale of the sadness that ensues upon realizing life has blown past and little has changed, the fellas create a likable relatability which turns a dark theme into a connecting comfort. It’s good stuff.

WHOSE LOVECHILD…?
A refined & mature iteration of early-era Black Crows meets Skid Row.

"Moe Green's Eye Releases New Single: Who'll Take Me Home"

Moe Green’s Eye plays with heart and soul on the powerful “Who’ll Take Me Home”. Offering a poignant look at the downside of social media the glamour alongside the fading away, it all has a tremendous power to it. Lyricism focuses upon the loss of youth, of how youth is so fleeting, yet it has become a true commodity. While all certainly enjoy a degree of love from their earlier halcyon days, a select few bank upon it and milk it for every single moment they can. Upon the loss of that youth (because nobody keeps it forever) there is simply a gnawing sensation that comes from the stark realization that things can never be that way again.









With just the right kick from the drums the piece begins in an incredible fashion. Everything about it works, from the twang of the guitar to the lived-in quality of the arrangement. Featuring the sound of a true classic the entire piece unfurls at its own pace. Outright refusing to be rushed the whole of the song dwells over the small details those that come to define a life. Full of an intense passion Moe Green’s Eye offers a glimpse at those who burst forth in a tremendous blaze before they burn out, wondering where all of that time went and thinking what they could have done differently.

On “Who’ll Take Me Home” Moe Green’s Eye offers a cautionary tale one that displays their uncanny storytelling ability.
