"Review of video for "Shrimp & Cookies""

"Shrimp and Cookies" is a mosh of funk, rock, pop- and arty madness. Think Prince meets art avant-garde pop. - Logo Network

Texas is full of hybrids from whether it is part of the south or the threshold to the Great West. Is it part of the great American basin or does it reflect the rolling hills and mountains of its far western corner? At once a slave state, a republic and a free state all in the span of 50 years. The artists that it spawns are no less complicated. Case in point, was Sly Stone part of the funky soul of James Brown and Motown or was he more aligned with the psychedelic pop/rock of Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles? Whatever the answers are to these perplexing questions doesn't really matter. All that Mooney knew was that he had to get the hell out and get out fast! After a quasi-runaway attempt to a distant relatives home in Brooklyn Mooney started to play around the East Village with its burgeoning "anti-folk" scene. With his love of funk and English bands of the mid 80s a hybrid sound of pop/funk/rock/and Morrissey-like self esteem issue fueled songs based on the bumps and scrapes of Texas life began to emerge. In time dates at larger clubs such as The Limelight and CBGB's evolved as did a European release of an underground hit dance single "I Know A Place" which garnerd Mooney some well needed press internationally. MooneyStarr now lives between both West and East coasts and plays on both. Currently heading up a monthly music and sketch festival "kLAmedia" in LA and with the release of the video "Shrimp & Cookies" being played on MTV's LOGO network 2007 looks brilliant! Currently #8 on MTV's Logo Click List Top Ten Video Show! In 2010 "Hip Hop Girls Don't Like Me" also entered to Logo's Top Ten Video Show!
In 2010 Let's Douche For World Peace was released. New album titled Rubber Rubber will be released in 2012.
