"More Sugar"

"The sound quality can easily compete with any professional studio."

"Cosmik Debris Webzine"

"I've got to admit, I've seen few bands with a stronger commitment to the DIY ethic. In the album notes, they brag that they spent $0 and 0 time in a 'real' studio, and gleefully point out that "microphones costing over $90 were not used at any time." Still, they managed to get excellent sound with the equipment and environment they chose."

"Stylistically, the sounds range from dream-pop balladry to balls-out rock and roll, with more than a casual nod to some jam band Americana influences. [They have] a tendency to go ahead and play anything they can play well, and they play a wide range of things well."

"Block Island Times"

"Sparse yet confident instrumentation executed masterfully. Smooth rhythm ends abruptly against sharp rock riffs then drift into outer space. You'll hear so many influences colliding that it soon becomes obvious that Moonspank isn't trying to sound like anyone but themselves. Just the right blend of art
and pop, they spank the groove as well.


"Jillian Bernhardt"

"For a rock band, cutting an album conventionally meant an expense of thousands of dollars and beyond. These days, the situation has changed.
Moonspank, a band out of White Plains, NY clings to a strong do-it-yourself ethic, and has been successfully able to produce its first CD, entitled Just Another Day, for a nominal amount. The band has demonstrated to its peers the reality of producing and recording a CD in the comfort of the home, and to the “real” studios that home recording is now a threat to be reckoned."

"For Moonspank, the do-it-yourself mentality extends to nearly every aspect of creating an album. Besides composing and performing, the band also recorded, engineered, produced and mixed the music, all on a home computer. The band also created the album’s artwork and graphic layout, which consists of photos taken by the band members. Of course, the band had to work with an outside company that actually pressed and packaged the CD’s."

"The band’s do-it-yourself ethic extends to their website,, which was designed by drummer Greg Saracino. Saracino notes that being a do-it-yourself band has forced him to develop numerous skills other than playing his instruments. Such skills include sound engineering, web and graphic design, and managing business transactions. The last point is exemplified in selling the CD’s, and getting gigs. Moonspank, acting as its own booking agent, has scored a gig at the famed Block Island Music Festival, and has successfully managed to book a Summer Tour of the Midwest and Northeast."

MOONSPANK's world is getting a whole lot bigger. So prepare to be swept away by the force of nature that is the band's latest album, You Thought the World Was Over.

There is simply no evading a sound so big, so breathtaking that it breaks down defenses and stirs the soul. Once the burning hot, planet-swallowing pop on You Thought the World Was Over sinks its teeth into you, you'll find yourself becoming one of the growing number of Moonspank converts.

MOONSPANK’s new album reflects not only the band’s youth and angst, but also its rich history. The band was formed in 2002 by Dave Kerry, Tony Pax and Greg Saracino. Kerry, fresh off the boat from Ireland at the time, was in search of The Dream and tending bar at a local watering hole in Westchester, New York, where he met Westchester denizens Saracino and Pax.

Saracino recalls, “Dave swept us off his feet with that larger than life voice of his. That brogue didn’t hurt either! Meeting him was pure fate.”

This year marks a renaissance for the band, after constant touring, they went back in the studio and recorded You Thought the World Was Over. “We’ve always drawn from our varied background and experiences while writing our songs.” Kerry says. “These songs are our best.”

And Kerry is right. The songwriting is second to none, and the production is beautifully colored with crystaline vocals, aggressive and tasteful percussion that rivals Stewart Copeland and Steve Gadd, deep bass tones that shake the room during huge emotional moments, vintage pianos and precise guitar work.

Pax says, “Fans keep telling us that the album grows taller and more spectacular with each listen. We couldn’t be happier. This is what it’s all about.”

Moonspank is supporting the release and expanding their fan base with a regular monthly gig at New York City’s famed Bitter End. “These Bitter End shows put the band under a microscope. We know that the audience is listening and actually concentrating. It’s nerve-wracking.” The trio performs their material with a crack group of backup musicians. “We’re lucky to be friends with some of the best musicians in New York City. It makes these high exposure shows easier.”

On paper and on disc, Moonspank delivers what fans had dared to expect and new listeners have sorely needed. But more than that, it spreads the news, from the respective hearts of Ireland and Westchester to anywhere that music for soul, head and heart still matters: Moonspank is here to stay.
