The Omega Moo 3-track EP is a pure TNT bomb of rock n’ roll and punk power riffs, aggressive vocals, sheer speed and tight rhythms. All wrapped up in abundant intellectual, chaotic, punk-ish and dark nihilistic rock overtones.
From the second you press play on their 3-track Ep, the band let’s rip with “Wreck This Town,” and show no intention of letting up on the intensity, throughout. The trio of tracks, which include “Moovolution,” and “Kung Fu” plow through the listener in barely more than 8 minutes total!

Overall, the band’s guitar and keyboard attack is breathtakingly ferocious, with Adam Attax’s electric six-string and Ian Meek’s keys, finding the perfect, albeit unique sound mix for this genre. Ryan VanderVegt on bass holds down some well-crafted bombastic lines, while the drumming is nothing short of rock solid, due to drummer Jack Love and his astounding chops. Nothing sounds overdone, with fills in all the right places and breakneck tempos abounding.

The Omega Moo make just utterly great, hard-edged punk rocker music, with a slight dash of melody that anyone could love. It’s a shame that radio has long since abandoned this genre of kick-ass music.

There is no doubt however, that pop-chart status are not what these guys are striving for. Just listen to the lyrics and you’ll realize that there’s more going on in their heads than getting laid and making money.

Raucous punk rock bands like this are hard to come by nowadays. This is what your Blink 182s, your Sum 41s, your New Found Glories or your Green Days would have sounded like if they never got screwed up by mainstream radio temptation.

I highly recommend them.

"...the Omega Moo play a similar brand of sloppy three-chord pop punk, but this Seattle quartet blends enough surf and rockabilly influences in there to make it sound fresh and not just fun."

Bio

Omega Moo is a heavily punk influenced rock band with a unique addition; the keyboard.

Adam and Ian have known each other since their respective high school bands. Adam wailed on his guitar bringing the local punk scene down around his knees, while Ian spent his time skanking and tickling the ivory’s during the late 90's ska revival. Adam spent some time in San Diego for college and later joined the infamous San Diego punk band The Attacks (zen whisper records), who bombarded the west coast with their drunken political street punk. After The Attacks, Adam moved to the PNW to start a band based on his own songwriting and story... While the pair reveled in many of the same pleasures it wasn’t until one day when the stars aligned and they ran out of PBR at the same time that the two would meld into the musical giant that is known today as Omega Moo.

Jack and Ryan began layin down the tight rhythms together early in the new millennium. After working with a few projects that lacked the rock awesomness they desired the duo set out into the deep trenches of the Seattle music scene to find the ever elusive melody that would give meaning to their explosive groove.

The four would meet on a rainy Seattle night where the seductive allure of the Omega Moo's sweet riffs, crunchy guitar and swirling keyboards entranced the rhythmic monsters and the rest... as they say is history.

With their lineup complete the 4 Moo's set out into the Seattle music scene with the singular goal of melting faces. The band now plays shows around Washington and is on regular rotation at many of the Seattle area's greatest Venues such as: The Funhouse, Tony V's Garage, The High Dive, Chop Suey, The Blue Moon, The Tiger Lounge and many more. The group has even been sighted recently in Portland, Eugene, Sacramento, Las Vegas and San Diego.
