Biography

The year is 1993 and on one morning in Bordentown, NJ Jimmy Moss (bottom left) wakes up with the image of the name of a band called U.N.I. “Universal Noise Inc.” The band only lived in his dreams until 2003 while living in Sioux Falls, SD and on vacation heading out to Branson, MO, Jimmy was thrown from the vehicle in a 70mph automobile accident. While he lay face down in the ditch, awaiting life flight to take him to the hospital, he thought to himself, “What have I really done with my life?”
Dissatisfied with his review of himself, he reflected on the one thing he had always dreamed of doing, but never accomplished. He wanted to make a living on stage like his father did. (Fred Moss…Clefs of Lavender Hill [mid 60’s]) “My dad’s moment was short lived. I swore I’d pick up where he left off.”
After three months of recovering from his injuries, Jimmy set out to make his dream band a reality. With the help of friend, singer/songwriter Tony Spoonemore (upper left), Jimmy began writing lyrics and music, and U.N.I. was born. In the beginning it was Jimmy on vocals playing guitar and Tony on background vocals playing guitar. Although, drummers and bassists came and went they held on to Jimmy’s dream. September 2005 Ryan Pounds (center) joins the band through an advertisement that U.N.I. put out on the streets of Sioux Falls. Ryan brought a heaviness that can only come from a bass guitar and a heavy rock background to play it with and the music began to evolve. One month later Sean Larsen (bottom right) is brought in by Ryan and joins as the drummer. With techniques like doubles over trips and everything in between, this monster drummer takes the music to a whole new level. So, the music and the band was formed.

U.N.I. is Universal Noise!

Heavy rock served with fast and slow funk, blues, alternative and metal sounds topped off with melodic and hardcore vocals. Often times they have been compared to Godsmack, Seether and Chevelle.
With a commanding stage presence U.N.I. gives the listener a ride on the heavy rock express. It is obvious that U.N.I is in control. They command their instruments with such a powerful presence that it screams to the audience and grabs their attention. You will be captivated by their talent of combining poetry and metal. Their voices shake your soul as their instruments shake the very foundation of the building you are in. Non-stop to the isle of imagonnarocku where the rock that moves you are the waves that crash you down and lift you back up.
Jimmy Moss’ blends smooth but powerful vocals, reminiscent of Greg Allman. However, in songs like Perfect Light and No More you will find a touch of the stylings of groups like “Nikelback” with a tinge of “Audioslave”.

There's a new noise in town and it's called Universal Noise, Inc.

Lyrics

Perfect Light

Written By: Jimmy Moss

I feel like I can’t go
On running for something
As if I had a choice
Time running out on me

Head buzzing I’m tripping
I’m running for something
I’m faded so jaded
I’m running out of time

Chorus:
And I feel like I’ve gone too far too far
Back to start with my life
I know that it will come around
Back around to the start
Of my perfect light

I see the image of
You running with something
As if you had made
Time run out on me

Bowl stoking still toking
Is something still running
I’m faded still jaded
I’m running out of time

Chorus

Why must I feel like I can’t go on
Why must I be like you
I’ll just go home and get stoned

I’m running I’m running for
I’m running I’m running for something

I feel like I can’t go
On running for something
As if I had a choice
Time running out on me

You Don't Know

Written By: Jimmy Moss

I’ve been understanding for so many
I’ve been contemplating for my envy
You see me and you see anything
You see what you want
You claim to be understanding
You don’t know shit at all

Chorus:
No you don’t No you don’t No you don’t
No you don’t know anything about me
No you don’t No you don’t No you don’t
Haven’t got a clue about the mirror that’s reflecting you
No you don’t No you don’t No you don’t
No you don’t know anything about me
No you don’t No you don’t No you don’t
No you don’t have any hold on me

Constantly offending my inner child
Overtly appending a simple smile
You think you can make it better
You’re no help at all
I like to see you on the edge
Just to see you fall

Chorus

Chorus

Time to write an ending for my part as well
No more corroborating with your private hell
You see me and you see anything
You see what you want
You claim to be understanding
You don’t know shit at all

Chorus

No More

Written By: Jimmy Moss

Every day I’m blamed for my shit
Why not you as well for it
I can’t take no more I’ll not be your whore
Standing by while you beat me

Chorus:
Standing by while you beat me down beat me down
Standing by while you beat me
Standing by while you beat me down beat me down
Standing by while you beat me

Every time I try you press
It’s no wonder why I stress
I can’t take no more I’ll not be your whore
Standing by while you beat me

Chorus

Time you see I am free
Not to have to take no more

Chorus

Pushing me till I can’t see
You wonder what the hell is wrong with me
Every time I try you press
I stress you press I stress some more

Chorus
