Moxy Fruvous

First spotted by a CBC radio executive while busking in Toronto, the four members of Moxy Fruvous used their theatrical experience to set them apart. Their street-side set included rap, folk, impromptu theatrics, comedy, and political satire. Mike Ford, Murray Foster, David Matheson sing and play guitar and bass, while Jian Ghomeshi sings and plays drums. After a cassette reached number one on Canadian indie charts, the band was signed by Atlantic and released the wildly eclectic Bargainville in early 1994. Wood appeared a year later after a lengthy break from touring, but the highly personal album was not released in the United States and caused the band to doubt the efforts from their label. The next year's B Album (a compilation of B-sides) was also not released in the US, so Moxy Fruvous stepped back into the studio to put together You Will Go to the Moon in 1997. In 1998, the American label Velvel Records picked up the band and released the previous two unreleased records as well as 1998's Live Noise, followed a year later by the mature and gentle Thornhill. Live Noise was a massive success due to the strength of Moxy Fruvous' powerful live shows, and the band gained a rabid following a la Phish as their tours became extremely successful. Carrying this into the next century, 2000's quirky The C Album was a return to their more bizarre early '90s material. ~ John Bush, Rovi

I realize this is a year late... but The Tents are Coming is on C, their last album.
Was introduced through a friend and King Of Spain. Wish I'd known about them when they were still together!

Does the song The Tents are coming show up on any CDs?

Every time I hear the live version of 'Drinking Song' I try to see if I can pick out my voice in the background. I was at the taping and this was one of the best concert experience of my life!!
This band was amazingly clever and talented :)))))))) Go Canada

Becca: It's only on the indie tape, which isn't widely available.
Becca: I don't know that Green Eggs and Ham has ever been released on a Fruvous album. It's not on The C Album, Live Noise, Thornhill, YWGTTM, or Wood.
looking for their green eggs and ham song....whic h album

Been a Fruhead since Bargainville , been to enough concerts that I lost count, I miss them so much.

Seeing them live is one of the best memories I have. Especially seeing them in Mpls, Madison, and then Chicago 3 nights in a row in 1998. Please come back, Fruvous!

What a fun sound this band has!! Thanks, Pandora, for another great new musical experience!
One of the good things about growing up across the border from Canada was hearing this band and Barenaked Ladies as they were just starting out. Awesome live show. This is a band that sounds better (and is funnier) in person. Highly recommend Live Noise.
Anyone else notice that one of the backup singers sounds like WEird Al? Before Pandora I had never heard of these guys. Thank you for introducing me Pandora!

every time i hear "kick in the a**" it makes me happy! every one who works retail will identify with this sentiment!!
This band is bliss on a stick!
I fell in love with Moxy Fruvous when my mom brought a tape from one of her students home. I must have been in Elementary School. On one side of the tape, Bargainville , was written "Sad Side" and on the other "Slightly less sad side." It makes me wonder how this irreverent and sad band has effected my life in general. My favorite band.

This is an amazing band. Too bad there isn't more.
