The Mooseheart Faith Stellar Groove Band, sometimes known as Mooseheart Faith, is (was?) a Los Angeles based rock band blending 1960s folk rock and psychedelia, 1970s space rock and progressive rock and a variety of influences from world music and jazz. The core of the band is autoharp player and sometime bassist Todd Homer, formerly of the punk band, The Angry Samoans and guitarist Larry Robinson, formerly of 1970s teen pop/soul group Apollo, along with a variety of other individuals. This is their 88 debut release, issued on DeMilo recs (LP, DM-1). Rock n roll psychedelia from their weird and wonderfull cosmos with melodies that will linger in your mind. They released 4 more LPs/CDs and a few 7" (two with Crawlspace), equal or better than 'Golden Light'. They were active untill late 90s. Today on their homepage there's only an announcement that "their 1999 tour was cancelled". All their albums -except this- are available from the September Gurls label.

"....spacey folk pop that will crawl right outta your backpack and drill its way to the center of the earth. And how many records can do that ? (Byron Coley, Spin Magazine '89 - reviewing Mooseheart Faith's 1st LP)
P.S. In case you're wondering about the name, Edwin Mooseheart was exiled from a NY chapter of the Odd-Fellowship in 1865 on charges of child molestation. But Mooseheart denied it all, claiming that the real reason for his exile was his talking on the subject of UFOs visiting Earth.
