Scott Moffatt Makes Record Without Brothers

Published: 2006-05-15
Former Moffatt member Scott Moffatt is getting ready to release his first record without his brothers to back him.

Scott was a member of the Moffatts, a country, turned pop, turned pop-rock group, since he was just a small child. During their pop and pop-rock phases the boys gained the kind of Hanson-esque screaming success any pop group could ask for.

Since then the all-brother group comprised of Scott and his triplet brothers Bob, Clint and Dave have split, musically anyway. Clint and Bob started a group called Hidell and Scott was a member of The Boston Post for a while before heading off on his own.

After moving to LA the oldest of the Moffatt brothers started work on his solo record The Allegory of the City. According to his myspace, Scott wrote, performed, mixed and produced the whole album all by himself though he did have some help from his fans for inspiration, "He launched the project late last year on his personal myspace, asking fans to send in instruments they found around the house, sound effects they recorded and household objects he could use in the recording process. Beyond an acoustic guitar, the entire record is composed from instruments those fans all over the world contributed."

Going along with the do-it-yourself aesthetic Mr. Moffatt is also distributing the album through his website and myspace. Pre-orders placed before June 19 will also get a bonus EP. The albums will be shipped in late June.

If you're looking for a taste of what the album will sound like you can have a listen to "The City's Teeth", "These Walls" and "Perilously Here" at Scott's official myspace. Here are all the tracks that will be on the disc:

"The City's Teeth"
"The Way It Rains On Your Home"
"Three Songs To Explain:
Part One: Making You Appreciate;
Part Two: Loaded Questions;
Part Three: And The Body Crawls Back To The Warm Ranch"
"What Were They Looking For?"
"These Walls"
"Perilously Here"
"Sorry Elly, I'm A Line Kook"
