Local songsmith, bass man and mystical-looking dude Matt Moody has been a fixture here on the Cream since ... well hell, since before I was here. Aside from his outstanding solo work and his service in bands including By Lightning!, Ole Mossy Face, D. Stiker and more, Moody is also known to us for his role at the center of longtime Southern psych-rock ensemble Hands Down Eugene. It's been some time since HDE played out, but on Friday, they'll perform as the headlining act at Moody's album release show at The Family Wash.
Mr. Moody will be releasing two albums — Your Sun and When I Get to the Fence — on CD, and I wrote a Critic's Pick on that for tomorrow's dead-tree edition of the Scene. Just keep your pants on and horses held for that. For the time being, you can see Moody's Amy Hobbs-directed video for the tune "Dog Run" above.
