"Moxy Fruvous", the best of Canadean demi-Rock 90's 60's folk pop that missed their calling by about 30 years. Still, that doesn't exclude Moxy Fruvous from being one of the best folk rock bands out there. The Fruvs have something for everyone, from witty political satire to social commentary, to beautiful vocal solos and a capella songs, to eye-wattering lyrics, all of which combine to give you the most talented musicians in the genre. Their best album by far is "Bargainville", their first full CD. It delivers a perfect blend of comedy with love ballads and some good old liberal passion, all backed by the most stunning vocal harmonies of all their CD's, with the possible exception of their live compilation. The Fruvs are called so only by a couple their most endeering fans.
I just got "Live Noise" by the Fruvs and the a capella cover of "I've Just Gotta Get A Message To You" almost made me cry it was so unbelievable.
a canadian band much like BNL only they have more than one lead singer.
Moxy Fruvous is friggin awesome
Actually, the name Moxy Fruvous comes from the names of the two winning pigs at the hog-calling contest at which the four members first met, Moxy and Fruvous.
1)Heeere Moxy. C'mon boy, you can do it!
2)Just a little farther Fruvous! If you win me first prize I'll think about not turning you into bacon.
From the FAQ:
What does "Moxy Fruvous" mean? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Anything you
want it to. "What is the sound of one hand clapping"? It's a couple
of nonsense words, two great tastes that taste great together, a happy
coincidence, a fun sound, and to fans' everlasting delight, some
gibberish that lends itself imminently to wordplay. If you ask Fruvous
what their name means, you're likely to get a strange look (or several)
or a cryptic reply.
