Moses Gunn Collective


Who are the Moses Gunn Collective? Are they armed? Is it true that when God inflicted the ten plagues against Egypt, the Hebrews, who knew they had to leave quickly, were halfway through baking bread and had to take the half baked dough on the road as is? What condiments do they keep in their fridge?

We recently caught up with the Brisbane psych-rock four-piece to discuss what’s in a name, hair dye and the Brisbane River. The guys kindly gave us a private link to their latest EP ‘Morning Shakes’ before its release on the 28th of November. It’s damn good, we felt necessary to pass on to you good people.
