IAN MOORE FULL BAND
Ian Moore is back at The Dip! Mark your calendars, you do not want to miss this show!
Ian is a guitarist and singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas. He studied violin as a child but later switched to guitar. His music contains elements of folk, rock and roll, world music and blues. After playing guitar in Joe Ely’s touring band and appearing on one studio album, he spent time in Austin with his own groups, first Ian Moore and Moment’s Notice, then The Ian Moore Band. While attending The University of Texas at Austin Moore played in Austin regularly developing a small following. This led to his debut album which was released on the short lived revival of Capricorn Records in 1993. Despite generally good reviews The album did poorly commercially and Moore remained a regional club act in Texas. Two more releases on Capricorn failed to connect to a wider audience before Moore was eventually dropped from the struggling label. Moore has continued to tour sporadically and released several more independent releases and is still active on the bar scene in the Southwest with his group The Lossy Coils. He also had a stint as lead guitarist in Jason Mraz’s live band.

In 1996 Texas is the Reason released their only full length record Do You Know Who You Are? (Revelation Records) combining a structured balance of powerful and melodic guitars, equally measured drums, and an earnest vocal delivery closer to that found on the other side of the Atlantic. As pioneers of emocore, the band’s implosion a year later on the brink of major label success is the stuff of rock lore. Texas is the Reason has since become embedded in the history of emo, if not indie rock as a whole. It’s a legacy Garrett Klahn (front man/guitarist) embraces without the constraints of definition. For Klahn, the eighteen year spread between then and now has been wide, wonderful and packed with wanderlust. Through a journey of various projects—the hook-laden Solea; the shoe-gazing Atlantic/Pacific; and most recently, his first proper solo release – Klahn’s musicianship has flourished. Where at the start of Texas is the Reason he could hardly play guitar, he has since evolved into a polished singer/songwriter. His simple desire for melody and a story remains an inspirational thread throughout.

CJ RAMONE AND TOY GUITAR
CJ Ramone is the artistic name of Christopher Joseph Ward, born October 8th 1965, known as the famous and latest Bass Player of the most legendary American punk rock band The Ramones. CJ joined the band in 1989 filling the most difficult shoes to be filled, Dee Dee Ramone’s, one of the founders and main composer of the band. Since the band retired, he has played in The Ramainz, which was formed by Dee Dee Ramone, Marky Ramone and Dee Dee’s wife, Barbara Zampini. He also played with Axe Attack, Los Gusanos, and his last group effort was with Bad Chopper.
He then devoted himself to family life but in 2008 CJ proved his will to rock hard again by launching Bad Chopper’s first CD. As lead singer and composer of all the songs, CJ put forth an album written during critical and dark moments of his personal life, in which CJ still makes room for visions of a better future. Comparisons to Ramones are inevitable, but not unique. CJ reveals his deepest personal influences: from classic bands like The Ramones, Stooges, Sex Pistols, Dead Boys and The Damned to more modern bands like Zeke, Speedealer, Fu Manchu and Queens of The Stone Age. The music is simple, but it glows by itself. It is still being acclaimed by the fans and the press as the best work ever recorded by any of the Ramones after the bands’ breakup. Just listening to this CD once will be enough to understand the reasons why CJ saved the biggest punk rock institution ever: The Ramones
