5.5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Jim From The Moon
According to his bio, Jim From The Moon “plays acoustic tunes about girls, the devil, and similar distractions.” Jim says his songs “flow in the vein of Loudon Wainwright III and Neil Young, sung with a voice soaked in years of Irish storytelling.” As an added note, Jim says he “expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with heavy, psychedelic sounds.”
Here’s what Jim has to say:
What’s the first song you ever remember hearing?
Bat out of Hell by Meat Loaf. My dad was a big fan growing up, so it’s been in my ears since I was in utero. It was also the first bit of music I owned (my dad bought me the cassette for Christmas a hundred years ago).
Tell us about the first time you heard yourself on radio.
Back in 2012, I was in Baltimore living on a houseboat in the Chesapeake bay. Freshly heartbroken, I remember waking to an email letting me know my song Alarms would be played that day. It was a great pick me up, and something I desperately needed to forget the girl and kick myself over to Hollywood.
What sound or sounds do you love?
Space-static, thunder, room recordings of my friends and family chatting, city sounds, but not police helicopters! They’re too loud above my apartment.
What is something you still want to learn in life? How to make a video game! Before I kick the bucket, I will design and score a killer indie game to burn out kids’ retinas for years to come.
What’s your favorite kind of sandwich and what would you wash it down with? Shark Sandwich – no- a veggie burger with all the fixin’s, washed down with a super-strong beer. Dee-lish.
What one song never ever leaves your music player’s playlist? Motel Blues by Loudon Wainwright III. My brother found the album in someone’s garbage when we were young and it changed everything for me. One man’s garbage is another man’s…album he plays for everyone.
