The Mooney Suzuki

You’d be hard put to guess how these New York garage rockers, formed in 1996, chose their name unless you happened to know that the hugely influential 70s krautrock experimentalists Can featured Andrew Mooney, an American sculptor, on vocals until he had a breakdown and was replaced by Damo Suzuki. (At least four other bands, including Spoon, are named after Can songs or albums.) The Mooney Suzuki singer and guitarist Sammy James Jr co-wrote the superb title song for School of Rock. Here they are, Alive & Amplified.
