LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Moon Maan Official Website) - Video For First Single "Be Good To Me" Can Be Seen On YouTube; Moon Maan Is Also Planning A Fall Tour

What do MOON MAAN and The Afghan Whigs have in common? Two things, actually: guitarist extraordinaire Rick McCollum, for one, and also the release of a CD on June 5...

From its first cut "Be Good to Me" throughout the CD, Minneapolis-based MOON MAAN's debut is a ghostly, groovy, grisly and bluesy sound that emerged along city streets and in the shadows of skyscrapers. For frontman McCollum, who contributes vocals, guitars and theremin to the four-piece band's Zeppelin- and Whigs-inspired debut, that kind of layering of experiences to create an entire sound makes sense. "I love things that require a lot of tracks to make one sound," he says. "I'm inspired by artists like Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus...I like using all these little things, all these voices, all these sounds, to try to make something else."

The Afghan Whigs will also be releasing a retrospective on the very same day called Unbreakable (Rhino). Rick McCollum's guitar work is featured prominently, of course, on such tunes as "Retarded," "Turn on the Water," "Let Me Lie to You," "Debonair" and "I'm Her Slave," among many others...

The simple-yet-supercool video for "Be Good to Me" can currently be seen on YouTube, and there is a fall tour currently being planned...
