As many great stories do, the tale of Moving Picture Show began with a solitary want ad in a Los Angeles paper. "Guitar Player Wanted”, it read. That little ad proved to be the catalyst that put Matt Kap in a room one day with Scott and Jeremy. And with a few half-forgotten prayers from Sunday school, a handful of sweaty rehearsals, and some slyly won eBay auctions of rusty marching band instruments, Moving Picture Show was born.
Moving Picture Show is a school bus sing-a-long if the MGMT, Peter Gabriel, Franz Ferdinand and the Cars were all in first grade together. Their songs fuse the peach fuzz sounds of the early 80s with modern dance rock energy, and their mission is simple: to make you spasm, shout and drop your jaw with their songs, spirit and fierce joy that could make your heart pound a little harder.
Moving Picture Show has been played repeatedly on KROQ's "Locals Only" with Kat Corbett in Los Angeles. They’ve been recently featured in MTV’s latest installment of The Real World: Brooklyn and Road Rules Challenge. Their official KROQ interview can be heard on www.kroq.com
“Catching an MPS show was like being a kid watching a three-ring circus...claps, a cappella whispers, and whistling...when combined with good music and talented musicianship, it can create magic, just as MPS does. Indeed, if there is an equation to formulating a catchy tunes, this act understands the science.”
