Toronto band gets it together

Ed Condran

It can be a curse to be diverse unless you know how to handle your various talents.

A few years back Moxy Fruvous tried to combine its poppy songwriting sensibility with its zany ideas. It didn't work. However, the Toronto quartet realized it could have it both ways.The group crafts relatively straightforward pop albums these days such as 1999's "Thornhill" and offbeat discs like the group's latest "The C" Album, which is available through the band's Internet site.

Philadelphia following

The band has a considerable following in Philadelphia.

"Philadelphia has always been great to us, bassist Murray Foster said. "We've gotten plenty of support from WXPN. We're very fortunate that we get such a great response there so of course we always love going back to that town."
