MOXY FRUVOUS Live Noise (Warner)

Jennie Punter

Fans of harmonizing humorists Moxy Fruvous need only close their eyes and imagine the onstage antics of the Toronto quartet, who perform original hits ("King Of Spain," "My Baby Loves A Bunch of Authors") and popular "moxy-fied" cover tunes (Tom Waits' "Jockey Full Of Bourbon" and Bee Gees' "I've Gotta Get A Message To You") on Live Noise. Recorded in the U.S. in front of drunken college crowds and in sundry clubs - and including snippets of onstage banter and an inspired quiz-show improv entitled "The Lowest Highest Point" -- the 23-track album is, uh, a trip to bargainville.
