The name Pinder will strike a chord with fans of the legendary Moody Blues. Mike Pinder started the Moodies back in 1965 and his great voice and mellotron gave the band a sound that still echoes down the hallways of rock's heritage. Now the name Pinder is back, this time with Mike's two sons, Matt and Mike, throwing their hats into the rock arena with The Pinder Brothers.
Indeed Matt Pinder and Mike Lee Pinder, are out to make their own noise as The Pinder Brothers.
Great playing and a batch of some great new songs give these guys a green light to carry the Pinder sound further. The title track of their 2006 CD, Jupiter Falls is a future pop classic by any standard.
Listen to the Pinder Brothers and you'll hear the sounds of pop's past merging into the future: classic '60s pop, the post punk, heady sound of the MTV '80s and the retro pop resurgence of the '90s mix things up in the finest Pinder tradition. Give a listen!
