MORNINGWOOD are one of those bands that i never understood why they didn't blow up bigger and have more success than they did. led by mercurial singer-songwriter CHANTEL CLARET, who has gone on to do great solo work as well as collaborate in EURINGER with husband JIMMY EURINGER of MINDLESS SELF INDULGENCE fame, they had a sound indebted to both 70s POWER POP and classic BRITISH INVASION song-craft.
i remember being aware of them in the early 00s when lots of similar bands such as THE GOSSIP where gaining attention, but i thought MORNINGWOOD stood above the ROCK REVIVAL pack for their humor and way with a hook.
definitely check them out.
