TMGS started a decade ago as a 100% instrumental surf and spaghetti western band, with its full name being: “The Moe Greene Specials”. The twang guitars and trumpet sound are still there but the music has evolved over the years to a more melodic pop/rock with definite alt. country influences.

Over time some of the original musicians left, other members joined and since the beginning of 2008 the band came to its final cast. Ever since TMGS has officially become the band’s name, also to emphasize their subtle break with the past.

TMGS is: Kristof Janssens (acoust. & electr. guitar, vocals); Peter Lodiers (electr. guitar, vocals); Dennis Colman (electr. bass); Koen Van Loon (trumpet, percussion, vocals); Bart Raats (trumpet); Dirk Van Rosendaal (drums, percussion, vocals); Yves Seyns (keyboards, organ, vocals).

REVIEWS

* "The Moe Greene Specials play a seriously moody and dramatic form of spaghetti western, with multiple guitars that create a thick wash of sound, and bass and drums, and accompanied by horns that add to the Morricone experience. This album is really fit for a film score." Phil Dirt – Reverb Central (USA)

* "It’s certainly the best spaghetti western album that Enrio Morricone never made and, to my ears at least, better than any of the albums hi did make. This is because it is intended for listening to rather than as an accompaniment to pictures. If you have any spagwest albums you certainly need this one too. If you ever fancied trying one and weren’t sure where to start, then this is the place. Ok hombre?" Alan Taylor – Pipeline magazine (UK)

* "From Belgium, The Moe Greene Specials play cinematic instrumental surf and spaghetti western tunes that evolve almost symphonically, with trumpets doubling the guitars. Musical influences vary from Calexico-style desert songs to Stax soul to Dick Dale." ZPTDUDA music. com (USA)

* "Hiermee maken ze een superpakkende, instrumentale mix van surf, texmex, americana, western, easy tunes en lichte soundscapes. Ofwel een heel fijne mix van Friends Of Dean Martinez, Calexico, Dick Dale, Pixies, The Treble Spankers en een vleugje Scenic. Het is niet alleen lekker, het is ook retegoed! Het zou de ideale soundtrack van een spaghettiwestern kunnen zijn, maar het kan ook je ideale plaat zijn om achterover te liggen in je hangmat en een koel bier bij te drinken." Subjectivisten. org (NL)

* "Hun instrumentale surf n’ western zou niet misstaan als soundtrack voor een klassieke mafiafilm. Zeer fraaie en pakkende liedjes, vormgegeven met contrabas, trompet, conga’s, castagnetten en andere toepasselijk authentieke instrumentelarij. Het gebeurt mij niet vaak dat een plaat mij vanaf de eerste kennismaking direct pakt maar deze keer is het helemaal raak. Ik kan hier heel erg van genieten, zo mooi en vooral sfeervol als dit album is." fileunder.nl (NL)
