MOIST - The BEST Canadian rock band formed in 1993 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their first release was the 1993 self-titled indie cassette, which they made with Kevin Hamilton. Only 35,000 copies were made. By the end of 1993, Moist had landed a deal with EMI Music Publishing Company and recorded their debut CD "Silver", using a couple songs off the indie release and some new songs. With huge support from MuchMusic, they had sold 5,000 copies in just 6 weeks! In spring of '94, they signed to EMI Music Canada worldwide and won a Juno for best new band. This album that cost less than $5,000 to make had sold almost 4 times platinum in Canada alone and gold in Thailand. After being on the road for 2 years, and promoting 5 singles (Push, Believe Me, Silver, Freaky Be Beautiful, Machine Punch Through) they decided to settle down and write a new record. But before they did that, the whole band relocated to Montreal, Quebec. October 1996, Moist released their sophmore record Creature. In a matter of 4 months the album had already went double platinum! They've released 4 tracks (Leave It Alone, Resurrection, Tangerine, Gasoline) off of Creature so far, and have toured the country numerous times!!
