Moxy Moxy has been playing bass for a number of years and has been in a numerous bands, the more successful of which were 'The Revivals' and 'Skyrack'. When not playing in the band (in fact whether he's playing in the band or not) Moxy likes beer festivals, decent pubs, and has been known to indulge in a pint or two of real ale. Moxy dislikes getting blamed for everything in rehearsals (usually along with Drummer Dave) but has come to realise that the rhythm section are usually the first to get blamed, even if they weren't actually playing!! Moxy likes to astound the band with his collection of weird and wonderful stringed instruments that R-Chris would like to smuggle home while no-one is looking, but generally he plays Shuker 5 string bass, Shuker fretless 4 string bass, Shuker Electric Upright Bass and uses MarkBass Amplification.
