Album Notes
John Mac and the Moraggots is a virtual band conceived by SF Bay area musician and songwriter John Mac. To hear "them" live, you'll have to search out and attend one of the many open-mic nights hosted around the Bay where he tries out new material.

"Performing As the Sodermen" was originally recorded using Garageband software in 2008. John Mac and the Moraggots re-recorded the songs using ProTools in 2012. The songs included in this release were written before those appearing on the band's "Play Date" released in 2010. Two of the tracks: "One More for the Crow" and "This Melody" are tributes to a close friend who had died prior to the original album's completion. Earlier versions of "This Melody" included keyboards, layered vocal tracks and more. "One More for the Crow" features the SF Bay area's Mike Spinrad and his suitcase of percussion oddities.

No Moraggots album would be complete without at least one love song. "Performing As the Sodermen" has several including "I Know You Know," and "I Confess."

Finally, the song ends with something funky: "Everyday." The updated version features new lyrics and a tasty lead guitar part played by John Mac.

If you are one of the few, the faithful, the handful of fans familiar with the band's original release, you will appreciate the love that has been poured into these 11 tracks. If you are new to the band and wish to make your own comparisons, you can find the 2008 "Performing As the Sodermen" by searching for The Moraggots on Jamendo. Enjoy listening to the music! John Mac

Mike Spinrad

A Wonderful Pop Recording
I had the privilege of playing on some of the recordings as well as enjoying them later. Mac continues to write wonderful melodies and intriguing lyrics. Highly recommended!
