Album Notes
About MOKOBENj the album

The current release is a 11 track album, titled Mokobenj. All tracks are written by Shane Pyers .
The beds for Only Human and Your Playground were recorded live at the Iona Hall in Woodville NSW Australia, just down the road from where Shane and Bruce live. This process was completed in about 3 hours. Overdubs were done later to add vocals, acoustic guitar and keyboards.
All other tracks were recorded completely in the studio.
The tracks were mixed and mastered at the studios of Bruce Schneider Audio Productions.
The band co-produced the album and the recording was completed in a number of sessions over a period of about 4 weeks.


We've been involved in music all our life in one form or another. Mokobenj actually started about two and a half years ago with a very different line up to the current one and a very different sound. Shane and Bruce are the only original members of that line up with Jason, Shawn (Thomo) and Chris moving into the band in that order.
A lot of us look back to some of the great rock acts of the 70's for our inspiration. Bands like Deep Purple, Pink Floyd and many others. We also take some inspiration from some current international acts like U2 and Muse. However, most of our inspiration comes internally from our aim as a team, to become the next band famous for the latest cutting edge music produced with thought provoking lyrics and creative musicianship. We aspire to use our music as a means to communicate a positive message for the benefit of all.
Although some of our sound is harking back to that 70's "heavy metal" sound, Shane writes material that has a pop sensibility, while Bruce's electronica background adds an additional keyboard element not seen in current heavy rock which is predominantly guitar based. This all mixed together with the solid, driving rhythm section powered by Jason and Thomo, the soaring vocals of Shane and the liquid prowess of guitarist Chris.
This all fused together helps to create a very different sound.
Our aim as an original act is to create songs that have a unique musical feel & arrangement. Whilst we draw inspiration in our individual musicianship from a diverse range of bands we don't want to be pigeon holed as a band that plays 70's or 80's music or sounds like this or that band. Like all artists who aspire to make a career from original music we want our music to be relevant in mainstream music today & into the future.
