Moving Targets

654 Fall by Moving Targets


Taang! Records
Release year
Ken Chambers, Lou Giordano

On 1991's Fall, Boston's Moving Targets refined their post-punk/post-hardcore sound with catchier guitar riffs and emotive vocals

Author & Special Guests

By 1991, Moving Targets were already well established in the Boston music scene upon the release of their third full-length, Fall. Lead by Kenny Chambers on vocals and guitar, the band that started out playing Husker Du-esque hardcore evolved like their contemporaries, downshifting the tempos and finding more melody. Tracks like "Answer" and "Away From Me" were primed for college radio alongside The Replacements, Goo Goo Dolls, Dramarama, and other post-punks finding their songwriting footing. The twists and turns, like using an e-bow on a mid-album instrumental track, add a layer of creativity not many other post-hardcore bands would attempt, even if the payoff doesn't always hit.
