after the breakup of the excellent wolfhounds (a(nother) band i've discovered in hindsight), mr callahan's first outing with moonshake was a complete surprise.
discordant horns, the best bassist in the world (tm) and beats to kill for. along with this the usual themes of urbanism, domineering/ unassuming fathers and fiedler's tales of sex. 'bleach and salt water' still ranks as one of those bizarre tracks that always sounds quiet no matter how high the volume is, coupled with a dual drum pattern that gets under the skin. 'tar baby' for want of a better word rocks while callahan's lyrical tales of the tawdry cover the darkness of johhny vagrant ('wanderlust') and the aforementioned 'punctual, polite and efficient...obey, but do not understand'. be afraid, etc.
the only issues i have with the album is that, on this version, the tracks are in a different playing order and it sags a bit at the start (whereas before it was near the end). having said that, the extra three tracks are all of the very highest standard ('secondhand clothes' i'd heard before, the others were new to me).
a very good debut then, so by most bamds standards its extraordinary stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece, though not for the weak of ear 10 Nov. 2003
By M. Savoie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow. I had been a college radio DJ for 3 years, constantly listening to and reviewing new and different alternative music when I heard this album. I had to listen to it almost daily for a good six months before I could start feel I had heard the whole thing. Such are the layerings of music here.
Moonshake's first full length cd is their masterpiece, and their only full length album to feature the writing/performing talents of both Margaret Fielder and Dave Callahan. On Eva Luna, hers are groovy, trancey, whispery songs that make you want to gyrate; his are disdainful yet brilliant social commentaries, usually bombastic. (Margaret went on after '94's Big Good Angel EP to form the band Laika with Moonshake producer Guy Fixen.)
Callahan's ultra dry vocals do take a getting used to, but are definitely great.
This CD is a collage of muses ranging from Can, PiL, Silver Apples, while mixing in occasional jazz instruments (flute, sax) without ever being jazzy (though later compositions would.)
Highly recommended, though do give it several listens. Margaret actually suggests listening to it with a quality pair of headphones to hear everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex Pistols with Bongos 1 Feb. 2002
By Clint Kruger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
genre-bending rampages through urban decadence and self agrandizement/hatred. some smoothe ecstatic jams riddled with scrapingly loud guitar work. at least three classics, here, that almost sound like different bands, but the whole thing works as a unit. truly, one of a kind. the girl, Fiedler, sounds seductive as she whispers incendiary lyrics, and the guy, Calahan, is perpetually upset (sort of an articulate Sid Viscious).
WANDERLUST starts like a theme to a shark movie including something that sounds like rain, but better. the listener is immediately subjected to Calahan's mood swings as he describes the nobility of being homeless and lapses into a scathing criticism of modern society.
TAR BABY oscillates between Fiedler's sexy babble and loud noise crashes, after which everyone kind of takes a breather before starting up again. brilliantly quirky
LITTLE THING is a warm glowing sound collage that flies off the disc. It's detailed bass line and progressive scales make this a sensual dreamscape. It leads you head-on into the angry wall called CITY POISON which dismembers and disembowels any but the most environmentally conscious and socially responsible. CITY POISON is a classic song for anyone justifiably P-Oed at anything. It's impossibly critical, hilariously livid, and surprisingly accurate.
SWEETHEART is the first Moonshake song I ever heard. I still come back to it years later for it's sensual splicing of grinding guitar, sweet talk and bump & grind rythm. It has the signature "ringy-sounding" guitar, I think, horn samples, and spacey drops that set these artists apart.
SPACESHIP EARTH is beautiful noise that will drive away your annoying relatives during the holidays, but bathes you in a hyped-up kitchy version of Sonic Youth's sound collages.
I highly recommend Moonshake's "First" ep which is hard to find, and "Secondhand Clothes" taken from the original Eva Luna album. "Big Good Angel" is good enough to be an extension of this album into even more ecclectic subject matter including seances and child protective services! SEANCE is a personal favorite about frustrated man trying to make "inner contact" with his deceased spouse and getting ripped off by a charlatan psychic in the process. WHO WRITES SONGS ABOUT THAT?

3.0 out of 5 stars Different, Very Different 16 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Miracle Whip beats and softly surreal organ grinding melts around the alternating vocals of Margaret Fiedler and David Callahan. Bitter anger mixes with gentle confusion to jarring effect. Many of these songs (and the transitions between them) would be head-scratchers if they weren't so playful. There's definitely nothing else like Moonshake.
