Stanton Moore to Release New Studio Album with Tom Morello and Boots Riley
Galactic drummer Stanton Moore recently completed a series of studio sessions with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and rapper Boots Riley. The unlikely trio are scheduled to release the project under the name the Street Sweeper via Epic Records this spring. As first reported by New Orleans The Times-Picayune, Moore first met Morello at a November 2006 Future of Music Coalition benefit concert held at Tipitina’s and the new friends first bonded while standing at the bar of Ernie K-Doe’s Mother-in-Law Lounge. Meanwhile, Boots Riley is one of the many MCs who appeared on Galactics 2007 hip-hop disc, From the Corner to the Block.
Morello recently reunited with his Rage Against the Machine bandmates for a series of shows, including an appearance at Octobers Vegoose (an event which is co-produced by Galactic managers Superfly Presents). The guitarist also performed at Bonnaroo as The Nightwatchman.
