Moxy became one of Canada's best heavy rock acts during the mid seventies. Formed in Toronto in the mid seventies by vocalist Buzz Shearman and guitarist Earl Johnson, they were also well received in the US, where they toured after the release of their third album in 1978. Shearman was plagued by booze and drug problems and he ultimately died following a motorcycle crash. His replacement was Michael Rynoski. Moxy released a fourth and final album before splitting in 1978. As far as we are aware, three of their albums are now available on CD and are great examples of powerhouse boogie rock.
