Stealing a riff from a well known band can be disaster but if done right can be great. The later is the case for The Village Green. "Mossyrock" is just that, borrowing The Stones great guitar riff from "Brown Sugar". Channeling all that was good from 70's rock, the Green make the track work well with said riff intact. It is also important to mention that the Green have not only taken a classic riff but they have borrowed a name. Kinks fantastic 1968 "The Village Green Preservation Society" is the name borrowed for their band and for all for the right reasons.

"Feeling The Fall" - street date for release on August 29th is all about the 70's. Borrowing heavily from The Kinks, The Stones, from all the greats - derivative maybe some will call it but be rest assured, The Village Green make it their own piece of music art.
