I first became aware of Mossburg Music when I was working w/ the Georgetown Orbits. They really seemed to be a quality label. Later on, I got to know Billy Geoghegan, the founder of Mossburg. He was a great guy, to talk with in general, about running a label, about ska and about this great country. Mossburg isn’t confined to a specific area, because Billy isn’t. Wherever he goes he brings that Mossburg magic and manages to crank out a few releases. The label has been around in fits and spurts for some time, and I for one really hope that it continues on!
