Not much to say here, either you know and love the MOVING TARGETS or you don’t. When I first heard ‘Burning in Water…’ in my tape trading days I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, it was melodic like Husker Du but played with the breakneck speed and precision of Bad Brains. Ken Chambers helped define the Boston style which incorporated tight musicianship without any sense of rock pomposity. I’d call it melodic hardcore and collected here is the 7″ given away with Thicker magazine and the Take This Ride 7″. I cannot get ahold of the ‘Blood and Flowers’ 7″ but side A is a track on the album of the same name. I’m not 100% what differentiates Moving Targets from Ken Chambers but to answer any questions you may have ever wondered read the Ken Chambers – Thicker magazine 1994 interview, it’s essential reading for anyone with an interest in Moving Targets.
