He'd be shouting from the back? ground, "Be more nuts! Be Au- bley!" Aubley was a totally different character. That was his middle name--Sam Aubley Moon. He would become a differr ent character. Like, he would be more funny, like Groucho Marx kind of stuff would be coming out of him, that kind of feel. Whereas, "Be more nuts" was just more dancing, more en? ergy. But "Be Aubley" was a different character altogether. And in mid-song, Diego would scream it out to him, "Sam! Sam! Be Aubley!" And Sam would jump right into a different character, right? Then he would start doing the duck-walk and things like that. But that had nothing to do with drugs. That was just our own Above insanity, our own show biz type Hann. Bob of attitude. Sam would be doing • ?''' • '' • that, and I would be trying to be as soul? ful as I could, while kneeling on the organ and playing it backwards with tllie hand stretched out, and things. That was my "Be more nuts." Sam was the real showman. We moved in together, and that was our first experience--well, we had a house trailer that I rented from a friend of my father's, and dragged it with my car. 'Cause I had had a job, and I had a car. It was a convertible, and we used to have to put the gear in the house trailer--a little one. It slept 5, and there were 6 of us. So, we'd have the gear in. And we'd put the • LOCAL PRODUCE • • GARDENING NEEDS • one version of Moon-Minglewood Band: 1. to r. Donnie Woods. Sam Moon. Matt Minglewood. Neil Harnet. top down, and put some of the gear in the front. And then we'd have room in the trailer to sleep. And we had it sectioned off into Heaven and Hell. Hell was the sec? tion of the trailer that only slept 2, and 3 people had to sleep in it. Heaven was the other section. Occasionally there'd be fights over whose turn it was in Hell. After that we got an apartment there in Fredericton. We lived in Fredericton for about 8 months. We moved from Fredericton to Halifax. This agent took us down there, and we were sleeping on his floor or in the park. Yeah, we'd sleep in the park, we had no place to stay and no money. But we even? tually started getting some work, we got our own apartment--the band apartment with mattresses on the floor, no furniture. More insanity, lots of insanity.
