Moist was a five-piece Canadian alternative rock band that was popular in the mid-to-late-1990s. The band was led by lead singer David Usher. Other members of the band were Mark Makoway (guitars), Jeff Pearce (bass), Kevin Young (keyboards) and Paul Wilcox (drums).
Moist formed in the early 1990s and eventually released an independent cassette in 1993. The cassette caught the attention of EMI, who released their first full-length studio CD, Silver, in 1994. The album went on to sell 400,000 copies in Canada on the strength of hard-hitting singles like "Push", "Silver" and "Believe Me".
In late 1996, Moist released their sophomore album Creature to favourable reviews. The album included the hits "Leave It Alone", "Resurrection", and "Gasoline", all being placed on high rotation on MuchMusic?.
Following the band's second album, Creature, David Usher released his first solo album, Little Songs.
