Music

The Wax Monster Lives Behind the First Rows of Trees occupies a liminal space: between EP and album, between Iowa and Hanoi, between druid and mushroom, between life before COVID and life after it.

The limited edition Orange Vinyl (300, with a bonus Live Cd Greetings from Cardigan) has sold out so we’re going for a transparent Blue second pressing, to be released on 25th February 2021, already available for presale on Bandcamp.

*** Attention: Moon Goose’s second Studio Release Available for Human Enjoyment.

Hay-on-Wye, August 2020: Area band Moon Goose has only gone and squeezed out, between the cracks of lockdown, another musical collection. The Wax Monster Lives Behind the First Row of Trees (TWMLBTFROT) occupies a liminal space between EP and album, comprising five full tracks and four micro-tracks which are short enough to be used to TikTok videos.

Full of secret communications, the record is best understood as a piece of bricolage held together by a childhood ghost, manifesting in such diverse places as a Vietnamese Banknote and an imaginary cave on the Iowa border.

The music can be enjoyed quite loud, fairly late in the day, accompanied by a human sundae machine if available, on board a fungal transport if possible.

NOTES TO EDITORS: The Wax Monster Lives Behind the First Row of Trees is available on Limited Edition Orange Vinyl, bundled with a live CD taken from Moon Goose’s set at the 17th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus Festival in Cardigan in 2019, when we could still embrace one another. It is co-published with Fruits de Mer Records and is also available for digital download at http://moongoosecult.bandcamp.com/

Source Code

2019- Source Code

Our debut album Source Code has been released on 30th April 2019 on Limited Edition Double Vinyl (+ CD) through Fruits de Mer Records.
The original pressing of 550 of double LP clear & white vinyl (cd included) sold out on the day of release. We’ve since pressed more vinyl (black this time) and got some nice digipaks too.

Live at the Globe

2018- Live at the Globe

Recorded live in our hometown of Hay-on-Wye, Wales, Live at the Globe delivers a live version of a selection of tracks from our first EP and first album. The subtle production of the studio is here replaced by the raw madness of the live show for a visual and audio experience out of the ordinary.

Space Probe Shut Down

2017- Space Probe Shut Down

Space Probe Shut Down is the perfect introduction to the weird universe of Moon Goose. 3 tracks for more than 20 minutes of strange Space Rock mixed with a hint of Psychedelia and a strange smell of Krautrock. The bird spread its wings in the barn and flapped loudly to generate those shockwaves.

      About

      Comprised of a group of established Pan Welsh French musicians (including Des Davies of the Lo-Fidelity Allstars) with a passion for Rapa Nui stone heads & dragons. Traditional tradesmen and arthouse web designers by day, astounding musos by nightfall, their hypnotic and metamorphic psychedelic ‘rock’ described by the band themselves as the “sound of a dragon colliding with an asteroid”, by Stuart Maconie (BBC 6Music’s Freak Zone ) as ‘Cambrian Psychedelia’ & Bethan Elfyn (BBC R Wales) as “big & boisterous”, has indeed plenty of Devonian old red sandstone within. There is also, if you know where to find it, gneiss…
