Let’s remember the Source Code Release Party

Let’s remember the Source Code Release Party

4 May 2020 - in

Last week we were supposed to finish recording our second album at AR Studio. We also should have played the Globe for BrightField Spring Edition with a bunch of really cool people. Last month we missed an awesome gig that has already been reported for March next year! (more on that later)

But instead of dwelling on all that, let’s focus on the fact that we’re all fine and active. We’ve been sending each other bits of stems and whatnot and even if it really feels unnatural (our music has always happened because we were all in the same room jamming together), it still is something. We might even get a track out of it at the end of the lockdown!

A year ago, we were in a local church in Hay-on-Wye, launching Source Code with our spacesuits, smoke, lights, a choir, a church organ, lots of friends and very nice people.

We talked about making it a yearly event, or on the contrary do a tour in churches. Who knows?

The Wax Monster lives behind the first row of trees – new live EP coming soon!

24 April 2020 - in

While we’re waiting to get out to finish our second album we are pleased to announce our upcoming live EP “The wax monster lives behind the first row of trees”, featuring a mix of tracks recorded live at the 17th Dream of Dr Sardonicus last year in Cardigan.

The tracks are being mixed right now but from what we’ve got, it’s going to be quite something!

more on that live EP soon

Music

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.

    3 April 2021 - HRH Prog XI

    O2 Academy Leeds

    HRH Announces The O2 Academy in Leeds April 2021 for HRH Prog XI!

    HRH Prog XI is all about legends… and legends don’t come any bigger than Yes keyboard wizard – songwriter – producer – TV and radio presenter and author Rick Wakeman. Joining Rick in Leeds are Wishbone Ash. From the heady days of the 70s, Wishbone Ash have been - and remain - at the forefront of twin-lead guitar progressive blues rock. HRH Prog XI also welcomes one of the most respected rock drummers in the world – Carl Palmer. Carl is best known for being the man behind the sticks for the legendary prog-rock act Emerson Lake and Palmer. Still one of the premier live prog-rock acts in the country, Pendragon join us in Leeds for Prog XI. Focus fly in from Holland to join us next April. Best known of course for their 1971 hit “Hocus Pocus”, the guys are still very much active having released their latest album “Focus 11” in 2019 to critical acclaim.

    As if that wasn’t enough, HRH Prog XI will bring you Hawklords who were simply incredible at HRH Prog VIII, the amazing Karnataka, The Spacelords, This Winter Machine, Nth Ascension, Spriggan Mist, The Fierce and The Dead, The Room, Psychic Lemon. Moon Goose, Bloody Mallard, Monkey Trial and the always highly entertaining Hats Off Gentlemen, It’s Adequate.

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…
