Live at the Globe, 3 years ago!

Live at the Globe, 3 years ago!

26 March 2020 - in

3 years ago we did our first gig ever!
It was at The Globe at Hay of course and it was quite a special moment.

Nobody knew what to expect and quite a few people were blown away. Quite a few people ran away screaming and never completely recovered.

Al Ashford who was doing the sound that night recorded everything without telling us and mixed what would become our second EP, Live at the Globe. We did a few CDs of this and it is now completely sold out (!) but still available digitally (free): https://moongoosecult.bandcamp.com/album/live-at-the-globe

Thanks to the friends that came to see us that night and thanks to those who came to the next gigs! We can’t wait to go back out there!

Hibernation

Hibernation

20 March 2020 - in

Hi goslings,

Like everybody else we enter now a kind of hibernation state due to the pandemic and retreat to the Moon. Space is the way!

Our gig in Hay on 25h April has been cancelled, hopefully to be rescheduled later.

The plans to take part in a magnificent Prog Fest at the end of March also.

We might be able to do the planned gig in Birmingham late May if all of this is behind us at the time.

In the meantime enjoy a sneaky preview of a new track called Edible Druid, mixed by Ryan Jordan.

Take care of you and yours and stay safe.

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.

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…
