Happy New Year!
2022 will bring a new Goose album.
We can’t wait to go back to the studio first, and then go back on stage soon!
Nothing brings more joy than a gloomy video in the fog, right?
Enjoy!

Greetings From Cardigan!

22 December 2021 - in
Happy solstice to you all!
Gigs are being cancelled again, studio postponed but we couldn’t end the year without at least a little something for you, so here is Moon Goose’ Greetings from Cardigan, recorded in 2019 for Fruits de Mer’s 17th Dream of Doctor Sardonicus.
Mixed and mastered by the one and only Al Ashford.
It’s also on youtube and will be on all the other online platforms once they stop headbanging to it and actually publish it.

42nd #sibleyinvestigation postcard found by James Mannox

Date sent: 25/10/20

Date found: 05/11/21

I met Susan at the Super Foods store today but she pretended not to know me. She was with a friend and they walked past me as if I didn’t exist, chatting and laughing. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that the trout she caught was a micro-trout. I have to work on my people skills. Unless there is something else that I’m not aware of. I’ll hang around the Common room later to see if she wants to play Table Tennis. And I’ll let her win. That should do the trick.

Bá tước ngỗng

The Sibley Investigation

A collection of 60 postcards sent over months by Bá tước ngỗng, a mysterious Vietnamese Investigator on a hunt around the world (but from Sibley) to try to understand the South Popular Guy and the Wax Monster phenomena.

Each one of the 60 handwritten postcards has been sent by the band with an order of the new pressings of Source Code and The Wax Monster Lives Behind the First Row of Trees (Fruits de Mer Records, re-released on 25th February 2020, copies still available on Bandcamp).

The story will unfold when each recipient shares the content of the postcard they have received with us, by taking a photo of it and sending it to us, either by email at contact@moon‑goose.com or even better share it on social media with the hashtag #sibleyinvestigation, and let us know @moongoosecult. We will then add the postcard’s text to this page to reveal another piece of the investigation.

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.

Published by Moon Goose and Fruits de Mer Records.

All tracks written and performed by Moon Goose,
except it ain’t true, written by Faine Jade.

*** 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…
