La Nuit Release Party at St Mary’s Church, Hay-on-Wye

5 October 2022 - in

What a better place to play weird psychedelic space rock than a church? Come and witness by yourself what happens when you let Moon Goose spread their wings in a semi confined space. Expect weirdness, surreal experience, a light trauma, and a special guest to start the night. We’ll play songs from our three albums with a focus on the new tracks from our third album to be released on that very night.

 

Pre sale tickets: £7.50 (£8 at the door)

“Nuit où meurent l’azur, les bruits et les contours,
Où les vives clartés s’éteignent une à une,
Ô nuit, urne profonde où les cendres du jour
Descendent mollement et dansent à la lune.”
(Anna de Noailles)

At last we can share with you our third album, entitled La Nuit*, which we began working on during dark Covid times. This LP features 8 tracks of musical weirdness and we have tried really hard to channel the goose in each one of use and let them express their feelings. This is also our first collaboration with (tangible) Leon West and we’re very excited about the result.

Release Party at Saint Mary’s Church, Hay-on-Wye, on 14th October 2022.

The Wax Monster Lives Behind the First Row of Trees

2020- The Wax Monster Lives Behind the First Row of Trees

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.

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.

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…
