Bristol gig w/ 10000 Russos

12 October 2021 - in
We had a blast last night in Bristol with 10 000 Russos ! Thanks to all of you who came dancing with us, enjoyed the music, and those who got vinyls. There is nothing more rewarding as a band than to have someone come to us after the gig to say that we blew them away!
Can’t wait for the next one!
Thanks BLG Promotions and Gravy Train for having us!
We’ll Be back!

Sibley Investigation update: 46 postcards found!

27 September 2021 - in

We’re only missing 14 postcards to finish the Sibley Investigation. Some have probably been opened and ditched or framed above the chimney without sharing with us. That’s fine, it’s part of the game, but now we can’t complete the story until all has been revealed.

So if you want to help us, just send us a message at contact@moon-goose.com with your postal address and we’ll send you one of the missing ones alongside with a few goodies!

Follow-up on the EU shipping madness

Follow-up on the EU shipping madness

7 July 2021 - in
Not long after the previous worrying news of the new VAT based system imposed on everything shipping from the UK to the EU, I got in touch with Bandcamp (our main platform to spread the Goose sounds) and their reply is reassuring. They’re working on it, but everybody is trying to do the same so it’s stuck on a higher administrative plane for now.
There is hope!
Also we’re heading back to the studio on Friday with a guest to add more madness to the previous recordings.. This new album is becoming more and more tangible..

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.

*** 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.

    2 April 2022 - HRH Prog XI [postponed to 2022]

    O2 Academy Sheffield

    HRH Announces The O2 Academy in Sheffield 2nd and 3rd April 2022 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…
