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..
Change in postage fees starting on 1st July for all orders going to the EU

Starting tomorrow, VAT has to be taken into consideration for every order we send to the EU, which means that because we can’t have a VAT Number for every country we send to and accountants etc. the fees will be charged to you and that’s not good for anyone.
It’s a freaking mess and even though everybody is working to try and find a solution (like having Bandcamp handle that side of things for instance like other platforms do), we don’t have one right now. Another option would be to use a EU distributor to group things and let them handle distribution in the EU.
We’ll keep you updated of course. And if you live anywhere else and would like some Goose gifts, nothing’s changed, https://moongoosecult.bandcamp.com/.
Brexshit, the gift that keeps on giving.
Heading to the studio once more!

Heading to the studio once more!

24 June 2021 - in

We’ve been a bit quiet these last weeks.. It’s because we’re working hard on tracks at the moment.
Next week we’re heading to AR Studios to add songs to the next album! (unknown shape as of today)
Our previous studio session was in July 2019! Since then we’ve booked the studio several times and had to cancel each time due to lockdown. The tracks have kept evolving over that period and I’m not really sure anymore which ones we wanted to record at that time.. We tend to create new stuff all the time instead.

One of the new tracks is about broken tools.
One is about sex bots.
One is about Siddhartha.
One is an improvised jam that appeared last week and might be included in one form or another if we have the time.

Exciting times ahead!

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.

Live

  • 5 October 2021 - 10 000 Russos + Moon Goose ◦ The Crofters Rights

    Crofters Right, Bristol, UK

    10,000 Russos are a formidable force within modern psychedelia; their industrial psych/post-punk has been charming fuzz-heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant.

    During the last 9 years, the portuguese band produced 4 LPs (3 on Fuzz Club Records) as well as split records with the likes of Oscillation and RMFTM. They toured heavily with 6 europeans and 1 mexican tour as well as presence on the principal festival within their genre.

    During 2020, Russos had changed one band member (André Couto on bass left, Nils Meisel arrived on synths), changed their sound direction and recorded one LP, that will be out on Fuzz Club in September 2021.

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…
