More Hillage than Gong, more Hacket than Genesis, more Thompson than Fairport and certainly more Velvet Jacket than Leather Jacket. The Freakzone friendly Yellow Moon Band will release their debut gatefold album on Static Caravan on 19th January 2009.
The Brother’s dropped some mushroom’s one afternoon after decided to experience the love behind the record of the year. Yes they would plot a histogram using Jaffa-cakes and pink wafers. During a distracted moment they pondered over the other important events in music. The Weeley festival 1971 (Juicy Lucy, demon fuzz and Hackensack and all for just £1-50); dancing in the mud in your underpants at Bickershaw to the Greatfull Dead; Cheech and Chong and Haydock Brass Band. Or what about climbing on army tanks to catch Roy Harper at the St. Helens Show. Great days with the endorphin rush of pure music jammed out by buzzing musicians.
So here we have the debut album by The Yellow Moon Band. It follows two sold out sevens and some crazy shows at the Green Man Festival. Eight tracks of Instrumental wonk that’s as darn exciting as discovering that rare side of wax that’s sorta’ Anatolian led rare groove in a bare chested wrestle with Be Bop Deluxe’s ‘Sunburst Finish’ and pressed up on Vertigo. Well it might exist in the car boot of your dreams.
