Moonmen on the Moon, Man
MOONMEN ON THE MOON, MAN // “MAAN EP ” (CAPE SHOK CSR003)
What Planet are YOU ON, MANNNN?Dude, OK honestly, it’s just another band. They’re great though: truly catchy, stripped down, but pummeling. Loud Fast Rules, tons o’ fun. Inter-twingling female/male lead vocals, Television-style licks that don’t sound anything like Television. It’s Rockist over-riffage, with nods to The Wipers, Wire and NZ kiwipop hither & dither. We are psyched to present to you their debut release! 8 songs, shot over the moon and back with us here in our hot hands.In 2011 they celebrated their 3rd year in a row mentioned in one of those lists during CMJ that are like “20 dumbest-named bands during CMJ”.
Currently plays regularly at NYC venues such as Cake Shop, Death By Audio, Cameo Gallery, Public Assembly, Bruar Falls (RIP), Silent Barn (RIP), The Gutter, Matchless & bunch of homes.
Personnel: Andy Bodor [head booker and Co-Owner at Cake Shop, in NYC], Isabel Martin [ex Yellow Fever, Robots Please], and first-time drummer Roxanne Lange.
Current lineup: Andy Bodor, Isabel Martin, Jim Campbell [Paper Fleet], Mister Chen [Jenny & The Holzers].
“Moonmen on the Moon, Man specializes in fizzy, super-concise garage punk—the kind that compels you to hop around like a caffeinated grade-schooler.”
-Time Out NY 1/12
They are the official house band at Cake Shop, in NYC. Also, they are the band that you hear at the end of every single video clip from Cake Shop’s intrepid video series / YouTube channel, Cake Shop Presents.
