The lovely people at My Generation: Touched by the Hand of Mod have a little treat for us all â€“ FREE Music by The Moons.
With only 2 weeks to go until the inaugural My Generation: Touched by the hand of Mod all-nighter at the Concord 2 in Brighton; Mod fever is rising and the My Generation crew are keen to whet the Mod appetite.
The Moons are a Northampton and Kettering five-piece founded in 2007 by multi-instrumentalist Andy Crofts â€“ the singer-songwriter who previously played bass in the On-Offs and today is keyboardist in Paul Wellerâ€™s band.
The line-up is completed by guitarist James Bagshaw, drummer Ben Gordelier, bassist Adam Leeds and keyboardist Tom Warmsley.
The Moonsâ€™ debut album Life On Earth from March 2010 was an indie Top 30 hit and heads a return to classic songwriting, mixing Beatleish melodies with Kinksy guitars.
It has spawned the three contagious singles Torn Between Two, Nightmare Day and Let It Go.
Other influences include Brian Wilson, The Coral, Joe Meek and Buzzcocks.
The group are currently working on their second album due for release next year. James also plays keyboards in the Lightning Seeds.
Here is a free download of The Moons â€“ â€˜Chinese Whisperâ€™ to give us a taster.
