Moon Unit is a soaring and pounding space rock group from Glasgow, Scotland, with forthcomingLPs on Blackest Rainbow and Krayon Recordings. Previously having swung through these parts asNackt Insecten Trio, the now more democratically-monikered group, consisting of Ruaraidh Sanachan(Nackt Insecten), Andreas Jonsson (Lanterns) and Peter Kelly (Sexy Entourage), are back to openyour third eye. Prepare for electronic meditation and heavy levitation.
If you’ve caught Irma Vep before, you’ll know the score. Edwin Stevens, a welsh Jim Morrison foryour generation, and his wee gang of reprobates twist blues and folk forms into perplexing futureshapes, extended song-trees of self-absorption/annihilation.
Barbarian siblings CK Dexter-Haven (Giant Tank, Hockyfrilla, Smegma(!)) and Smear Campaign(Ghost of an Octopus, Mid Leopard Violet Prism, The Gamecock) lock malformed horns as Tube ofMould, oozing psychedelic primitivism and sensory displacement. Lock up your livestock!
