Listening Post

The Moonlandingz like wearing bread, but they can can also write slow ballads

What is the bread stuff all about, though? And the axes, swords and guns...

We know The Moonlandingz can do provocative (scrawling “leave” across their face at a recent European festival showcase). We know they can do weird (mashing a loaf of bread up turning it into a set of on stage jewellery along with some ham and some hummus). Here’s a bit of a curveball though, they can also write a creeping, Velvet Underground-esque ’60’s noir-pop ballad. They’ve followed up their last single ‘Black Hanz’, with this new track ‘The Strangle Of Anna’. It features Slow Club’s Rebecca Taylor duetting with Johnny Rocket (aka Lias from Fat White Family).

They get extra points too, for their new band press photograph (above).

Their debut album is out on 24 March via Transgressive.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
