The Moonlandingz have announced their debut record Interplanetary Class Classics and shared a maniacal new video for their single "Black Hanz".
The GOASTT's Charlotte Kemp Muhl shot and directed the new "Black Hanz" visuals.
The Moonlandingz - Lias Saoudi and Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family, plus Eccentronic Research Council' Adrian Flanagan and Dean Honer - began life as "a fictional band from a fictional town", but now they're very much real.
Interplanetary Class Classics was recorded with Sean Lennon at his upstate New York studio. The LP features collaborations with members of Slow Club and the Village People (yep, those Village People), as well as Yoko Ono & Friends.
“It's a celebration of the outsider, the depressed, the sexually inept, the disenfranchised, the politically unengaged or undecided, the bullied, the lonely, those people at point break," says Flanagan. "We really do seem to be reaching those very people who are looking for that voice in the dark, for that wonky discotheque that will relight the fire in their soul."
Johnny Rocket (Lias Saoudi) adds: “It is with a great lack of humility that I would like to announce the release of the album of the epoch, a derogatory slap in the face of good taste and decency, an album synthesised out of pure irresponsibility and sheer self-adoration. Consider this album two great monoliths, one of misanthropy the other self-love, it is unyielding in its perfect duality. There shall be no such thing as pop music henceforth, for in the wake of this cultural Big Bang all other efforts in the medium will appear to be what they always truly have been: puddles of tepid consciousness.”
The Moonlandingz have also announced their first-ever full UK and Ireland tour, with shows at London's Village Underground and Glasgow's Stereo confirmed. Tickets are available from 2 December - get more info and full dates.
