  • Moon Gangs Instore this Friday!!!!

    Posted on 2014/04/29 by Linda

    Moongangs_flashback_WEB(Poster and Moon Gangs EP artwork by Linda.)

    MOON GANGS (aka London producer Will Young) will play live in the basement of our Essex Road shop on FRIDAY 2nd MAY at approx 8pm. Free beer from 7pm.

    Moon Gangs releases an EP with Sexbeat London on Monday 5th May (we will have advance copies available on the night of the in-store).

    Clash Magazine says : "...this rising electronic artist has gradually, patiently built up a style which sits somewhere between the likes of Blanck Mass, The Haxan Cloak and, say, the 'Blade Runner' soundtrack."

    So if you're in to "dark, brooding electronic noise, dissolving into glistening, blinking retro-futuristic synths" with accompanying free alcohol....we will see you in the basement.

    FREE, as always. 'Attend' the thing on Facebook here!
