Moon Goose is a new band on Fruits de Mer. They came to Keith Jones’ attention last year on Facebook. Keith really liked what he heard, so he persuaded them to contribute a track, “The Mysterious Coffins of Arthur's Seat,” to the FdM members club compilation CD Sideshows by the Seashore. And the band also provided a CD sampler for 16th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus festival goodie-bag. The reception was so positive that Moon Goose chose FdM to release their first album. Not only is their debut on vinyl, it is a double LP of twelve instrumental tracks! Quite an ambitious debut. The twelve instrumentals are all similar, yet different, be it Krautrock jamming, gothic Western, surf guitar, psych jamming ala Wooden Shjips, garage rock, hypnotic excursions like the Smoke Fairies, or hard rock, all are standout tracks. The high point for me is the final track “Fist Fight at the Bingo” with its swooping synths, agressive bass, and Krautrock jamming. FdM has a winner on their hands with Moon Goose; released in April 2019, the album has already sold out. You may be able to find an odd copy here and there, and there is always the eBay or download option. But if you like Harmonia, Hawkwind, The Doors, Wooden Shjips, garage rock, Krautrock, or hypnotic trippy jams, you will definitely find something to your liking on Source Code.
