Journey To The East – new live video

10 February 2020

After a Christmas and January spent in quiet introspection and loud rehearsing, Moogieman and The Masochists played their first gig of the decade on Friday to a packed Klub Kakofanney at the Wheatsheaf.

With the help of our friends in the headline act Mandrake Handshake we managed to put together a video of the opening number, Journey To The East, in case you didn’t manage to get along.

Spooky no. 13 for Ghost Driver in Nightshift’s top tracks of the year

22 November 2019

Nightshift Dec 2019 top 25 - number 13 MATM

Moogieman songs have made into Nightshift Magazine‘s top 25 tracks of the year for the last 3 years. This year, Ghost Driver, the new single featuring all of the Masochists has climbed higher than ever before to 13th place.

Released on Halloween, is this placement the result of malign forces at work in East Oxford, or even the result of satanic rituals and a summoning at the Moogieman commune, or just coincidence?

Look forward to more esoteric pronouncements from the band in 2020.

Nightshift cover Dec 2018 - MATM

Oxford music magazine, Nightshift was kind enough to feature the band on the cover of their December issue. There’s also a double-page spread inside, containing an interview with Moogieman and the Masochists talking about the new Doppelganger EP, band politics, and oddball influences.

The cover photo is by Jason Warner of glasshertzzphoto and we think he did a cracking job.

All Will Be Well Records has announced the release of a new Mooogieman EP on 21 November. Doppelganger consists of four tracks recorded together at Moogie Studios with the valuable production assistance of All Will Be Well’s Stefano Maio.

The release is driven by more instrospective, abstract themes than last year’s Girls And Film album, from the title track that was penned in response to Shan Sriharan’s (aka Moogieman) concerns about reports Read the rest of this entry »
