Action Sampler EP now out

13 October 2016

Containing 12.5% of the forthcoming Girls And Film Album – that’s 3 songs out of the planned 24, plus an extra track that isn’t related to photography – the new EP serves as an amuse bouche for those keen to get a taste of the new Moogieman sound. It’s available at Bandcamp or on CD. Copies will be on sale at the next gig: 15 October at the Library, 4pm for Oxjam.

Reflections on making an album: plate reverb

17 June 2016

Moogieman And The Masochists have stumbled into 2016 by joining All Will Be Well Records – an Oxfordshire/Berkshire outfit that aims to ‘support selected artists via social media and to offer a platform for musicians to gain a wider audience.’

First up, All Will Be Well published an interview with Moogieman on their site earlier this month.

Then on Weds 2 March the label is putting on a gig at the Library featuring MATM and new label mates All Is Worth and Nelson And The Columns.

Come on down! It will be a great opportunity to catch MATM play their first gig of the year (including some new material) and check out these other two excellent All Will Be Well bands.

So, we’ve been pretty quiet at the Moogiemedia offices for a while. Behind the scenes, however, there’s been a flurry of activity.

The P.O.P. EP, released on CD at the Klub Kakofanney gig in summer, is now available for download on Bandcamp.

Mainly, though, there’s been lots of work on a new album. It has a photography theme (the planned title is Girls And Film) and is due to be released in Spring 2016. Read the rest of this entry »

MATM prepare to play Klub Kakofanney

30 June 2015

Final preparations are underway for the Klub Kakofanney gig at the Wheatsheaf on Friday 3 July.

It has now become customary to play some new songs and feature a new instrument at each Moogieman And The Masochists gig and for this one we aim not to disappoint.

We’ll be playing 3 new songs, using one new instrument and Vincent Lynch will be playing some guitar for the first time. To put the icing on the cake, advance copies of our new P.O.P. EP will be available on the night.

Here’s one of the tracks, which will be played at the gig.
