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.
That difficult first album – it all gets off to a great start, ideas flow and you’re feeling musically inspired. But then life gets in the way, your open reel 8 track breaks down, you’re not happy with your mechanical reverb options so you have to build a plate device, the album concept is film photography so you need 24 tracks.

As I mentioned before, I’ve been addding some new kit to Moogie Studios. In fact, a lot of the album recording process in the last few months has been taken up with this. Here’s a look at my DIY plate reverb.
After kicking off the year by joining All Will Be Well Records, Moogieman And The Masochists have a packed Spring calendar. First off, another All Will Be Well gig at the Cellar on 15 April, supporting the inimitable Club Soda, then a slot at the carnivalesque Klub Kakofanney on 6 May, and finally opening the annual Oxford Punt – Nightshift Magazine’s showcase of new Oxford bands (new defined as not having played the Punt before).
In the run up to these events expect some promotional videos and also join the virtual release of Bloom – All Will Be Well Records label sampler vol. 2 on 1 April, featuring the new Moogieman track I Left My Camera On The Moon.
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.
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 »
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.
