Springtime with Moogieman

18 March 2016

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.

All Will Be Well with Moogieman

AWBW 2nd March PRINT

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.

What’s new in the moogosphere?

25 November 2015

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.

Fruit EP release for 28 March Wheatsheaf gig

28 March 2015

The new Moogieman EP will be available in cassette and digital download formats on Saturday at the Gappy Tooth Industries gig at the Wheatsheaf, and also on Bandcamp.

The EP has been specially mastered for tape and recorded on custom length purple cassette blanks, with printed label and insert.

It includes the songs Pomegranate, Ice Cream Van, Cold Cucumber Soup and ISON, all of which will be performed at the gig.

Strap in with the Masochists for their next gig

Here’s some snippets of the last MATM rehearsal, as they feverishly prepare for their Gappy Tooth Gig on Saturday 28 March at the Wheatsheaf.

MATM play Gappy Tooth on Sat 28 March

Moogieman And The Masochists are proud to announce our forthcoming gig at the Wheatsheaf under the auspices of Gappy Tooth Industries.

Last month Gappy Tooth celebrated their 100th show, and over the years they’ve built up a considerable reputation as one of Oxford’s most interesting, elclectic and horizon-expanding gig nights.

That means the other acts on Sat 28 March, Indica Blues and Bromide won’t be anything like MATM, but will definitely be worth seeing.

STOP PRESS: Advance copies of the forthcoming Fruit download and cassette EP will now be available for the gig.

After seeing in the new year by hosting a Surrealist-themed party and then grappling with a bad cold, here’s a somewhat belated overview of 2014 and a look at the coming year. Read the rest of this entry »

A cosmic coincidence: Clonque, the Conference of Wargamers and the Cowley Road Carnival

23 October 2014

Releasing the new video for Marine Peilstand Drei (MP3), I’m reminded that just over a year ago I received correspondence from a contributor to the Nugget, online magazine of Wargame Developments, asking if he could reproduce the lyrics to Marine Peilstand Drei (MP3) as part of an article.

I was deeply honoured to receive this unexpected request, but more than a little intrigued. However, the connection soon became clear. Read the rest of this entry »
