The Moonlandingz are the semi fictional psych-pop group put together by Sheffield’s practical electronics wizards and analogue taxidermists, ‘The Eccentronic Research Council’ (Adrian Flanagan & Dean Honer) & Fat White Family’s frontman, Lias Saoudi and guitarist, Saul Adamczewski.
Black Hanz is the first single, a taster for their debut album – due in 2017 – was produced by The E.R.C with Sean in Sheffield & New York, and mixed by legendary Flaming Lips, Tame Impala and MGMT producer, Dave Fridmann.
This EP marks the first release for the band following their signing to Transgressive Records after a breakneck sold out UK tour…
Frontman, Johnny Rocket, the well meaning, ultra narcissistic, alter ego of Lias Saoudi said this about the single.
“Our ode to the odious little England hegemony we have suddenly found ourselves sinking into, ‘Black Hanz’ represents the soundings off of one Johnny Rocket, dutiful masochist and world ranking narcissist. You can’t beat small mindedness into a man that revels in the fact that he is a shell of his future self, you cannot un-polish a turd!”
