New band of the day: The Moonstones


Considered to be one of the most promising bands of the Spanish Garage scene at the moment, The Moonstones have recently issued their very first and long-awaited album on Germany’s Soundflat Records with a CD version being made available via Australia’s Off The Hip Records

The Moonstones are a Madrid based 4-piece who formed in 2010; Farro (vocals and Harmonica), Jesu (Drums), Carlos (Guitar, vocals), Santi (Bass, vocals) and Sergio (Farfisa Organ & piano)

Influenced by bands such as The Miracle Workers, The Chesterfield Kings or The Sonics The Moonstones produce correspondingly superb self penned music, though with a touch of Spanish ambience. They are not adverse to the occasional cover ”“ “I’ll Use Evil” was originally written by Thee Milkshakes ”“ though The Moonstones have substituted their own Spanish lyrics

The title of their debut album ”ËœFuzz, Farfisa Y Fiesta’ tells you all you need to know: Hot rocking music shot through with fuzzed guitar, 60’s Farfisa organ and a crazy party attitude; all of which is set in Spain.

The album is Garage Rock at its very best; brilliant melodies, groovy Hammond sounds, wild and fuzzy guitars, a strong, rasped punk rock vocal, add a bit of harmonica, loads of danceable rhythms ”“ underpin the whole thing with a solid chugging beat and it all adds up to a wild and fabulous garage album with a touch of Spanish ambience.

Currently lining up European tour dates with rumoured two dates in the UK.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.

  9. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
