Debut album from The Moons that harks back to a golden era in British songwriting. Fronted by Paul Weller's keyboard player Andy Crofts and featuring Chris Ketley of the recently disbanded Rakes, the band craft soulful slices of classic English pop. Taking a traditional 60's sound and weaving in influences as diverse as XTC and The Specials, the resulting album straddles the decades and sits comfortably alongside contemporary groups like The Coral, The Zutons and The Bees. Not surprising Paul Weller has proved a big supporter, inviting The Moons to record the album at his studio and even featuring on piano on 'Wondering".
"Stylishly eclectic take on the past... Life on Earth fizzes with ideas, pinballing from bristling mod pop ('Don't Go Changin') and paranoic freakbeat ('Nightmare Day') to intoxicating wafts of Mersey psychedelia ('Torn Between Two') with a glee worthy of Tommy" 4****
