The Moons are a indie rock band from Northampton (UK) that formed in 2007. In the band we have singer/guitarist/songwriter Andy Crofts, - who looks like Gem Archer or a young Ray Davies - drummer Ben Gordelier, guitarist and backing vocalist James Edward Bagshaw, bassist Adam Leeds and keyboardist Tom Warmsley.
Listening to The Moons - something I've been doing prolifically - it's obvious they're no run of the mill indie band instead I think it'll be fair to say their sound derives from '60s freakbeat with bands such as the Small Faces, The Attack and The Action but bringing it more up to date with a touch of Dodgy perhaps and The Las. They create their art in the purest form, the way it should be really with short catchy tunes, harmonious interludes, plucky guitar, McCartneyesque bass and rhythmic drum solos juxtaposed with soulful vocals. Their debut album,
Life On Earth which was released last year on the Acid Jazz label is melodic master-class; each track on it could easily be a stand-out single with absolute no monotony, it's like a 'best of'! This is something that should surely threaten the quality of 'that difficult' second album? Well, the answer to that is not likely! Their second album due hopefully this April is being recorded now and the demos I've heard so far are outstanding. You can pretty much guarantee that the production is gonna be second to none for they have no other than Mr Edwyn Collins on board.

Bought this solely on reviews and the fact that Andy Croft plays in Weller's band. So glad I did as this CD is excellent. It's hard to describe their sound, it veers from the Beatles, to the Prisoners, to the Kinks. No bad thing at all.
I can't recommend this CD enough.

I came to The Moons through a recommendation from West Heath Yard recording studios, and bought Life On Earth as a punt. I had no preconceived ideas of their sound or image. I was captivated by this album, and couldn't believe that no-one had championed them to global stardom. Yes, I am that naive. I went to see The Moons at King Tut's in Glasgow, and was shocked to discover their Mod roots. Imagine, perfectly formed songs, pop band with rock influence, so heavily influenced in the Mod culture. I do like Mod music, but hadn't noticed the inflection. Buy this album. Not for it's Modness. Buy it for it's perfection of modern pop rock melodies and well crafted songs. In fact, buy it just for 'How Long' my song of this century. So far.

No disrespect to the band, but this melodic feelgood album kicks the lazy, formulaic,"call-me-indie-and-count-the cash" attitude of so much current music right up the exhaust pipe with a pair of Converse trainers. Its fresh, interesting and can be put on repeat without boredom setting in by play 3. While I cant really agree that its so modfather-influenced as some say, imagine if Razorlight or the Strokes stopped taking themselves so seriously and made goodtime music to chug pints to and you've got the moons.

Album purchased after seeing The Moons supporting Ocean Colour Scene in Manchester. Foot-tapping drum and bass lines will soon have you singing along to this stunning debut album. Hopefully the 'Chinese Whispers' will get much louder for these lads!! A dozen quality tracks, with supporting guitar and piano on 2 tracks by the Modfather himself, Paul Weller. 'How Long' before the boys become the nations new 'Everyday Heroes'. Buy it now!!

Being a massive Weller fan i was looking forward to seeing what Andy Croft could come up with.His band The Moons should appeal to all Weller/Small Faces fans.The CD is well worth buying,i would highly recommend it.After seeing them at the 1OO club Mod Christmas Fest Gig i can honestly say that they are just as good live as on CD.Keep up the great work Andy....

A cleverly written and brilliantly performed album. Hard to believe it's their debut album but that at least means there's lots more to come. I can't wait for their next album !
