Quote from the mooncats:
The Mooncats began when a series of like minded musicians, (sick of hearing bands that could be easily pigeon holed) formed a bond with an urban poet, and began honing their craft. In a very short space of time, The Mooncats were spreading their tales of Barrow life all over the North West of England. The music seemed to come effortlessly, the lyrics almost wrote themselves. The very town that we live in inspired us to write what we write and play how we play. Over the two years or so of The Mooncats full existence (to the form it is today), there have been one or two minor changes made to the line up. Creative differences occur at the best of times, what's said is said, and the future is there for the taking, we don't dwell on what's happened, but take it, build on it, and head to the future.
Since the bands creation many moons ago, there have been some vast and incredible musical journeys occur. The people we have met so far along the way have been incredible and we have made some fantastic friends from being involved in the music industry.
Some of the acts, local, national and even international, we have had the pleasure of working with along the way are:
Neville Staple (The Specials), Miles Hunt (The Wonderstuff), The Airborne Toxic Event, The Holloways, Cajun Dance Party, Sevens, The Dead Class, Gear, Vinnie Peculiar & Many, many more!
2009 is looking to be a very exciting year for The Mooncats as we plan to release both our debut single and album. We hope that many of you take the time to listen to what we do and enjoy it, we are all very happy with how the album sounds and are really excited for the launch.
As with any band, we have had our fair share of feedback from promoters, venues and such, here's what some of them said:
