moonlandingz Interplanetary Class Classics (Deluxe Edition) (double CD, £10.50)label: transgressive
The Moonlandingz - the band born from a semi fictional concept album by Sheffield electronic analogue weirdos the Eccentronic Research Council and fronted by Fat White Family's legendary frontman, Lias Saoudi - release an extended deluxe version of the overwhelmingly critically acclaimed debut album ‘Interplanetary Class Classics’. The deluxe includes a single version of album closer ‘This Cities Undone’ featuring guest vocals from Yoko Ono and Human League’s Phil Oakey, alongside a Confidence Man remix, new cut ‘Dirty Red Rose’ from the band’s recent ‘Cities Undone’ EP and lots more previously unheard bonus material. Praise for ‘Interplanetary Class Classics’: “A rip-roaring busman’s holiday” - Q (****); “Top-drawer psycho-disco for malcontent and the disillusioned” - Mojo (****); “A grotesque yet groovy melting of minds” - Uncut (****); “Straddle the elusive line between the ridiculous and sublime” - Loud & Quiet (8/10); “Brilliant” - NME (4/5); “There will be more considered and crafted albums released this year, but few that are so much fun.” - The Guardian (4/5); “Their debut packs a far mightier punch than the output of almost any other contemporary group with whom they may share certain influences” - The Line of Best Fit (8/10). ‘Interplanetary Class Classics’ has appeared on Best Of 2017 lists from The Quietus (#4), Mojo (#11), NME (#45), Uncut (#55).
