Wired to the Moon
Vangelis and Demis Roussos in their psychedelic prog-rocker guise, Aphrodite’s Child. From the band’s 1968 debut, End of the World.
1969 Canned Heat single which featured on the 2001 re-issue of the Hallelujah LP. I wonder when they’re going to destroy your face.
Our favourite Beach Boy, Dennis Wilson’s paean to the demon drink from the classic Pacific Ocean Blue LP. Who made my moonshine intoxicate me?
Ridiculously entertaining and surreal promo video for this 1985 synth-pop number from Richard Anthony Hewson’s RAH Band.
Wonderful video of this track taken from Boney M’s 1981 Boonoonoonoos LP. Oh yes I’m sailing, feel your hot sun, African Moon.
A spot of smooth European jazz from composer Nick De Caro’s 1974 Italian Graffiti LP. Italians in Jamaica – do it better.
Experimental punk-jazz-disco from Lydia Lunch. Recorded in 1980 at Blank Tape Studios, NYC the track appears on Lydia’s Queen of Siam LP.
Thanks very much to Tam Wilson for suggesting the following Wired To The Moon tune. Minimal space-synth electronic post-punk from 1982.
