EL GOODO With guests JAMES M CARSON, TAPP & MITCH BULLEN

Please note this is an 18+ event

Welsh psych-pop band El Goodo return with their long, long awaited third album By Order Of The Moose, due out on Cian Ciaran’s (Super Furry Animals) Strangetown Records. Recorded over the course of 8 years in an old derelict cinema in their home village of Resolven, the album is a continuation of where the band left off in 2009 with their previous effort Coyote. Wielding the wide open spaces of spaghetti westerns with the close melodic harmonies of girl groups and the good humour of Nuggets inspired garage rock’n’roll, El Goodo takes you on a trip through their fascination with 60s music.

Comprised of brothers Elliott (drums, percussion) and Jason Jones (guitar, vocals), Pixy Jones (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Lewie Sewers (guitar), Matthew Young (keyboards) and Andrew Cann (bass), El Goodo (named after a Big Star song) are a band enthralled by the past. They recorded the album on a 16-track with a small collection of faulty equipment, creating a collection of melodic pop songs, embellished with strings, brass, sitars, harmonicas, xylophones and vocal harmonies (and then seemingly covered it all with dust), that you’d expect to
find on some forgotten 60s record that someone has stumbled upon in their attic.

Despite the sheer length of time and the difficulties encountered, with By Order of The Moose El Goodo have achieved something extraordinary. The album is fully realised, cohesive and demonstrates the band’s incredible knack for catchy hooks, eloquent songwriting and terrific arrangements. By taking an odyssey through the music of the past, they have shaped a sound that is both timeless and points towards a promising future.
