The Moons @ The 100 Club, Oxford Street

All Mod Cons went to the 100 Club again the other night to check out The Moons. With front man Andy Crofts and the rest of the band on absolutely fine form it was definitely a night to remember. Please feel free to check out their MySpace page (above) and their blog (HERE), which is currently showing footage of them supporting Ocean Colour Scene in Crewe.

Turning up to the venue early to get tickets saw unexpected benefits, with AMC stumbling in on The Moons going through their sound check. Normally you don't get to see any of this so out came the camera to record the moment.

After they'd finished Andy came over to say hello (and probably make sure we weren't up to no good). Not only is he an excellent musician but he's incredibly approachable and was more than happy to have his photo taken with yours truly. He even put me and CF on the guest list. Mr Crofts, you're a gent.

With the support act, Operator 6, warming the crowd up nicely The Moons took to the stage and let fly with 8 fantastic tracks. Expect to hear big noises from this band coming your way soon. For those of you fortunate enough to be living in the UK look out for details of them supporting The Rifles and more OCS gigs. If my luck holds out I'll be heading up to Camden next Wednesday to see them with The Rifles at the Narrow Minded Social Club.

The evening was filled with fantastic music and even more excellent people. Outside I saw legend that is Eddie Piller again (top bloke that he is) and the outstanding Stefan who was there proving once again that he is a ludicrously good photographer. Below are some more snaps of some of the bods that I was with.

And Czech Boy showing how the Europeans end their nights...

All in, a brilliant evening. Special shouts to Andy, Ed, Stefan, P, K, Debs, Darren, and everyone else.

Looks like a fun time. I've never heard of that band, but I'll keep my eyes and ears open so I can do that irritating "I saw that band on a blog agggggggggggggges ago" when they make it big.
