George FM presents 'Here's Willy Moon' live DJ set at 1885!
Thursday, May 23rd at 9pm.
Last month saw the release of Willy Moon’s debut album Here’s Willy Moon through Island Records/Universal Music. The former Wellington schoolboy has been making big waves in the U.K and garnering huge acclaim for his uniquely throwback sound and style. Moon has been tipped by everyone from Q to Vogue as the one to watch in 2013. Having been snapped up by legendary label Island Records in the U.K and music giant Interscope in the U.S, Willy is destined for worldwide stardom.
Here’s Willy Moon was written, recorded and produced all on his own (with a few tracks being produced by Pulp's Steve Mackey) and he doesn’t blend different sounds; he smashes them together. There’s no middle ground. It’s as if rock’n’roll had been deep-frozen in 1965, just before the Beatles discovered acid, and abruptly reanimated 45 years later by a laptop hip hop producer.
Willy Moon doesn’t like to waste time. His debut album, Here’s Willy Moon, is less than 29 minutes long. Only one of its 12 songs lasts more than three minutes and not a single note is squandered. No bets were hedged during the making of this record. "My album is short like my songs. I always loved the relentlessness and excitement of that first Ramones album and there's something of that spirit in there. I think it will surprise people who've only heard ‘Yeah Yeah’, there's some slower, more atmospheric songs on it and one that even last for over three minutes...ha!"
