The Moonies release their third single I Would Give It All Up For Your Love on the 19th May 2003.
Liverpool based three piece The Moonies release their next single fresh on the back of a succesful UK tour with The Buzzcocks.
Energy and dynamism is everything to The Moonies live set. If you missed the first two singles, dont make the same mistake again.
In a nutshell, they look and sound what a great new wave band used to look and sound like...
The Moonies take you back to the classic days of mod-infused rock'n'roll,to bands like the Beatles, Small Faces and The Who, capturing the style, rawness and energy and of that golden age of music while blending it finely with a sprinkling of post-modern irony.
Wearing their musical hearts on their sleeves and T-shirts The Moonies plainly believe in SONGS. Watching them live you may find yourself thinking you're in the 100 Club or that you've been transported back to the Roxy circa 1978 or the Marquee in its heyday.
With an average age of nineteen and half, the three who make up the Moonies are the manic Keith Moonesque antics of drummer Mike, the effervescent frontman speil from vocalist / guitarist Steve with the enigmatic six footer ryan hauling in the basslines.
The band have a youthful energy-espousing ageist cynicism - that comes across in their songs treading a not dissimilar path to that of the likes of Supergrass and Ash harnessing that with the collective sense of style founded on The Who, Beatles, Jam, Buzzcocks et al.
Decide for yourself.
