Friday 26 October 2012
The Exchange
72 – 73 Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0EJ
8.00pm – 3.00am | £10 adv | Buy Tickets

yes its on the 26th October performing at one of Qujunktions fantsatic multi-media events at a new Bristol venue called The Exchange.

We’re honoured to be playing alongside the amazing François and The Atlas Mountains

 

For the first time in as many years The Legendary Moonflowers reformed for a one-nighter at Bristols lovely Cube Microplex Cinema. The auspicious date being the 11th of november 2011.

A bolstered lineup struggled through 2 hours of solid performance whilst singer Sean gave a conceptual award ceremony between the songs – many of which had never been heard before by surprised diehard fans (especially the slow tunes which seemed to go on for about 100 years). After an hour (of the by now bare-chested) crowd chanting “Get Higher” the band acquiesced and did storming versions of that, Tighten Up and um… some of their other smash-hits from the 90s.
The emotionally windswept night was garnished with a blazing rendition of John Lennons Imagine, the entire audience on their feet and singing the chorus “..and the world will be as One One One One One One” – it’s the date you see.

More fun to be had in 2012 from the lads who are BACK

 


OUT TO SPACE – a compilation for 2012

here a press release:
The band were famous in the 1990s for their psychedelic, sometimes naked shows and were beloved by their cult following. They also managed 5 albums before they dissapeared in rural france in the late ’90s which have stood the test of time where many have fallen by the wayside.

These albums are available digitally for the first time this year on Disco-Ordination records. And the band are releasing two compilation CDs this year:
Having Fun With The Moonflowers – contains 12 their favourite hits and party tunes. Available from July 18. A great summer compilation.

Out to Space – perhaps a more Autumnal offering features 12 of their spacier and more cosmic sides. Available from 1st September. Here’s the track-list:

1 There We Will Find the Sun
2 Shake It Together
3 Connotation Vibration
4 Colours and Sounds
5 The Winkstress
6 Planet Dodo
7 Too Much Love
8 Goldmine
9 Dreamlovers
10 Morning Pipe
11 Jupiter
12 The River Is Flowing

The Moonflowers reconvened on the 11/11/11 (ending the show with a triumphant version of John Lennons Imagine “and the world will be as one, one, one ,one ,one, one. One”). The band had such fun they decided to do it again this year. Let the fun continue!
