"...really beautiful songs...like the lost Jayhawks album." JOHN STIRRATT, WILCO
"...an absolutely brilliant band..." JIM HAWKINS, BBC RADIO
"Editor's Pick" CDBABY
With their debut album "Thirty Three & A Third", Additional Moog have been picking up inevitable comparisons to the likes of Wilco, Gram Parsons and the Jayhawks.
At the same time they combine their sound with a 60s pop song sensibility evoking Ray Davies, Paul Simon and mid-era Beatles. It's handy they can also rock out a la Neil and Crazy Horse.
Additional Moog is based in Shropshire, UK.
The band formed out of what was originally a studio project. James recorded solo on an 8 track with and released the songs on the internet, racking up 30 thousand downloads on mp3.com in just eighteen months.
Along the way there was also the semi-legendary tale of the aborted album with Pavement's Bob Nastanovich.
The project didn't become a fully realised live band until 2004 when James hooked up with workmate and Abba fan Ian on drums. The band made their live debut supporting K.T. Tunstall.
It wasn't long before the band attracted interest from the U.S. and opted to release their first single "Holy Jukebox" on U.S. label Lost Cat Records. The label also released "Lost Engines" - a now deleted compilation of the mp3.com demos.
The line-up was soon augmented by Mark, a guitarist with a striking resemblance to Danny DeVito.
In September 2006, Additional Moog made their first trip to the States, playing a series of successful shows around Austin, Texas including a live afternoon session for KUT Radio.
Debut album "Thirty Three And A Third" was released May 2007 on Fight This Generation! Records.
Additional Moog went into cryogenic state in 2009.
James has a new band, Hall of Ghosts (www.hallofghosts.com, twitter /hallofghosts) with a debut album due early 2012.
