The Moonlandingz celebrated debut LP at Rough Trade with Uni (pics)

Moonlandingz, the collaborative project between Lias of Fat White Family and Eccentronic Research Council, celebrated the release of their debut album, Interplanetary Class Classics, on Thursday, May 11 at Rough Trade. Where FWF are wallowing in the gutter, Moonlandingz prefer to dance in it, and at times they’re like the scuzzy cousins of Black Grape. None of the album’s many guest stars made an appearance but Charlotte Kemp Muhl of opening act Uni (and Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) filled in for Slow Club’s Rebecca Taylor on the duet “The Strangle of Anna.” While things didn’t get as crazy as your average FWF show, it was still fairly nuts, with an audience member near the front deciding to throw a big bag of glitter onto the rest of the crowd, which stuck to us as Lias had just recently sprayed the audience with beer. Star of the night for me, though, was Mairead O’Connor who had an air of utter disdain while laying down guitar riffs. Pictures from the whole night are in the gallery above.

This was The Moonlandingz’s only U.S. show, apart from a list-minute slot opening for Black Lips at Webster Hall a few days before.
