Moonbabies are the Zeitgeist award winner for the Jan-Feb issue of the Scottish Zeitgeist ´zine Hooray! Here's the review, everybody:
MOONBABIES - Air>>>Moon>>>Stereo EP (Moonkrack / Duckweed)
Tracks; 1. Have You Ever Said Goodbye 2. A Brand New Coat 3. Starlet 4. Slowmono

There is nothing finer than a 7" single. To me it is the ultimate art form. And here's a perfect example. Music that takes on an ethereal dynamic all of its own. You can almost touch it. Across 4 tracks the Moonbabies stake their claim to being one of that select band of artists who salve your soul and touch you in the innermost recesses of your mind. There's hints of psychedelia, a smidgin of Love, part Moby Grape, Belle & Sebastian and even Pooka. Acoustic without ever being twee this is the Zeitgeist award winner for February 2000. One listen to "Have You Ever..." and you'll know why.

And for last the moonbabies debut album will soon be out. The band has just finished putting together the CD which will be out in the later part of April. More indepth details about this recording will be added to the news page in a couple of weeks.
21- 2 - 2000 A new page with live reviews has been added to the moonbabies web-site. The page will in the future also contain information about upcomming Liveconcerts, Videoclips and live pictures. Go and check it out.

The Gig at KB: Even if everything that possibly could go wrong with the electric guitars on stage really did go wrong, the gig turned out really great. Moonbabies played about a 25 minute gig and the public response was good. Got quite good reviews in the Swedish newspapers. We'll soon put out some quotes from those reviews, plus we'll probably feature a livesong from that concert as the next week's Clip of the week.
