Things To Do In Leicester (Live Music / 11th June)...

Moon Duo (feat. Ripley Johnson of Wooden Shjips) at The Musician
plus The Roz Bruce Infusion and Angela Armstrong (DJ Set)

Moon Duo is the tandem of Eric “Ripley” Johnson (guitarist/vocalist for Wooden Shjips) and Sanae Yamada. Rather than representing a departure from the hazy, drug-addled psychedelia of Wooden Shjips, Moon Duo functions as a natural creative extension for Johnson. Whereas the Shjips are strongly rooted in a late-60s/early-70s, distinctly Californian aesthetic of Jefferson Airplane and The Doors, Moon Duo is a more geographically, if not temporally, adventurous project. Escape, the band’s first record for Woodsist, finds Johnson reveling in the murky pop stylings of Suicide, the motorik rhythm of Neu!, and the ecstatic clatter of The Velvet Underground.
