Moondogg

Moondogg was formed in the summer of 1994. Returning from a couple of years in the Arizona desert, Elizabeth Westwood (singer with British pop group Westworld) and Derwood Andrews (guitarist from punk band Generation X and founder of Empire and Westworld) came back to London and started working with Martin Lee Stephenson in his Jungelist studios around Hoxton E.London.

The first album was complete by the end of ’94 but didn’t see the light of day until June 1996. Nobody new what it was, what category it fitted into, how to promote it, they liked it but didn’t know quite what to do with it. It was so ahead of it’s time that even some 15 years later it still sounds fresh and like it could be released next year. 'Fat Lot Of Good' received high praise in the British press and was hailed as a Drum'n'Bass masterpiece. The album was released on Better records in the UK and Avex in Japan.

It wasn't until 2001 that the follow up 'God's Wallop' was released on experimental British label D.O.R. God’s Wallop was already complete and mastered before ‘Fat Lot of Good’ was released. The group had a wait of six years before it was finally put out…
A third album 'All The Love In The World' was released by their own label ‘RubberCheese Music’ in 2004, ten years after the group formed.

Moondogg are still largely unknown, which considering the originality of their sound and their appearances in movie soundtracks such as ‘S.L.C.Punk’ and ‘Better than Chocolate’ is an unintentional stroke of genius. Their time will come… Thy will be done… on Moon as it is in heaven.
