The Hillbilly Moon Explosion 'Raw Deal' LP and CD
· A viral and vinyl hit single!
· A London Olympics opening event!
· More UK gigs, from sublime to anarchic!
· Retrospective compilation LP and CD to coincide.
Hillbilly Moon Explosion’s wide appeal is best demonstrated in that uniquely they are to play both the Jazz Café and the hardcore Rebellion Punk Festival in the same week. And just prior to those dates, there’s the little matter of representing Switzerland at their London Olympics opening event…
The UK visit is on the back of their viral and vinyl hit ‘My Love For Evermore’. The video has over 1,000,000 Youtube views and the 7” single is nearly out of its sixth pressing. The 50’s noir, murder ballad duet with Demented Are Go’s Sparky Phillips is from their fourth album Buy Beg Or Steal, issued last year on Goldtop Recordings.
Now a retro-spective ‘Raw Deal’ collating highlights from their first three albums is to be released in the UK on vinyl LP and CD to coincide with the dates. Tracks include ‘Johnny Are You Gay?’, ‘Chick Habit’, and ‘Maniac Lover’, the video for which captured some interesting audience participation in a tiny Swiss club.
Hillbilly Moon Explosion are a revered Anglo-Swiss-Italian outfit based in Zurich. Fronted by English exile slap-bassist and vocalist Oliver Baroni and Italian/ Swiss songstress Emanuela Hutter, immaculately backed by English guitarist Duncan James and Swiss drummer Luke ‘The Puke’ Weyerman, they unashamedly celebrate their retro rock and pop roots.
