If The Moonlandingz sometimes seem so ludicrous it feels like they’ve stepped from of the pages of a particularly surreal story, it’s because they have.

Interplanetary Class Classics smears Saoudi's nihilistic euphoria across throbbing new-wave and singalong Glitter Band boogie.
The album itself offered only further bewilderment. Interplanetary Class Classics’ opens up with Vessels, a punkish number driven by a big rumbling bassline. It rises up from the same primal roots as Fat White Family, all sleazy energy and depraved lyrics. At first it seems like The Moonlandingz could just be the Fat Whites under a new name and (yet another) lineup change. Even the psychedelic saxophone that drops in halfway through the song has popped up in their live shows before. And again, maybe it isn’t. The Moonlandingz seems less like a rock band descended from outer space and more like visitors from an alternate dimension, where reality is similar to ours but for a few uncanny differences. Cats chase dogs, rains falls up, and pop music is a hallucinogenic drug. To glimpse this inter-dimensional aberration is horror, but it’s impossible to turn away. Interplanetary Class Classics’ is out now.
