Day 25 of the 31 Days of May New Zealand Music Month via Bandcamp challenge is from an album I somehow missed a few years ago. Although I’d heard the name Full Moon Fiasco I’d never heard the music associated with the name. Inexplicable really…

Full Moon Fiasco is mostly from the imagination of Will Rattray of Thought Creature and is exactly like it is described on the wrapper: “Washed out Psychedelia From the Bottom of the Earth”

“Freedom Town” is from the album “Cosmic Palms” and the CD is on sale (at the bargain price of only $7.50) at Muzai Records right now.

[Postscript: Sources tell me this splendid album (it really is one of NZ’s lost/ forgotten psychedelic masterpieces) was recorded on Chris Knox’s old 4 track reel-to-reel recorder – the same one that many of the early Flying Nun Records recordings were made on.]
