The Moonlandingz may have started their life as a fictional band, but one spin of their 2017 album Interplanetary Class Classics shows they have more life coursing through their veins than 99.9% of all the "real" bands out there. When the Eccentronic Research Council needed to concoct a band for their 2015 album Johnny Rocket, Narcissist & Music Machine...I'm Your Biggest Fan, they called up Lias Saoudi and Saul Adamczewski of Fat White Family and together they came up with a sleazy, greasy glitter punk band.|
Like: Fat White Family, Tame Impala. The Horrors, The Flaming Lips
