Project Moonbase in Wired Magazine
We’re rather delighted to report that we got a mention in the March 2014 edition of Wired magazine (the US edition) as part of a section by Questlove called How to Listen Now.
You’ll find us at the bottom of page 85, where we’re described as an “oddly specific” podcast specialising in sitar-driven psychedelia, 8-bit and other trips.
Thanks chaps.

PMB171: An Ill Wind
For the first time on Project Moonbase, we bring you the first part of a conceptual double album, the concept being wind. This arose largely because of two differing approaches taken by DJ Bongoboy and MC Zirconium to the subject, with the former taking a somewhat “Carry On” approach and the latter a more academic one. The end result was so many great pieces of music that we decided to split them across two shows.
So for this first part we bring you a hopefully chuckle and titter inducing selection of tunes, mostly from the more innocent 60s, where the topic of wind had less of a double entendre than it perhaps does now. On next week’s show we’ll be taking a more meteorological and geographical approach to the four winds.

The Left Arm of Buddha, Max Harris, Peter Reno & Barry Stoller, Monroeville Music Center, disrupt, Lasry-Baschet, Joe Davolaz, Setsuo Ohashi, Raymond Scott, The Bran Flakes, Francis Coppieters
It’s been a while since we took stock of some of the recent arrivals through the airlock up here at the Moonbase but they’ve been safely quarantined now so we are please to bring you delights such as:
The latest release from Belgian exoticats The Left Arm of Buddha, two selections from a terrific new collection of library spy music from Soul Jazz records, a remix of a very famous tune by Raymond Scott, some Japanese steel guitar, a new piece of chip-dub from Jahtari and also a new track by friend of the show, the Monroeville Music Center. It seems we can’t have Belgian exotica in a show without also hearing some Swedish exotica and so we’re delighted to find a fabulous piece of retro-futurism on the latest Wire Tapper CD by a sextet from Stockholm.
Listen now: Crosstalk
