Our version is as musically schizophrenic as the original. Incorporating Blues, Classical, Metal, Electro, Dance & African sections. It’s is as mad as the maddest madman in Madtown on Mad-Day. Electronics, gourds, marimbas, guitars, string sections, horns, flutes all fight for your attention but one instrument stands above them all.
John Lennon and his gang have a lot to answer for……
Howard Werth And The Moonbeams initiated me into the wondrous world of rockdom back in 1970-something after a 3 month stint in the Royal Engineers. They outgrew me fairly quickly and I moved on to become a Fabulous Poodle. Came up against Chucky Berry, Spizz, Freur, Underworld, Watusi Bros., Electric Bluebirds, Pump, Pink Flamingos, Snowy White, Worldwide Electric, Alexi Sayle, Mook, Rhatigan, Ronnie & The Rex, (to name but loads) along the way. Eventually settled down with wife and cat in sedate Surrey with a room full of musical gear, computers and various annoying bits of software. This is what happened. Listener beware.
