Moonshot - Worlds Of Yesterday: A Moonshot Retrospective 1971-1992

SKU 23-OSS001
“Curated and annotated by Tim Bowness, Worlds Of Yesterday (1971-1992) is the first official compilation of legendary Warringtonian Prog Rockers Moonshot since 1979’s Shot Hits. From the Crimson-esque grandeur of The Sweetest Bitter Pill to the pastoral beauty of Before That Before, via the warped creativity of Lost In The Ghost Light and engaging Pop of Stupid Things That Mean The World, the album ably demonstrates that while Moonshot may not have reached the commercial heights of celebrated peers such as Genesis, Pink Floyd, or Yes, they were arguably one of the best of the chasing pack and fully deserve to be named alongside the likes of Gentle Giant, Camel, Greenslade, The Yorkshire Parkin Experiment, PFM, Prawn, Ange and others.”

Except...none of the above is true. This is an album by Tim Bowness, a homage to progressive rock, delivered in the same way that the Dukes Of Stratosfear were a homage to 60s psychedelia!

Really love this! Unafraid to use old styles of music,...this has a lot more fun with the lyrics than the versions on "Lost in The Ghost Light". Maybe Moonshot should go on making albums? I mean what about other "lost" tapes that could be "found"? I think this may be a good way for bands to cut loose and do what they feel like playing ,and not worry about trying to be "modern". Let's see more "imaginary bands" making throwback music that hits all the right buttons.
