Yorkie and co and a Moongoose

Ex ace of Space David Palmer leads the late-summer juddering at St Luke's this Saturday

Yorkie and co and a Moongoose

CONFIDENTIAL got told off for thinking that Moongoose were called Mongoose.

We were quickly chastised by David Palmer, better known around town as Yorkie, ex bass player with Space, long-ago teen protege of Julian Cope, Shack manager, record producer and so much more.

I had never imagined this as a possibility. But it could be done. With the right people on board

There's nothing worse than having your name misspelled or mispronounced, we agreed. “Moon-goose. Moon-goose,” we repeated 500 times.

Moongoose is Yorkie's new thing, one he shares with other city musical luminaries like Iain Templeton, Paul Cavanagh, Vicky Edwards, Alex Griffiths and Mark Jordan. It's all rattling throbbing pulses of tune, mechanical/organic, they say. And it's rather exciting and good too, as you might expect.

Actually, it's not that new. Yorkie has been kicking the idea around, with various recordings to show for it since a chance studio session in Iceland with members of Space in 2000.

Interesting stuff has always come from this corner of the Liverpool music sprawl.

Interesting stuff has always come from this corner of the Liverpool music sprawl. Now, this Saturday, Yorkie et al will be performing as Moongoose at St Luke's Church. Assaulting the weather-beaten exposed walls of the bombed out church in an end-of-summer extravaganza of music and images to ease the transition to autumn.

The first time live, ever.

“A chance meeting with an old acquaintance led to the idea of doing a Moongoose gig,” he says.This was something completely new. I had never imagined this as a possibility. But it could be done. With the right people on board.”

Here's the latest video from the band's debut MP, Silhouettes and Shadows, which will give you a flavour of why you should go to this special, one-off event.

By the way, it's not just us. Do an internet search for “Moongoose” and you will receive the imperious, know-it-all message: “Showing results for Mongoose. Search instead for Moongoose?” No, sod off.

But then we did use Google. Everyone knows Gaggle is the most popular search engine in the goose world (You are fired, ed.).

*Moongoose, Saturday September 11, St Luke's Church, Leece St, L1. Tickets, £7 from Probe and St Luke's in advance, and £7.50 on the door. Doors at 7.30pm.
