God Is in the TV

The lyrics aren’t exactly always upbeat, but if Interplanetary Class Classics doesn’t make you want to at least throw some shapes, then there really is no hope for you. 2017 really is turning into a sterling year for stellar albums, and this is no exception.

AllMusic

Luckily for fans of ridiculous pop, they took it another step and made Interplanetary Class Classics, a wild work of twisted genius and more fun than rabies, that's for sure.

The Line of Best Fit

Their debut packs a far mightier punch than the output of almost any other contemporary group with whom they may share certain influences; not bad for a fictitious band, really.

Loud and Quiet

With as much regard for genre boundaries as the fourth wall, The Moonlandingz’ debut has shades of Brill Building balladry, The Glitter Band, Suicide, The Cramps and even nineties cult icons Earl Brutus.

The Moonlandingz track the grubbier, less glamorous fringes of pop on Interplanetary Class Classics, but do it in impeccable guttersnipe style.

‘Interplanetary Class Classics’ proves rock’n’roll is still alive and swaggering in the form of the solar system’s newest sensation The Moonlandingz.

An interesting debut that holds (at least in theory), all the elements to engage any fan of post-punk and psychedelic-rock seeking for catchy hooks and energetic punk antics - not without its due experimental edge, that is. The first few tracks show what an exciting band the Fat White Family and Eccentronic Research Council supergroup can be, as their best crossover between Suicide, Iggy Pop and The Flaming Lips start to unveil. Soon enough, though, things begin to lose flavour as fast as the ... read more

There is a lot of repetition in this song, where a verse is repeated over and over and over again. I get the feel that the band listened to a lot of fifties and sixties rock before trying to make their own attempt at their own album. If their live performances are anything like this, I would want to see them so find out how this translates live. I found this work to be fun and lively, and this may become a purchase.
