Listen to an audience reaction:
Luna Geckos formed last summer, following a chance meeting as two parents picking up their kids after school one day. Drawn together out of curiosity and willingness to explore new musical territories, an initial jam was arranged. The result was instant good musical chemistry and a new sound adventure began!
Luna Geckos weave sounds of somewhere Eastern European meeting Middle-eastern meets Moroccan Celts!!! Fun, compelling, mysterious & exciting stuff!!
With a handful of appearances at The Wheatsheaf, The Anchor Inn and The Bullingdon Arms; a BBC Oxford Radio interview and broadcast; and having recorded, mixed and mastered a mini album of their work themselves. Luna Geckos are now poised to take this new music and venture further afield.
In May 2015, Luna Geckos completed their debut album, “Slowlier”. Featuring guest musicians: Fyfe Dangerfield, Martin Furey, Lydia Kavina and Julia Meijer, the whole recording, mixing and mastering process was done by themselves at their own Squeeze Studio and Squash House between December and April. Artwork, photography and type setting was then also completed by Ben and Greig, finishing off with original and unique “Four Folds, One Tuck” packaging by Ben. Quite deliberately and out of sheer enjoyment, the whole process from writing through to the end product has been crafted and created with a strong DIY ethic. The result, a perfectly true and honest presentation of the Luna Geckos.
