BIG AND EXCITING NEWS!
Legendary David Bowie producer Ken Scott will produce The Moog's new album! Ken Scott produced some of Bowie's best records including "Ziggy Stardust", "Hunky Dory" and "Aladdin Sane".
He engineered the Beatles' "White Album" and also worked with Pink Floyd, Duran Duran, Lou Reed, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Elton John and Missing Persons, among others.
We will be in Seattle with Ken in March where recording sessions for the album will start. We plan to do 10 new songs, eat lots of junk food, sleep very little, and finally get a chance to ask Ken that very important question: "which one's Pink?"!
Keep checking this page and Facebook for the latest news, including video updates from the recording studio!

Great result for The Moog on the German college charts!
The end of year chart of the German college and university radio stations has been compiled and we are very to announce that Razzmatazz Orfeum is at number 33 on this chart. This place means that we are higher than the likes of Weezer, Manic Street Preachers, Mando Diao, The National or Beach House.
The list is being complied by the biweekly votes of all university and college stations who send their favourite artists and albums every second week.
The 2nd album of The Moog has been released in Germany in the summer of 2010 and the local fans as well as the college and university radio stations embraced the record.
