Goon Moon is an American rock band composed of Jeordie White (also known as Twiggy Ramirez) and Chris Goss. The band released the mini-LP I Got a Brand New Egg Layin' Machine in 2005 and have since recorded a full-length album, Licker's Last Leg,[1] which was released on May 8, 2007. The album features cameos from longtime Goss collaborators Josh Homme and Josh Freese,[2] as well as desert rock mainstay Dave Catching. Although Goss and White continue to work on other projects, they have both alluded to the possibility of future Goon Moon recordings on Twitter.[3][4]

History[edit]

Shortly after White's 2002 departure from Marilyn Manson, Josh Homme introduced White and Goss, who were longtime fans of each other's work.[5] In 2005, they released a first sampling of their collaborative effort with I Got A Brand New Egg Layin' Machine on Suicide Squeeze Records. The mini-LP offered a collection of ten tracks ranging in style from psychedelia to folk-inspired ballads. White describes Goon Moon's eclectic "anything goes" sound as an opportunity to "explore different options, musically".[6] Experimentation within and across conventional genres carried over to Goon Moon's debut full-length LP on Ipecac Records, Licker's Last Leg,[7] which features a cover of the Bee Gees song "Every Christian Lion Hearted Man Will Show You."

Goon Moon's guest artists and collaborators have included: Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, The Vandals, Devo, Weezer), Fred Sablan (Marilyn Manson), Zach Hill (Hella, Death Grips), Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal), Whitey Kirst (Iggy Pop), and Pete Perdichizzi (The Flys).
