Moondog One was a Manchester-based rock band. Members included former Oasis rhythm guitarist Paul Arthurs, Johnny Evans of Buffalo 66 as well as Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke of The Smiths.

The band's name is said to be based on an early name used by The Beatles - "Johnny and the Moondogs". The band did not become famous. A series of demo tracks were recorded in guitarist Bonehead's home studio and produced by Paul 'Spooner' Heywood (Bonehead's guitar technician during his Oasis years). The demos were also said to feature contributions from former The Stone Roses guitarist and member of Ian Brown's band Aziz Ibrahim, with backing vocals by Rowetta of Happy Mondays fame.
