Project Moonbase - DJ Bongoboy & MC Zirconium - Futurologists, antiquarians and explorers in the outer realms of the music multiverse

Project Moonbase is filled with music to surprise, delight and occasionally horrify you. Made by someone who really cares (and his prisoner). We bring you music you’ve never heard before that will put a smile on your face, open your third eye and make you dance. We love space age bachelor pad music, library music, charity shop cheese, hauntology, ping pong stereo, moog music, sitar-driven psychedelia, lounge, the retro-futuristic, contemporary electronica, soundtrack music, radiophonics, euro-po...

This week we celebrate the life and work of one of Britain's greatest big band leaders, soundtrack composers, library music composers and time/mind-bending musicians, Basil Kirchin. Hull City of Culture 2017 recently put on a weekend of the great man's music, which DJ Bongoboy was lucky enough to attend. Inspired by that, we've put our own tribute together. There's music from every part of Basil's life in music, as well as tracks by bands who have been inspired by him.
We've neglected the world of geometry for far too long and so this week we thought it time we brought you the latest developments in shapes. Most of the tracks on the show are about specific polygons and, because we like to order the world around us, the tracks about polygons are played with an increasing number of sides. We leave it to you, dear listener, to predict the upper limit to which we soar. WARNING: An assertion in the first part of this show could bring the world of mathematics...

Following on from our interview with Jean-Jacques Perrey and Dana Countryman earlier in the year, we caught up with these two fine gentlemen again towards the end of 2008 to talk about the second album they made together, Destination Space. The interview was split over two shows and broadcast on a local radio station. Until now these shows have not been available as podcast. But that's all changed now.

In 2008, Jean-Jacques Perrey and his musical partner Dana Countryman appeared at the first AV Festival, which took place at the Sage, Gateshead in March of that year. In the afternoon, Jean-Jacques presented a lecture talking about his life of music-making, where he also gave a demonstration of how to make a tape loop. Amongst many others in the audience for that talk were James Cargill and Trish Keenan from Broadcast and Dick Mills from the Radiophonic Workshop (who DJ Bongoboy ended up...

Patron saint of the show, Jean-Jacques Perrey, recently moved on from this planet to spend eternity with the stars. His music was a perfect example of all the things we love at PMB: humour, virtuosity, ping-pong stereo, the Moog synthesizer, tape loops, farmyard animals and even the electric sitar. This is our tribute to the great man - and such was the quality and quantity of his output that we've managed to put together a whole show of his music without playing a single track we've played on...

After the world's longest first Season (of 273 shows no less!), we thought it time to regroup and recalibrate. So, feeling reinvigorated after a few weeks working out in the mind gym, we present the first show in Season 2! There's no particular theme for this week's show. Instead it's a selection of some of our favourite new (and old) tracks which we've uncovered over the last few months.

As if we didn't have enough series on the go at the moment, we've taken the foolhardy decision to kick off another one, this collection all about personal pronouns. That's "he" and "she" to you and me. But before straying into the second or third person, we thought it best to start with a show all about me, me, me.

We're back to the fake 80s for this week's show, dear listener, with our first concept album: a whole show about driving, at night, in a Delorean. We have a fist-pumping selection of retrowave and synthwave from around the globe, as well as a special late night cruise to Shrewsbury. There's also a track from the latest edition in the Bedroom Cassette Masters series, an edition which features an almost subliminal appearance from none other than our very own Orb (praise it).

The fruiting seed for this idea was the arrival of a lovely new album on Ghost Box by exciting new pop duo Hintermass (aka Jon Brooks and Tim Felton) which has the sound of folk music from the future. In addition to that, we also have some Norwegians sounding Scottish, some TV advert music from Germany, some Greek philosophy by way of Taiwan and a...

We return from our recent hiatus with an admittedly somewhat deranged chimera of a show for you, dear listener. This is two themes for the price of one as we bring you a show about both country music and the current Easter festivities. We have country Moog x 2, Japanese banjo enhancements, chiptune cake music, two bunny rabbits and some extremely futuristic folk music from Pakistan.

It's time to catch up with some new releases and reissues on the show this week. We have a couple of new reissues from Dutton Vocalion, including a version of show favorite Caravan which we've inexplicably neglected up until now. There are a couple of tracks which could be fake 80s but sound more like fake 90s filtered through the fake 70s. There's also a double bill from Japan and we close the show with a couple of cornerstones/pillars of the Moonbase musical universe.

This week we celebrate the work of the construction industry, with a show all about bricks and mortar. We have humoristic music from Russia, library music simultaneously from France and Belgium, Japanese rap from London, twinkly electronics from Canada and possibly the first ever mash-up of Fingerbobs and Deodato.

This week we take a good look behind the mask, with a selection of music which isn't quite what it appears to be on first listen. We have Frenchmen pretending to be Japanese, a Japanese man pretending that Duke Ellington was also Japanese, an Irishman pretending to be Hawaiian, the sound of exotic Hackney and a duo pretending it's still the 1980s (#callback). WARNING: Surprisingly, no Germans.

It's time to take another trip back to the imaginary 80s with, ironically, some of the newest music we've ever played on the show.

We return to our journey through the rainbow this week, dear listener, with an all-blue edition of the show. But rest assured that, while the theme might be blue, the music itself is very much up-beat. We have some French easy-disco, home-made music boxes, a Welsh TV theme tune, The Herb, steel drums and plenty plenty Moog synthesizer. WARNING: Dangerously high levels of harpsichord.

We kick the new year off by blasting away the cobwebs with some splendid reissues and new releases. We've got French space disco, a lost retro-futuristic relic from 1977, British exotica, Italian space-themed cinematic funk, something from Manchester's answer to Sun Ra and we close with a meditative piece from Tim Gane's current band ahead of their imminient triple-LP release - and there's plenty more besides too.

Continuing on our journey through The Rainbow Collection, we reach that most verdant of colours, green. You'll hear slightly creepy library music from the UK and France, a brand new release from Ghost Bost and no less than four German artistes, dear listener, not to mention the First Lady of the Hammond.

This week we explore the sunny uplands of our journey through the rainbow, dear listener, as we reach a colour associated variously with amusement, harmony and, er, envy, namely yellow. We have some 60s J-pop, a German pretending to be a Latin American pretending to be Japanese, a song-poem, some exotic Moog and the drifting stereo sounds of Werner Müller.

We take a break from our trip through the colours of the rainbow this week, dear listener, with a trip around (some of) the capitals of the world. We hope it proves to be as much of a journey of discovery as it was for us as we share some very heart-felt and often quite puzzling celebrations of some of the world's great cities. Special thanks are due to our Canadian ambassador for finding a great 80s tribute to her very own capital city.

Hot on the heels of last week's red show comes the next colour in The Rainbow Collection, namely orange. We have a surprisingly high representation of French music this week, dear listener, in particular French musicians pretending to be from South America.  There's also beat poetry, exotica, 80s electronics and we close with a double bill of kawaii and classic Moog.

This week's show sees the beginning of a new series we are calling The Rainbow Collection with each show in the collection taking one colour as its theme. We start our journey at the lower end of the visible spectrum with a ruddy great show about the colour red. We have library music from the UK and France, an Italian double-bill and even some music from one of the ancient kingdoms of South America.
