The quintessential lala-looloo-dub-rub-pubic hoopla regularly accompanying this platter runs as follows:
A dude of southern Norwegian origin once said this: "Anyone can make a
piece of art, but disco is for gods". Whether you find any truth in that
or not, one thing is for sure, the new single by the printer-galactic
troopers of Mungol is one hell of a ride through the sonic wonders of
discofied art involving one dude`s rather merciless meeting with the
It only happens occasionally, but it DOES happen. You`ve probably heard
rumors, or read about it somewhere. Maybe it even happened to YOU? With
"Moon Jocks n Prog Rocks", Mungolian Jetset have put it - literally - on
the record: abductions by beatmongering disco aliens with prog-rock
fetishes are on the rise, sometimes with hilariously fatal consequences,
such as this tale of one unfortunate individual`s meeting with the more
funky forces of the Cosmos. Well, the story is as hilarious as it is
epic, and musically is one of the more grandiose sounding pieces of
dance music that will be released this year.
This is Mungolian Jetset`s rather gloriously zonked-out tribute to every

basslines, holistic fanfares, ethereal synths, alien voices, earthly vocals, chunky brass, and enough drum breakdowns to make The Muppets'
Animal blush, all brought to you in disco friendly full-on 13 minutes.
The second track on this vinyl, the satellite to "Moon Jocks n Prog
Rocks", is "Moonstruck". Many Mungolian scientists have long
hypothesized that this orbiting satellite was original part of the "Moon
Jocks" cycle, while other says it is simply an independent planetoid
that fell into the orbit when Babylonia Jones did her monthly twang.
Whatever the truth is, we do know that this track contains dense
deposits of prog ore (as in prog whore), alongside substantial amounts
of groovinium and funketonium and significant amounts of naturally
occurring dub alloys. A particularly lecherous listener has described
the track as "just plain wet, where`s the umbrella?" which somewhat goes
along with one of the Mungolian`s music-makers rather demystifying
comments: "Nah - it`s just us pretending that we`re in Weather Report or
some fusion-ilk like that"
