Video of the Moment #163: The Moog

The Moog are an indie rock quintet from Budapest, Hungary. And yes, like their name suggests, their singer/keyboardist Tonyo Szabo plays a Moog. How they came upon the instrument: it was given to them by the good people of Moog Music, the folks who make those fancy synthesisers; they said the band could use their name as long as they always precede their name with ‘the’. (Apparently the band’s name is homage to a bar they frequented when they were younger. Bless.)

The band has the incredible distinction as being the first Hungarian band ever to be signed to an American label, so I really hope these guys do well. Enjoy this promo video for ‘When I See You’, the second single off their second album, ‘Razzmatazz Orfeum’; the video was filmed at the Bob Baker Puppet Theatre in Los Angeles and you’ll see lots of puppets, a clown, and the Big Bad Wolf. Plus – you guessed it – the Moog (the instrument) features prominently in it. Check it out.

The Moog’s second album, ‘Razzmatazz Orfeum’, was released on 21 July in America on MuSick Recordings and is available now.
