Monoganon are a progressive Galsgow based quartet who are led by Swedish singer-songwriter and guitarist John B McKenna. They recently signed to Fence Records with whom they have made past guest appearances at many of the Fence Collective bashes such as Home Game, Eye O’ the Dug, and Hallowe’en parties. The follow-up to their fuzz folk debut offering ‘Songs To Swim To’ will be followed by F A M I L Y which is scheduled for release on Fence Records in autumn 2013. It “promises to invite mass wonderment with its curious and captivating concoction of psych-folk, art-pop and slacker rock.”
Here’s a taster with their ‘Quick Crescent Moon’ video followed by an interview:
Monoganon are the first act to be officially announced as playing Gnomegame – John will be opening the Saturday afternoon with an acoustic set.
The full band will be performing at our Fence Records showcase at the West End Festival, on Sunday June 9th at the Oran Mor (more details here). Monoganon will also be supporting The Pictish Trail at his Edinburgh Festival show at The Liquid Rooms on Saturday 24th August (more details here).
