0800-MOSHI-MOSHI is a digital-only Moshi Moshi Records imprint for showcasing fresh talent. Initially set up as a means to share work by musicians made during lockdown the format proved to be an excellent way to get music out quickly, without many of the limitations imposed by a more traditional label set-up. It reminded us of the heady days of the Moshi Moshi Singles Club and so, in the same spirit, we decided to make it a vehicle for developing artists.
0800-MOSHI-MOSHI single releases lead to a set of EPs – Speedboat, Vanity Fairy, Nu Garcon and all cats are beautiful all released their debuts this year – and after playing a triumphant showcase gig at the Waiting Room in London earlier this autumn the bands are ready to bring their music to live audiences around the UK. The first 0800-MOSHI-MOSHI tour starts in January next year!
