Band page created in 2007.
The Moths! the exhilarating brain-child of west-London song writing duo James Fox (lyrics, lead vocals) and Dave Lightfoot (guitars, music) who, with help from producer Jon Vick, started writing and recording songs together in a bedroom studio in August 2006
Drawing comparisons with the Human League, Wire, the Buzzcocks and early Adam and the Ants, the Moths! make poetic indie, new wave, post-punk pop with the emphasis on clever lyrics and instantly memorable guitar riffs
Their first single 'Games' was released as a triple A-side (with 'Wild Birds' and 'Valentine') by cult indie label Fandango. It was hailed by ARTROCKER and received critical acclaim from NME, as well as gaining extensive radio support from Radio One (Zane Lowe) and XFM. It was also named single of the week by Steve Lamacq and the band were invited to record live sessions with John Kennedy (XFM) and Marc Riley (BBC 6 music)
The Moths! spent most of 2007 touring the UK, supporting bands including Foals, Good Shoes and the 1990s, recording new demos and turning themselves into one of the most exciting live bands in the country
- Update! The Moths disbanded at the end of 2007.
Another band called The Moths are now known as Astrophagus.
