MUSICIAN manager and producer for Space, Shack, Seven Seals, Ivan Campo, My Amiga and Circlesound, Yorkie has been responsible for some of the most interesting sounds to come out of the city in recent years.

Now his band Moongoose will be performing a special multimedia show at the Odeon cinema, Liverpool One, on July 2. Their music draws from a great lineage of instrumental and cinematic music: from the sounds of early John Barry, to Ennio Morricone, John Carpenter and Jerry Goldsmith.

"There used to be a place for instrumental music in popular music, and we are re-asserting that place," says Yorkie.

With band member Mark Jordan at the helm of the visuals, they have created a wondrous, other worldly experience.

"It makes perfect sense to us, as we grew up loving the cinema, and have been captivated by its essence ever since," adds Yorkie.

"As schoolboys, myself and Mark used to be completely into the 70's science fiction films such as Planet Of The Apes, Logan's Run, The illustrated Man - the list was endless.

"For this show people can expect to see Moongoose how it was always meant to be.

"Standard rock venues are quite frustrating for us, as the visuals are supposed to be upfront: more like our singer or frontman.

"Usually they end up placed behind us and form, essentially, a moving backdrop.

"At the Odeon, they will take pride of place above us in all their high definition glory."

At the show they will be playing most of their new album - Organic Technology: Reaction Music 2, as well as a selection of tracks on the previous EP.

There will also be a set from Dave Jackson & The Cathedral Mountaineers.
