The Moog

Premiere: “Don’t Go” (The Ramones cover) MP3

Oct 14, 2009

Listen to this track

Budapest, Hungary's The Moog may have named their band after a utilitarian piece of analog equipment but they're much livelier than a synthesizer. At times, their brand of dance-punk harkens back to The Ramones' cretinous hop, so it seems natural that a fan favorite live cut is "Don't Go." The racuous ditty is currently only available to shrieking fans during live encores and the Japanese version of Moog's sophomore album, Razzmatazz Orfeum.

We're eager to debut the lively cut here in the States. Check out the rawk above. The group's been hopping around the European tour circuit all summer long. A U.S. tour is coming sometime next year. As the band's Myspace so boldy proclaims: "There is a Moog that never goes out." Also, check out the fivesome's theatrical music video for the crunchy Razzmatazz single, "When I See You."
