The Hillbilly Moon Explosion are a pan-European rock'n'roll band with much flair and
a fast growing fan-base. They're fronted by the Italian-Swiss songstress Emanuela Hutter and
English exile singer and slap bassist Oliver Baroni, ably backed by English guitarist Duncan
James and Swiss drummer Luke "The Puke" Weyermann.
Originating from the rockabilly scene of their adopted home town Zurich, they declined the
invitation to participate in the 'European Song Contest' for Switzerland. THE HILLBILLY
MOON EXPLOSION became famous with their hit 'Johnny Are You Gay?' and preferred to
tour Europe, appear on TV and support Jeff Beck on his European tour.
WITH MONSTERS AND GODS' is the band's fourth studio album; a cocktail of loud
Rockabilly, pure Rock'n'Roll, tattooed Rhythm & Blues & schizophrenic 50's Blues.
Sometimes Zurich is not only bourgeois & expensive, but also a small New Orleans! Shut up
and listen. Our advice with 'WITH MONSTERS AND GODS': Let's buy some booze, go
downtown and get tattoos . . .
