To celebrate International Women’s Day, The Moonlandingz have teamed up with their friend and collaborator, actor, Maxine Peake to do a re-work of their fan favourite track ‘The Man in Me Lyfe’, which they have re-named ‘The Woman in me Lyfe (The Gender balance De-Mix)’.
The group who actively invited female fronted artists to support them on their forthcoming UK tour in protest of what they call “Sausage fest live bills and arcane views towards female musicians and artists” did the rework a few weeks back.
The Moonlandingz songwriter and founder, Adrian Flanagan said: “My musical partner Dean Honer and I popped over to Maxine’s house over in Salford a few weeks back and got her to holler a few phrases in to a tape machine whilst she did the hula hoop around her living room.
“We then did some audio taxidermy on the original track and Voila, we now have gender balance…We did it for no other reasons than as a little fun and to warm your hearts!!”
