Mooch biography
UK outfit MOOCH is the creative vehicle of composer and multi-instrumentalist Steve PALMER, who founded this project in 1992. His first two official productions were initially cassette only releases, namely "3001" and "Planetfall", and the former of these was picked up by Taste Records. Meanwhile PALMER had recorded another album, "Postvorta", which became his official debut when released in 1993. The CD version of "3001" followed in 1994, and "Starhenge" was next in 1995.

It would take four years for the next album under the MOOCH moniker to see the day, when "In Search of the Acid Metal Grille" was issued in 1999. A further six years would pass before the fifth MOOCH album appeared, the 2005 release "Flight of the Dub Voyager". Swift on the heels of this production "Gaiaspace" followed in 2006.

So far MOOCH had issued albums exploring music ranging from ambient, experimental synths influenced by the likes of Klaus SCHULZE to more regular space rock in the vein of OZRIC TENTACLES, HAWKWIND and PINK FLOYD, but in 2007 the output of this project took a left turn into more typical psychedelic territories with the release of the double concept CD "Dr Silbury's Liquid Brainstem Band". This musical conceptual journey continued in a trio of 60's albums released from 2008 and onwards - "1967", "1966" and "1968a".

In 2010, still on the Ambientlive label, MOOCH released the uncompromising "The Pagan Year", a double concept CD ranging from electronic rock, through full-on progressive to more ambient music. "Train Klang" and "Green Glow" followed, the former kosmische electronic music.

2012 saw the twentieth anniversary for the band, releasing the full length documentary on DVD entitled "Twenty Year Trip", but this was the last release on Ambientlive Records. In 2013 the "Stations of the Sun" album was released - folk/progressive music with hints of RENAISSANCE and MOSTLY AUTUMN. Another collaboration with ex-HAWKWIND chanteuse Bridget WISHART led to the "Beltane to Samhain EP", before the band's 25th album "Mrs Silbury's Delicious Mushroom Flavoured Biscuits" was released as a vinyl LP by the Greek label Cosmic Eye.

PALMER continues to stretch the boundaries of music with his genre-spinning band.
