A collaboration with Moonlandingz

I can’t even believe this exists!!
Annihilate is the perfect word Sean! This is a wonderful screaming vocal performance by Yoko, assisting the Moonlandingz on their debut album, Interplanetary Class Classics. Sean Lennon (who also produced the album) is on drums– reminiscent RINGO, & also plays bass. What a great groove!!!
The track is a funky whirlwind propelled by Yoko’s otherworldly vocals, layered with a spacey echo. She tells us to, ‘Wake up! There is a segment of instrumentation that is reminiscent of her song ‘Approximately Infinite Universe’.
Yoko is WAILING and at the end she says,
‘Why didn’t you tell me it’s just a dream?’
She repeats this line into the stratosphere like the moans of Oz’ melting wicked witch ascending via cyclone up to the sky, and ends with a whisper of, ‘ahhhh’.
