Moggs MotelMarch 2024 - An update from Mr. Mogg...
Well hello playmates. Time for a ramble...
The album Moggs Motel shall be unleashed on September 6th, which seems an age away. However the motel staff are making a movie in April at a secret location... so shapes must be rehearsed and hats starched. Talking of movies if you get the chance have a gander at one great B movie called Giant Killer Ants. It’s a Band Movie you might like, from 2017. The guitarist has Pete Way's pants on and it has Sydney Sweeney appearing in it. Wonderful silly stuff. If you're a B movie fan you’ll love it, which reminds me, I must check out Attack Of The Killer Donuts.
So anyway, here’s the Motel track listing:
Apple Pie • Sunny Side Of Heaven • Face Of An Angel • I Thought I Knew You • The Princess Bride • Other People's Lives • Tinker Tailor • Weather • Harry's Place • The Wrong House • Shane • Storyville
And just for the record I’m singing, Neil (Carter) is on guitar, keys, vocals, flute, washboard and anything else he can lay his hands on, the little devil. Our Tony (Newton) plays the bass, guitar, and mixing desk, Joe (Lazarus) is on all things percussion, and Mr Tommy Gentry is on guitars.
The Motel pool has been finished I have placed a lovely bar at one end. Now we have to name it. I was thinking The Way Out (that's a bit naff though) or Tonka Town (a bit better). Any suggestions gratefully received.
Have yourselves a smashing summer and maybe we could meet up in September for the launch.
Tally Ho, and Happy Trails.

2nd September 2022 - Phil Mogg suffers heart attack. Farewell tour in October 2022 cancelled ahead of schedule

Bad news: a few days ago, frontman Phil Mogg suffered a heart attack. The British singer extraordinaire has already undergone surgery. On Thursday September 1st, 2022 – after having performed several detailed examinations in the past days – the doctors pronounced a strict performance ban for Phil until further notice. This is why the entire ‘Last Orders’ farewell tour, which was supposed to lead across Europe from October 15 to 29, 2022 before ending in Athens, had to be cancelled.

If and when the tour or – at the very least – individual shows can be made up for, is currently completely unclear and will depend on Phil`s recovery, among other things. His rehabilitation therapy will be starting in about six weeks. According to the doctors, it is not yet possible to give any concrete statements about the duration and scope of the treatment.

For the time being, the last UFO show took place on July 16, 2022, at the ‘Lieder Am See’ festival (near Nuremberg). Originally, band members Phil Mogg, Vinnie Moore (guitar), Andy Parker (drums), Neil Carter (keyboard/guitar) and Rob De Luca (bass) were planning on starting rehearsals in a few days for the final concerts in their more than 50-year UFO career.
