Shadoks Music present a reissue of Moonlight's The Edge (Modern Dance In The Twilight Zone), originally released in 1978. All the members of Moonlight came from the same town of Turku, located in the south west of Finland. They met each other at school in the mid '70s. Their ambition was more to focus on making their own music and sing in English which was not the common in Finland at the time. Kim Trapp and Anders (Andy) Winter were the actual composers and Björn (Bob) Wasenius made the lyrics. Paul Kanerva helped out with both from time-to-time. Their musical influences were Steely Dan, Procol Harum, Santana, Pink Floyd, along with Ian Dury and Blondie. They had a large scale of music they liked and listened to, playing music by Uriah Heep and Led Zeppelin before composing their own pieces. Their music was, as a result of a large scale of interest, some kind of mixture of psychedelic/progressive rock and melodic softer music. Moonlight was active between mid '70s and 1979. They got a record deal in Finland with Top Hits and released this album in 1978. For fans of Finnish bands such as Hamlet, Wigwam, Nimbus and Session. Originals are very rare. Personnel: Kim Trapp - keyboards (Hammond, Leslie, Korg, Minimoog); Björn (Bob) Wasenius - drums, vocals. Paul Kanerva - bass; Anders (Andy) Winter - guitar, vocals. Comes in a heavy sleeve, as 180 gram vinyl and with a two-page insert. Edition of 400 (numbered).
