Several bands go by The Moon: 1) An American band formed 1967 2) A Swedish psychedelic rock band from the mid 90's featuring members from Qoph. 3) A Hungarian rock band formed 2003, http://www.themoon.hu 4) A German band, www.the-moon.de. 5) A Finnish band, name later changed to Mooncakes. 1) An American band formed 1967 -- Moon's first album is one of those undiscovered late-'60s psychedelic pop masterpieces which command a high price from LP collectors, it has since been released along with their second on the same CD by Rev-Ola in 2002. Moon Without Earth was produced by keyboard player/guitarist/vocalist Matthew Moore and drummer Larry Brown (ex-Sidewalk Productions sideman) at Continental Recorders — formerly on Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood, CA — where the band reportedly lived for a time. Moore — who wrote most of the material here — sings most of the lead vocals, while David Marks (ex-Beach Boys) provides lead guitar and sings background vocals. "Brother Lou's Love Colony" and "She's on My Mind" were written by Gary Montgomery and Jack Dalton, both members of Colours, who at the same time were recording their own 1968 self-titled debut album for Dot. These two groups are in fact quite similar stylistically in that they both were influenced by the Beatles and early Bee Gees' recordings of the same period, focusing on buoyant mid-tempo melodies and heavily produced piano-guitar instrumentation with a McCartney-esque progressive pop feel. Some of the songs here are orchestrated (strings and/or horns) and arranged by Bob Klimes, who also worked with Colours, the Association, and Denny Brooks. "Mothers and Fathers" and "Faces" were released as singles, but neither song charted. 2) This swedish band The Moon recorded some demo material in 96/97 which later on were released as the full-length album "In Phase" by the german label Nasoni Records. The band was founded by Qoph-guitarist Fredrik Rönnqvist and featured Federico de Costa (also from Qoph), Kent Klang and Anders Franzén. Sadly The Moon disbanded just a few years after being founded.
