MOONLIGHT - The Edge (Modern Dance In The Twilight Zone)
"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)." - Shadoks Music .
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
