It’s Lunacy I tell you, the Moon is driving us crazy!

The Moon has held a strange fascination over our imaginations ever since our hominid ancestors first looked up and gazed upon our closest companion.

The Moon has been seen as the abode of strange beings, the cause of Madness (hence Lunacy), the power that triggers Lycanthropy and many other things too.

Musically, Moon has traditionally been rhymed with June, but that hasn’t stopped musicians using the imagery of the Moon for their own ends.
