«Refer» is their debut album - it is an album about sex, death and addiction. Each song examins a particular issue, for example, the death of a relationship (Hollow Eyes) or the power dynamic between cam girls and their viewers (Electronic). Refer turns a lens to the darker side of life and peers at the seedy underbelly. As the name of the album suggests, the songs are full of references, some hidden/some obvious, to literature, musical genres and the works of great artists that have gone before.
Mark E Moon came together as a working project in the Autumn of 2018 and is the band name of Mark Sayle and Phil Reynolds. Mark E Moon's songs are about sex, death and addiction, sometimes all at once. They play Dystopian post punk/wave music.
Mark Sayle met Phil Reynolds nearly 30 years ago. Mark was an aspiring singer/songwriter and Phil was already an accomplished musician in his own right having played in the bands Suicide Highlife and, the John Peel session debutantes and darlings of the underground industrial noise punk scene, Colon. They came together over alcohol and a shared love of music. Joy Division, The Sisters Of Mercy, The Chameleons, late 70s and early 80s electro: this type of music would become grist for the mill of Mark E Moon (big synths, dark basslines and darker lyrics).
Mark has formed the bands Circus worlD, Bikini Conflict Rumour, Poison Hearts and Slow Decay. Phil has played with The Problem, formed Tea, stepped in to play bass for postrock band Postcode on their European tour, and records with his band Phil Reynolds And The Dearly Departed. Phil recently joined Slow Decay playing bass.
