THE SUN AND THE MOON - alive not dead ep 1989
The Sun and the Moon were Mark Burgess, John Lever, Andy Clegg and Andy Whitaker, with both Andy's on guitars. The group was formed when Andy Clegg and John Lever, recruited Mark (a friendship had developed between Mark and Andy Clegg who had played keyboards with the Chameleons) and Andy Whitaker. The two Andy's had been working together on another project (Music for Aborigines).
The band recorded an album, "The Sun and the Moon" and an EP, "Alive; not Dead", which included a cover of Alice Cooper's 'Elected,' a song which the Chameleons sometimes covered during their live shows.
The setup of the band, two ex-Chameleons playing with two guitarists, begged comparison to the Chameleons, though the band tried to develop its own sound. The Sun & The Moon broke up in April 1989....
