Moonfield

This is Moonfield.... Everything else is popcorn!!!!! Well, popcorn has something to do with it, but not much. We pushed popcorn for half a living. That’s where we met. Under bright neon with the smell of sugar and salt. Two people who always loved the same idea, but never quite got it together on their own. Open minds. On a train out from London to Gravesend. Leaving the last lights of the city behind, Somewhere there, began the process of catching the dust where Heavy Speed Thrash Metal collides with Country Folk, a didly-eye and the odd Kumbaya.
