I always preferred both the song and the sleeve side of ‘Moon Sequence’ over the more radio-friendly ‘Road Of Many Signs’. Being a space-themed track it was easy to come up with imagery to suit and I decided to use the landing pattern of the Moon capsule as a kind of dance-step routine across the lunar night sky. The astronaut’s fat boots also looked a little like giant shell toes so the ‘Breakin’ In Space’ line was added to further push home the point.
The A side over was made up, literally, of many signs I’d snapped on my travels around the world at that point including N. America and Japan.
