    The lead track on the A-side is the Field Mice's last hurrah : a truly gigantic symphonic rush of sequencers, guitars and keyboards. As alluded to elsewhere, it plays New Order at their game - and in fact has an ending that could indeed rival that of their Mancunian mentor's finest moment 'The Perfect Kiss'. New Order disappeared after 1990's monster hit 'World In Motion', not returning for another three years. 'Missing the Moon' was released in 1991 - and could have easily been the 'great lost' New Order single to plug that yawning gap - take the label and the band name off and nobody would have second guessed. That is how sneaky these Field Mice types were. Sadly, the band split after releasing their one and only full length album which followed shortly afterwards ['For Keeps'].

      The Field Mice were part of that shy, anorak-wearing, jangling guitar oriented 'C86' indie pop generation, then with its adorable bubbly trancey arpeggio motif, "Missing The Moon" is their synth-ravey moment, sounding like New Order circa 1990 or some Creation "Keeping The Faith" compilation offshoot (Hypnotone etc), while still preserving that proverbial indie modesty in the vibe. Delicious!
