Colourbox is the only full-length studio album from Colourbox, released by 4AD in August 1985. CAD 508 is the album's catalogue number, used to distinguish it from the earlier mini-album of the same name. The first 10,000 copies of the vinyl LP came with a bonus LP MAD 509. The CD release included the first side of the bonus LP. The album was preceded by the singles "Say You" in March 1984, "Punch" in June 1984, and "The Moon Is Blue" in July 1985.

Just Give 'em Whiskey.

Album: Colourbox, Original Release Date: 1985-08-12. Don't tell me the moon is blue (now you've let me go) Coz tonight it's over (now you've let me go) Now the pain's in the dust (now you've let me go) And you can't find your blue moon (now you've let me go) Now it's over, oh Tonight it's over, ooh Tonight. it's over, oh Over Tonight it's over, ooh. Ooh Tonight it's over Oh oh over.

There are plenty of other examples of Colourbox reaching for the skies, though: from the mid-century tearjerker gone modern "The Moon is Blue" and the album-closing gentle drama of "Arena" to the aggressive "Manic," which features a snarling guitar solo from William Orbit.

Blue Moon (The Marcels album). Blue Moon is the debut studio album by the doo-wop group The Marcels. It was released in 1961 on Colpix Records and included 12 songs.

Steel balls
A truly magnificent cover version of The Supremes classic, this one. Despite its (typically) 80s linndrum programming appeal for the year 1985, Colourbox delivered a powerful, timeless update, making it a classic all of their own! Grahame's vocals shine with absolute magic, effectively, effortlessly and in stark contrast to the track's hypnotic, tour-de-force arrangement. "The Moon Is Blue" is a mesmerising (and in typical Colourbox fashion - confusingly arranged) song, adding a touch of blues to it, lit with a gothic spark under the blue moon spell.
