S: Another Beatles connection is your song Who Killed Mr. Moonlight? Is Mr. Moonlight a symbol for nostalgia?

D: Very tenuous connection. The song is all the fond memories we harbour in our hearts and it's just about showing up the good side of nostalgia and its assassination by the powers that be. The whole thing is seen like an Edwardian cartoon and nostalgia is represented by this character Mr. Moonlight.
