Eric James (no relation as their real names were Mark James Fordyce and Eric James Logan).

They released a single on a local small independent label "Is There A Reason". At that time in 1981 they were a five-piece band, and with Moore and the two James were Steve Carter and John Dalby. After the band reshuffle the three remaining members of The Mood signed to RCA in 1982 and released a new re-produced mix of "Is There A Reason". Then came "Don't Stop", still a bit of a cult classic in music circles (top 10 Hit on the Billboard Charts in the US). None of them reached the UK top 40 charts, but the follow up "Paris is One Day Away" almost did. It landed at number 42 on the UK charts and stopped there. Two places higher would have got them a definite slot on Top Of The Pops, but it was not to be. However they did appear on the popular kids show RAZAMATAZ singing "Paris Is One Day Away".

Follow up singles were "Passion In Dark Rooms" with "The Munich Thing" on the flip side, and a final single, "I Don't Need Your Love Now". The band split in 1984. A mini-lp was released in the US though no album was released in the UK. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mood)
