Found: Moth Moving and Shipping?

The Great Eastern Pub, Brighton

At the fringes of the commercial district in Brighton, England, a warren of narrow streets called “The Lanes”, an unassuming pub. Now, it’s hardly surprising to find a pub named The Great Eastern in an English seaside town. It was, after all, a great English nautical machine. But turn the corner, and what do we find but an innocuous little storefront with the curious name “Moth”.

Moth storefrony, Brighton

There is little clue as to the purpose of this storefront. A cheap hutch and a painted iron chair sit forlornly in the window. There is no evidence of the place being open for business. Could this be the secret headquarters of Moth Moving and Shipping, Plc SA Gmbh? Could Paul, whom we haven’t really heard from since the lightning strike at the end of the final Sunny Days and Nights show, be in seclusion here?

Thanks to friend and fan Bob Hyde, just back from Jolly Old, for this intelligence.
