Background

Before settling in Malaysia, Moss, sometimes fondly addressed as Uncle Paul, was the song writer, guitarist and musical director for international pop band Aishah and The Fan Club.

The band originated from New Zealand and comprised of five members. They were Paul Moss himself on guitars, Malcolm Smith on keyboards, Glenn Peters on Bass, Dave Larsen on drums and Aishah as their lead vocalist.

Aishah and The Fan Club were a big hit in 1990 when they ralbum Sensation which had three #1 singles in New Zealand and Malaysian charts. The hits were "Sensation", "Paradise" and "Call Me".

Their next album titled "Respect The Beat" also produced three hit singles such as "I Feel Love", "Never Gave Up On You" and the only single to actually debut in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts "Don't Let Me Fall Alone". The remixes for the song were also released and became one of the most played dance tunes during that time.

After the band split in 1993, Aishah went on her solo career and the rest of the members went back to New Zealand. Moss, however, returned and decided to settle down in Malaysia in 1995. He and Ahmad Izham Omar (who is today the CEO of 8TV, a Malaysian TV channel) formed their own music company called Positive Tone under the EMI label.
