Boomkat Product Review
The incomparable comic book great Alan Moore embarks upon this new musical/spoken word project with a host of formidable collaborators including photographer Mitch Jenkins and musicians such as Adam 'Doseone' Drucker, Andrew Broder (of Fog fame), Stuart Braithwaite from Mogwai, Hella drummer Zach Hill, Justin Broadrick (of Jesu, Godflesh et al) and Mike Patton. Having previously penned landmark works such as Watchmen, From Hell and V For Vendetta, Moore now presents an epic new two-hour story, read by Moore himself and focussed not on superheroes or the like, but rather Steve Moore - a fellow writer of comics who was formative to Alan Moore's early career. The language is thick and intoxicating, much as you'd expect, and the remarkable music score is every bit up to the task of matching the narrator's considerable presence. Highly recommended.
