“John Moore appears to be on a lifelong mission to corrupt the nation’s youth.
In the mid-’90s he gained notoriety as an importer of absinthe, the green fairy that poisoned the minds of Rimbaud and Baudelaire. Now he appears to have found a new method: rock’n’roll, the kind that saw Richard and Berry poisoning the minds of teenagers everywhere. He’s had brushes with it before in Black Box Recorder and The Jesus and Mary Chain, but he takes it back to its roots. Proof that the generation gap is alive and well.”

“A bruised eremitic, Withnailian Rattlesnake on downers.
Makes Lou Reed sound like a bricklayer.”
