Biography

Alan Moore (born 18 November 1953 in Northampton) is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed comic book series Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell. He has also written a novel, Voice of the Fire, and performs “workings” (one-off performance art/spoken word pieces) with The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, some of which have been released on CD.

As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium as well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes.

    Ok, so having listened to Unearthing... I had originally been interested because I'm a big fan of the two who composed the score, which I thought suited it, but was not what I was expecting, and found it a bit underwhelming. I was hoping for something that would work well as stand alone music, but whatever. I figured the actual reading would be interesting, but wow, that was intense. I was a bit confused for about the first five minutes and then I found it's groove and ran with it. Before I knew it, it was over and I was wondering if I had just been taken briefly from my body. Really stellar, and I'm excited to hear/see/experience the follow-up to it.

    I haven't gotten my copy of Unearthing yet, I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival, but I feel obligated to clear up the music aspect of it... all music was composed by the group Crook&Flail. Featured on the soundtrack are Mike Patton, Stuart Braithwaite, Zach Hill and Justin Broadrick. They contributed, but they didn't compose any large portions of it. /irritation

    Just listened to the Unearthing -audiobook. Not a huge Alan Moore follower, but mainly because the score (Brilliant, experimental and moody ambience from Justin Broadrick) but the story itself was more intriguing than I had thought. Definately worth the two hours.

    "Dummy" from THE BIRTH CAUL - amazing stuff - "up picked and downput we are"! Been reading him since "The Anatomy Lesson", bought off the stands years ago. The man is phenomenal, changed and influenced my life so many ways. Comics, spoken word, VOICE OF FIRE - Thank you, Mr. Alan Moore - you made life better for me!

    Unless the former Judas Priest-drummer have released some soloproject which scrobbles as "Alan Moore", I think someone might consider removing all references between Alan Moore and Judas Priest :P
