Biography

John Moore

John Moore, entered the world at a quarter past midnight on 23rd December 1964.
At school, he acquired the nickname Mussolini, for his habit of scowling at classmates and refusing to come out from under the table.
At the age of ten he began having guitar lessons. To save his family from further renditions of ‘Street of London’ and ‘Scarborough Fayre’, a family friend gave him some Muddy Waters, Little Richard and Bo Diddley LPs to learn, which he did.


In 1985, owing to a remarkably similar dress sense to the The Jesus and Mary Chain’ he was asked to join the band - eagerly abandoning his degree course – before it abandoned him.
He left in 1988, then released two albums as John Moore And The Expressway, then squandering his advances in New York.
Having explored Rock’n’Roll in great detail, he returned to England. Just as Grunge was sweeping the nation, he formed the minimalist trio Revolution 9. Critically applauded, but out of sync with the times, they released an album called ‘You Might As Well Live.’
While on tour in The Czech Republic, Moore discovered Absinthe. He fell in love with the stuff, and the feeling was mutual. Having managed to persuade the distiller that he should be allowed to import it, he came to the attention of The Idler Magazine, with whom he set up a company called Green Bohemia. Right in time for the Millennium they started the Absinthe craze - and did well out of it.
