A Glimpse Of Paradise proudly presents
R. STEVIE MOORE (NASHIVILLE / USA)
The Godfather of home recording returns to Geordie shores!
Following on from his much loved Newcastle debut at the Star And Shadow last August, R. STEVIE MOORE returns to the UK and Europe to twist again, with his band TROPICAL OOZE in tow and with the release of a brand-spanking-new double album, recorded with long term friend and disciple ARIEL PINK.
Born in 1952 to famed ELVIS + ROY ORBISON Bass player BOB MOORE, since 1966 - R. STEVIE has recorded nearly 2,000 songs on over 400 very original homemade albums of alarmingly idiosyncratic variety and styles and is often considered a seminal pioneer in the DIY & home recordists ethic.
He has worked on numerous collaborations with a variety of musicians and artists including David Shrigley, MGMT, Jad Fair, Mike Watt + David Gregory from XTC; as well as recently recording a 7" single for CHARLATANS singer TIM BURGESS' label.
Remaining virtually unknown until recent years, he quietly resided in New Jersey as curator of his own museum, until now! R. STEVIE MOORE - back in Tennessee,
loudly shouting and ready to charm Europe once again!
Monday 4th June at the Star And Shadow Cinema, Newcastle.
