Album Review: The John Moore Rock And Roll Trio - 'Roll Your Activator Volume 1' (Greaser 2000)

Bridging the gap between the old and the new

Album Review: The John Moore Rock And Roll Trio - 'Roll Your Activator Volume 1' (Greaser 2000)

8 / 10 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 (his two cohorts in the Trio, Phil King and Loz Colbert, are both current members), but here he takes it back to its roots and throws in a demolition of T.Rex’s ‘I Love To Boogie’. Proof that the generation gap is alive and well.
