Alan Moore Creates Supergroup

Super heros? Nope. Guitar heros. via pitchfork

Picture-6

Moore has teamed up with some big music names lately. He’s currently working with Gorillaz on an opera about the life of the English alchemist and magician John Dee. And on July 5 in the UK and July 6 in the U.S., Lex will release Unearthing, a box set centered around audio of Moore reading a story with a score by a crew of out-music all-stars.

The Unearthing score is credited to Crook&Flail, a duo comprised of Fog’s Andrew Broder and Adam Drucker, better known as abstract rapper Doseone. Others drop in to contribute: Mike Patton, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Jesu/Godflesh frontman Justin Broadrick, and prolific drum-wrecker Zach Hill.

    This sounds like an amazing collaboration! Combine the talents of Mike Patton, Justin Broadrick and Zach Hill, who come from such amazing and diverse musical backgrounds, then with the equally amazing Allen Moore there is almost a 100% chance of great art!

    Mike Patton's newest project Mondo Cane released their first album yesterday and it sounds pretty good. At least if you like weird Mike Patton stuff. I also just found out that he was the source of the monster's voices in I am Legend. This will definitely get a listen from me.
