Electric Wizards JR Moores in Conversation with Rosie Solomon

‘A depth-charge exploration to the bloodied heart of heavy. Essential, energetic writing – JR Moores is the netherworld guide we always needed.

– Harry Sword, author of Monolithic Undertow: In Search of Sonic Oblivion

Being in the Home of Metal we couldn’t resist an opportunity to talk to author JR Moores about his new book Electric Wizards which explores the rich tapestry of Heavy Music from 1968 right through to the vibrant modern underground, epitomised by Supersonic darlings Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs.

‘Simultaneously hilarious, provocative and sensitive; wildly entertaining while always getting to the heart of the matter . . . Just take my goddamned bitcoin already.’ – John Doran, The Quietus
