Ode to R. Stevie Moore

I’m totally addicted to R. Stevie Moore’s music.
He’s a lo-fi legend, one of the D.I.Y music pioneers. Moore has been recording at home since 1976, when he self-released his first LP “Phonography”. A jewel.

Sometimes his sound reminds me of Syd Barret solo albums, some compositions are new wave, others more Beach-Boys-esque, but all share a really unique essence.
Save Stevie!! Support him by buying his recordings on his website!

ps: His father was Elvis Presley’s bass player!! Look at him on a Santa Claus hat on the video above.
