The band continued releasing records until 2009, but even whilst they were active, Moore was constantly involved in other projects. He’s a prolific collaborator who’s worked with experimental musicians from the legendary Yoko Ono to the avant-garde saxophonist Mats Gustaffson.
With a back-catalogue as expansive as Moore’s, it’s perhaps inevitable that there’ll be some errors of judgment, and at points his work can seem a little studied.
For the most part, though, Moore is a musician whose scope, application and adaptability ensures his continued relevance. His work as a solo artist has been consistently interesting, ranging from the lo-fi scuzz of Pyschic Hearts to the experimental folk of Demolished Thoughts.
His new album The Best Day, released last October, was excellent: a squally, political guitar-cracking return, with a bluesy tinge an a touch of folk-rock.
