Anthony Moore - Secrets Of The Blue Bag LP
Label: Wah Wah
Release Date: November 29th, 2019
Edition of 500.
British experimental musician, composer, performer and producer Anthony Moore was a founding member of Slapp Happy and has worked with Henry Cow, Kevin Ayers, and Pink Floyd among other great names in the British scene. In 1971 he moved to Hamburg, Germany, and worked in the boiling experimental scene of the city. As a result, two LPs were issued on Polydor in 1971 and 1972, right before forming Slapp Happy with old school pal Peter Blegvad and Dagmar Krause.
Secrets Of The Blue Bag, Moore's second solo LP for Polydor, was issued in 1972 but recorded in the Fall of 1971, just a bit before Slapp Happy were backed by Faust on the recording sessions of their first album. Anthony Moore was joined by soprano Geeske Hof-Helmers, violinists Toni Sen and Patrick Strub, celloist Rolph Braun and Wolf Schreiber on fagott.
The missing link between British "art-rock" and the German "krautrock" scenes!
