Published Jun 14, 2013DIY demigod R. Stevie Moore's back catalogue is massive to say the least, and it's about to get even bigger thanks to a new compilation of rarities that spans almost 30 years. Personal Appeal is due out on August 5 through Care in the Community.
According to FACT, these 15 obscurities originally came out via Moore's own Cassette Club label between the years 1973 and 2001, and include songs like "Why Can't I Write a Hit?" and "Pretend for a Second That You Are Very Intelligent." The styles reportedly range from surf rock to folk, bluegrass, country and rock'n'roll.
In related news, a number of vinyl reissues are now available through Personal Injury. Phonography, Delicate Tension, Clack!, Glad Music, the recent "I Missed July" 7-inch, and a long-delayed double-LP compilation called Hearing Aid. Check them out here.
These follow last year's Lo Fi Hi Fives: A Kind of Best Of compilation.
