Something of a three-chord supergroup, the John Moore Rock and Roll Trio features the talents of -- not surprisingly -- singer-guitarist and sometime British importer of absinthe John Moore, and the Jesus and Mary Chain's current rhythm section of bassist Phil King (ex-Lush/Earl Brutus) and erstwhile Ride drummer Loz Colbert.
Playing the Devil's music on the Lord's day on Sunday, April 11, at East London's intimate Old Blue Last venue, the band, aided and abetted by backing singers the Loose Moorelles, partied like it was 1959 with a spirited revisiting of some of rock's key moments. The likes of Bo Diddley's 'Roadrunner,' Eddie Cochran's 'Twenty Flight Rock' and '50s classic 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On' were resurrected and dusted down.
Speaking with Spinner, Moore confirmed the band hope to record and release the follow-up to their debut album, 2010's 'Roll You Activator' later this year. Given that it was recorded in an intense two-day burst at the tail end of last year, there remains every chance that the John Moore Rock and Roll Trio will be on Volume Five before the Jesus and Mary Chain's belated follow-up to 1998's 'Munki' sees the light of day.
