Todd Moore & J.A. Deane | Dillinger | Zerx

Todd Moore voice | J.A. Deane music

6 Years in the making this blows any other “spoken word” CD out of the water.

With a 44 magnum. ( I usually run for cover whenever someone uses that term “spoken word” – leave that one for the wussies. ) Todd illuminates the abandoned soul of John Dillinger. Dino breaks open the Gates of Hell. Not for the squeamish. When an hour of Dillinger was broadcast over the radio one Sunday afternoon back in 1997, KUNM was inundated by calls from frightened listeners, huge flocks of crows blackened the skies over Albuquerque, and the churches had record attendances for that evening’s observances. Mark Weber

First, it is a great thing to have Dillinger reborn again

being read this time you hear his voice in poem Dillinger and Todd Moore is reading his poem of American hero. His voice (Moore’s) and poem enhances J. A. Deane’s music and the music fits like a knife in the rare cooked steak of Dillinger served up by Moore.” — Michael Basinski, The Hold, March 2002

Todd Moore was a poet in the shockism style. He says, “For your information gansta poetry in this country isn’t Bukowski’s invention, it’s mine. I’ve been making this kind of stuff since 1970 give or take. And, it has nothing to do with Bukowski’s style or subject matter. Bukowski was the pornagrapher of pussy and a damned good one at that. I’m the pornographer of violence.”
