Craig Moore with the Nevermores
This episode, I have something really special. It’s a performance from the Show-me Blowout by the 60’s garage rocker Craig Moore. Craig Moore was one of the original members of the 1960’s band Gonn from Keokuk, Iowa. Now I don’t really expect you to have heard of Gonn because they never really broke out as a national act. But one of their records, Break Out Of Gretely did become a classic long after the band broke up when collectors started digging up forgotten garage rock recordings from the 60’s. And it was included on the essential collection of underground garage rock, Nuggets Vol. 1. The band recorded about 13 songs in their short carreer in the 60’s and one other one, Doin Me In got some notoriety in the late 90’s when it was finally released for the first time on the compilation Essential Pebbles collection Vol. 10 released by AIP records (one of the Bomp lables). And that is the song I have for you on this episode of LO-FI SAINT LOUIS, Craig Moore performed this song with The Nevermores (our own local St. Louis garage rock gods) at the SHowme bLowout a couple of weeks ago. Craig is 61 years old now and a grandfather, but he still rocks and he still has that classic scream.
