Album review

Alan Moore And Tim Perkins - Snakes And Ladders

An audio companion to Moore's most brilliant current comic Promethea, incanted in a doleful Midlands voice that whispers and barks over Perkins'synth beats, it weaves the universe's story into events around the London hall where it was first performed in 1999. Oliver Cromwell's excavated cadaver, grief-stricken Victorian horror writer Arthur Machen and Moore's '80s creation John Constantine meet in Holborn's alleys in a vision of humanity clutching its potential through precarious imaginative leaps. A sly and inspiring introduction to the mind of a British underground great.
