Photo of the Week: A Pink-Bearded R. Stevie Moore Checks in From Amsterdam




Godfather of DIY home recording, self-proclaimed genius and veteran of the Cream's Conference Call performance video series R. Stevie Moore is currently on tour in Europe. In an email labeled simply "Amsterdam," Moore sent along the above photo of himself and his backing band Tropical Ooze. The photo was presumably taken during Moore and Ooze's June 16 stop at Paradiso in Amsterdam, and it depicts the famously hirsute Moore with a brand-new beard hue. If Moore's impact on the global underground facial hair community is anything like his impact on the global underground home-recording community, be on the lookout for pink beards in about 20 or 30 years.

By the way, if you still haven't read Wire's recent cover story on Moore, do that here.
