Heavy by name and definitely heavy by nature, 'Electric Wizards' by JR Moores is a depth-charge journey into the heaviest music ever created - from Black Sabbath's proto-metal doom to the brand new underground, epitomised by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and Hey Colossus, this is a deep 480-page trawl that takes us from funk to sludge and all points in between.
Moores draws a line that sees each new phase of heaviosity being influenced and forged by what proceeded it - an elemental evolution that starts with The Beatles Helter Skelter and gains momentum as it rolls heavily forward.
Harry Sword, author of 'Monolithic Undertow' has called Moores "The netherworld guide we always needed". We couldn't agree more. If you like Melvins, Sleep, The Stooges, Earth, George Clinton, Steve Albini, Slayer, Funkadelic, Napalm Death, Butthole Surfers... oh you get the picture... if heavy is your bag, then put this book in it!
