Top Shelf Productions is proud to present THE HIGHBURY WORKING, Alan Moore's startling new performance CD from Steven Severin's RE: label. This CD, the collaboration of Alan Moore & Tim Perkins, is a hallucinatory journey through the darker secrets of the Highbury area of London. It gives up some of the lesser-known facts about the checkered past of this hitherto respectable part of the sprawling metropolis. First performed upstairs at The Garage in the winter of 1997, The Highbury Working RE:creates the magickal spoken word performance of Alan Moore and sets it against the brooding atmospheres and soundscapes of Tim Perkins (best known for his musical achievements with Finality Jack). Whether it's the brutal gangland slaying of Jack the Hat (by those 'legends' of mayhem the Krays) or the opium-tinged reveries (and nightmares) of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Highbury Working is a compelling piece of work charting the infinitely more interesting and rewarding realms of London than the tourist brochures tell of. The CD underlines how unique and enigmatic a storyteller Alan Moore truly is. Alan Moore collectors won't want to miss the opportunity to pick up this rare Alan Moore import.
