    Throughout my whole life I have heard of, or was aware of Moondog, but oddly enough I didn t listen to his music till a year ago My family had the first Moondog album and it is perhaps one of the first records that I was aware of nevertheless I avoided him I think mostly because

    I confess I learned about Moondog via a utoob accident Frankly I think this minimal movement in music became a horse skeleton already probably even before the Velvets did their Heroin Nevertheless, one still finds oneself occasionally charmed.I remember last time I tried to watch Koyaanis

    Man I love Moondog and it s so great to see the ascendancy of his work amongst young listeners thanks to the great Honest Jons comp from the other year and that sweet grey area reissue of the Snaketime record and etc.Lots of great, thorough scholarship went into this book It s not super well writt

    Moondog was a fascinating musician and person Blinded at 16 by an accidental explosion, he moved from Wyoming to New York City in the late 1940s Moondog lived on the streets or in hotels for the most part, performing his music for anyone who would hear with instruments of his own making He made his own clo

    That such an interesting life could be the subject of such a tedious, numbing tome is a feat in and of itself A testament to the author s committment to pretentious prose.

  6. says:

    Huge Moondog fan here, but I gave up on this biography less than halfway through It s tedious and not well written, though I learned a few things I suppose but I spenttime wondering about what an author wants from his biography than I did about the subject of the biography Bummer Probably better to spend your money time on

    Moondog aka Louis Hardin, American, 1916 1999 was a highly unusual blind artist street musician, accomplished prolific composer, and eccentric cult personality I m glad I got this book by Scotto, who knew Moondog since the 1960 s and interviewed him It s informative and a fine addition to my arcane music library.I wanted this book b

  8. says:

    This book was a slog to finish, and I really wanted to love it because I like the subject so much As much as I appreciate the meticulous research and detail that went into this labor of love, the author never quite manages to bring Moondog to life His treatment of the man s itinerant childhood years felt the most developed and effective, but

  9. says:

    I can t remember the first time I heard Moondog, but, as with Robert Wyatt s post Soft Machine output, I was blown away by how varied the guy s music was, and how impossible to categorize it was This book does a good job balancing details about Moondog s s personal life with his unorthodox theories of music, which have been admired and appropriated b

  10. says:

    Too bad that such a weak story teller tackled such a mysterious subject i m really interested to know about moondog s life, but can t get myself to pick the book up again the author goes on all these digressions about what it must have been like for moondog growing up that are truly vacuous oh well
