Civil Civic v R. Stevie Moore – When You Gonna Find Me A Wife

If you don’t already know, R. Stevie Moore’s discography covers over 400 releases dating as far back as the 60’s, making it hard to find an entry point to his massive body of work. However, a good place to start is – I think – 2012’s Lo-Fi High Fives…..A Kind Of Best Of. Moore was – and continues to be – a massive influence on Ween, Ariel Pink and lo-fi music in general, yet he remains greatly overlooked. Maybe now, in a world where artists like Mac DeMarco have found near-fame by recording jangly “bedroom-pop”, there is a wider space to be filled by musicians once tagged too obscure. But on “When You Gonna Find Me A Wife”, a collaboration with instrumental rock group Civil Civic, Moore actually comes close to a ‘semi-hit’ – at least in the way Ariel Pink’s “Put Your Number In My Phone” is a hit.
