The Wire reviewed this...

R Stevie Moore & Alan Jenkins
The Embodiment of Progressive Ideals
Cordelia CD

Nashville's greatest underground music explorer makes a return with a new album of odd ditties, strange sermons and recitations retrieved from discarded product packaging and advertisement blurbs. Assisted by Deep Freeze Mice guitarist Alan Jenkins and The Kettering Vampires, R Stevie Moore lets blurt a plethora of miniature monologues, the bulk of which sound like they have been composed using the William S Burroughs / Brion Gysin cut-up method. Hilarious, manic and tinged with a sense of despair, Moore's latest laconic commentary on his own life, and the continually warping world we all share with him, is a revelation.
