John Higgs and Daisy Campbell chat RAW with Alan Moore

John Higgs reports that Daisy Campbell and himself visited Alan Moore and interviewed him about Robert Anton Wilson. (If you arrived late, Moore is the famed comic book writer known for Watchmen, V for Vendetta, etc. Higgs of course wrote the Timothy Leary biography I Have America Surrounded, The KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band who Burned A Million Pounds, The Brandy of the Damned, etc. Daisy is busy bringing Cosmic Trigger to the stage, as you've likely noticed from my recent blog posts).

"We filmed the interview and we'll show it in Liverpool on Feb 23rd. If you can't make that, then Daisy will also use the footage as part the indiegogo campaign to crowdfund the Cosmic Trigger play, which kicks off on April 23rd," Higgs writes.

"There was a lot of press recently about Alan's decision to withdraw from interviews and public appearances, so the fact that he was good enough to do this for us yesterday is an indication of how important RAW is to him. Alan has only rarely been asked about Wilson in interviews, and what he has to say is well worth hearing."

Moore also agreed to be the voice of FUCKUP (the big computer in Illuminatus!) for the staging of Cosmic Trigger, so his voice was recorded saying the requisite lines.
