LISTEN: Writer Alan Moore Releases Single For Guy Fawkes Day, Occupy Movement
Alan Moore, the creator of the graphic novels Watchmen and V for Vendetta — both of which have been made into movies — has teamed up with musician Joe Brown to write a song in support of the British arm of the Occupy movement — a group that adopted the Guy Fawkes mask used in his comic as a symbol of their cause of political resistance. The song, called "The Decline of English Murder," is sung by Moore himself and produced by Occupation Records, the label born out of the Occupy movement.
Despite Moore's hesitation to be too publically vocal about his beliefs, he has been a big supporter of the Occupy movement, where he has visited the Occupy London Stock Exchange camp by St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
"A tidal wave cannot be said to have succeeded or failed," Moore said at the Occupy site, reports NME.com. "All that it can be said to have done is changed things ... I would say to critics, 'What are you doing about the current situation? If you are happy with it, what the hell is wrong with you?'"
