• Some collaborations are simply written in the stars. Ryan Moore left The Legendary Pink Dots back in the year 2000 after a colossal contribution to the band over the space of 8 years on drums, bass guitar, electric guitar and even theremin. It was an impossible crater to fill, and the Dots didn’t even try — Ryan’s approach was absolutely unique. Nevertheless as The Dots adopted an airier psychedelic path and Ryan went dubterranean, the links were never broken.
• The idea of a reunion between The Dots’ Edward Ka-Spel and Ryan Moore came up over curry at the former’s house in London on a balmy summer night in 2012. Ryan sent a dvd packed with tunes, clips and outlines to Edward, and the latter extended and ultimately finished the journeys these sketches suggested. The result is a spacey rollercoaster ride which has elements of The Dots and Ryan’s own Twilight Circus brand, yet deviates away from both to occupy it’s own very strange land.
• But why “800 Saints in a Day” ? Rumour has it that the album was completed on the very day of a great elevation in The Vatican. The guys just wanted to wave at Heaven and suggest an alternative to all those damned harps.
• With Twilight Circus, Ryan Moore has worked with a wide range of respected figures from the dub, reggae and electronic genres including: Sly and Robbie, Dean Fraser, Luciano, Michael Rose (Black Uhuru) Big Youth, Mikey General, Big Youth, Skully Simms, Vin Gordon (Bob Marley), Earl “Chinna” Smith (Bob Marley), Eddie ‘Tan Tan’ Thornton (Aswad), Buttons Tenyue /Matics Horns (UB40), Ansel Collins, Style Scott (Dub Syndicate), Bobby Ellis ( Studio One), Admiral Tibet, Jah Stitch, Sugar Minott, Queen Ifrica, Lutan Fyah, Fred Locks, Gregory Isaacs, Mafia & Fluxy, Cevin Key (Skinny Puppy), DJ Spooky, Gaudi, Adrian Sherwood and The Mad Professor.
• Moore’s fascination with dub began in the early 1980s inspired by the nexus of punk rock and dub which film maker Don Letts forged in London, along with the futuristic possibilities hinted at by cyberpunk author William Gibson in Neuromancer. Throughout the 80′s he obsessively collected every dub LP he could find, which included Jamaican dub from legends like King Tubby, Prince Jammy, Lee Perry and Scientist as well as 2nd-generation figures operating from London like Adrian Sherwood, Mad Professor, and Jah Shaka.
• Since being the opening act for Skinny Puppy side project Download on their 1996 World tour and several tours billed with the Legendary Pink Dots, Twilight Circus has maintained a busy schedule playing all over the World on nearly every continent, including major festivals like Dour Festival (Belgium), Summerjam (Germany), Fuji Rock Festival (Japan),,One Love Festival (UK), Asagiri Jam (Japan), & Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (USA).
