Andy Moor (born 1962) is an experimental musician, best known as the guitarist of the UK band Dog Faced Hermans and the Dutch punk collective The Ex. He was also a founding member of Kletka Red and along with Isabelle Vigier and Yannis Kyriakides created the experimental music label Unsounds.

Moor was born in London, England. He began his musical life in Edinburgh, Scotland, playing guitar with the band Dog Faced Hermans,[2] a group that mixed post punk with traditional music and improvisations.

In 1990 he moved to the Netherlands after an invitation to join Dutch band The Ex.[2] Moor is featured in the 2008 film "Roll Up Your Sleeves", directed by Dylan Haskins. He regularly collaborates with composer Yannis Kyriakides.

His latest projects include a quartet with Ken Vandermark, Terrie Hessels and Paal Nilssen Love called Lean Left, and duos with Anne James Chaton and DJ /rupture and Colin Mclean and Christine Sehnaoui. Moor continues to be a full-time member of The Ex.
