“Moore uses outer aggression to achieve inner bliss.”- Pitchfork
There’s a tendency to view the solo work of Thurston Moore purely through the lens of Sonic Youth, the iconic noise-rock band he and Kim Gordon fronted.
…and that’s exactly what we’re going to do too.
It’s impossible not to see the embers of Sonic Youth here: drummer Steve Shelley is still behind the pads, and the M.O. is still the production of sustained, sublime din. Squall with soul. Nice noise.
Moore is still Moore, after all: a smart-ass bad-ass, a downtown counterculture iconoclast, and a guitar god prone to punctuating static-filled eruptions and searing feedback. You don’t get to be #34 on Rolling Stone’s “Greatest Guitarists” list for nothing.
On bass: Debbie Googe of My Bloody Valentine.
Nothing less than alt-rock royalty, this lot.
