Thurston Joseph Moore is an American musician best known as a singer, songwriter and guitarist of Sonic Youth. He has also participated in many solo and group collaborations outside Sonic Youth, as well as running the Ecstatic Peace! record label. New Thurston Moore record, featuring the same line-up of musicians who played on his last album, The Best Day: Deb Googe (of My Bloody Valentine), James Sedwards, and Steve Shelley. Recorded by Paul Epworth in London at The Church. Mixed by Randall Dunn in Seattle at Avast.
This disc by the former Joe Ely guitar player Ian Moore bears little resemblance (other than the high octane quality) to the music he made with Ely, and owes much more to the Beatles and the psychedelic movement. You are still able to discern his underlying feel of the blues. This is a long leap, but it is a very positive broad step out. Moore either wrote or co-wrote ten of the 11 songs on the disc, and there are no weak ones; nor do they fall into any repetitiveness or follow any formula.
