Win a copy of Thurston Moore: We Sing A New Language

We’ve teamed up with the good people at Omnibus Press to give away a copy of Nick Soulsby’s Thurston Moore: We Sing A New Language, the first definitive account of Moore’s work across many hundreds of collaborations, solo recordings and guest appearences.

His long tenure in Sonic Youth might speak for itself, but in this book Moore’s friends and colleagues speak revealingly for his other achievements, bringing together a wide variety of creative enterprises whose unifying thread is nothing more or less than Thurston Moore’s passionate devotion to music. Celebrating everything from Fluxus, through acoustic guitar and black metal to noise and improvisation, his has been a career that defies easy summary but rewards careful exploration…

Spanning 1978 to the present day, Nick Soulsby’s book takes the reader inside the creative process, capturing each key shift and development in Moore’s work from his time with Glenn Branca’s seminal guitar orchestras to his wholehearted embrace of free jazz and improvisational music in the mid-nineties.
