From late 2016 onward I had the honour of receiving the permission of Thurston Moore to create an oral history detailing and describing his vast and extensive discography of collaborations, inspirations and creativity.
The book will be out on March 13 on Omnibus Press (with a U.S. specific edition released in August on Overlook in the U.S.)
The book is built on interviews with over 170 individuals who have recorded with or performed with Moore over the years – a story of the scenes and sounds he has been a part of, supported, forged and championed over the past three-and-a-half decades. The book is 336 pages including a comprehensive discography and a detailed section on the contributors also.
Over the next few weeks I’ll try to share what I can about the book, it’s content, the motivation behind it and so forth.
