Thurston Moore, ex leader of Sonic Youth, returns to Italy accompanied by a band fresh from the success of the latest and beautiful album Best Day released by Matador Records.
The eight tracks that make up BEST DAY, the first solo album from Thurston Moore since Demolished Thoughts in 2010, show the two sides of Moore’s songwriting: A more electric noise based sound on the one hand, and the acoustic sound of his 12-string on the other.
An improvised show at Cafe Oto in London to present BEST DAY was described by the prestigious English magazine Uncut in flattering terms: “The album is excellent, and the live versions are powerful. Great songs and the feeling that Moore has found new inspiration with his new, formidable accomplices”.
Thurston Moore was the founder of Sonic Youth, the legendary New York band that must without doubt be considered one of the most important groups of the last 30 years, one of the few groups that might truly be termed fundamental, seminal and essential to the development of alternative rock.
In addition to the basic activities of the world of music, Thurston is involved in poetry and publishing and teaches writing at Naropa University, Boulder CO, the school founded by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman in 1974.
