As we reported four weeks ago during our coverage of Field Day Thurston Moore has formed a new group with Debbie Googe. And just to keep the heavyweight status the band also includes Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and the great Oxford guitarist James Sedwards from Nought.
There are some tour dates which are listed on Sonic Youth’s website.
And what to expect from these shows? Well here’s what Keith Goldhangar said of their Field Day set:
“We get tunes based around one note that changes in tempo and frequency, chugging along with different bursts of intensity and we get a set of tunes that also sounds so laid back and glorious that we walk away humming Sonic Youth’s “Schizophrenia” wishing these new tunes to our ears were more familiar. We get the coolest band in the field that not everyone here is actually aware of yet. OK, there’s half a dozen other things going on at the moment in this park but this has proved to be a very good reward for some of us that got out of our beds on time today.”
