"Ding Dong"
 
This is hardly news, but for those of you who haven't read it, here's a little bit o' confrontation between the critic from The Wire who reviewed The Best Day and Mr. TM. Ding dong!

Why is Thurston (or his handlers) being such a dick? It wasn't exactly a scathing review

This definitely reads like the man himself, hadn't even occurred to me that the Thurston Moore band would outsource their PR (other than for obvious things like press releases for new albums etc). They're hardly on the level of, say, Sonic Youth.

The name Daniel Spicer rings more than a few bells so I googled him and sure enough, he's active in the English improv scene and I'm pretty I saw him playing Colour out of Space in Brighton, possibly the same year Thurston and Bill Nace were there. I wouldn't be surprised if Moore and Spicer cross paths at Cafe Oto or the like at some point which would be awkward. Or maybe they already met and there is an existent beef of some kind. Mere speculation of course, seems totally unlikely.

probably he felt bit frustrated over typos and misheard co-written lyrics. looks like he is bit touchy over his last release, which is whatever, but "my new excellent record", is what makes me wonder. I am not saying it is a bad record, but is not it too much of self confidence there? ...with due respect. I am still looking forward to hear The Best Day live though.

by the way does Thurston still writes for Wire? he had a column there didn't he?

I sense an epic feud of Christgau proportions brewing... I actually heard his new record is going to be called "Daniel Spicer is my Dick" which is starting to make sense now...

Byron Coley has a coloumn The Wire. TM had a coloumn in Arthur that he wrote with Byron Coley. Their column in Arthur was recently expanded into a quarterly magazine, The Bull Tongue Review.

I'm much more disturbed by his use of ''poet provocateur'' in 2015.

i think (i hope) thurston was just ironic here, wasnt he?
altho lately in many interviews, he comes across as a person who takes himself way too serious...
here for example

he used to be such a cool dude

You can never tell with Thurston.. he is one of music's original Trollz.. its why he and Nirvana got along so damned well
