T's got a new 7" out on Blank Forms
"We proudly present a brand new hand assembled limited 7" from our Stoke Newington neighbour, Thurston Moore.
As Mx Liberty raises its torch of truth and justice, the poet Radieux Radio and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth etc) unleash a punk rock broadside to the current man-boys of the USA government in response to their mockery of democracy:
Mx Liberty is not at home
She’s stepping out into a new zone
She climbs the fence to meet enemies
Who send their affectionate regards, please
The lyrics (included in a collage designed by Moore with this new 7-inch record, which also includes a pin badge,) describe Mx Liberty climbing over any and all fences with our so-called “enemies” in a radical heaven.
Recruit militias of
Punk angels shouting love
No loitered childhood
Take liberties that could
Wet paper when we write
Thurston, with members of his London based group, Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine), James Sedwards (Nøught) and Jem Doulton (Dead Days Beyond Help) recorded the music in a studio nearby the early ‘70s hq of Britain’s Angry Brigade on Amhurst Road, N16. This non-violent group of anarchists poets and writers of resistance remain a source of radical inspiration for Thurston & Radieux.
On the flip is “Panik” Thurston’s cover of one of the great generation zero punk rock records of all time. Originally recorded by the legendary group Metal Urbain from the 1977 streets of Paris burning with insolence and primal angst energy. It’s lyrics even more pertinent today in the face of contempo-demagoguery."
