An oral discography - exactly as you say. I love music, but I find most biographies are kinda 'soap opera'. What I wanted to show was how Thurston's music, outside of Sonic Youth, has evolved and developed over the years - so I received his permission to take a shot. I've spoken to around 170 participants in the various recordings from The Coachmen through to Rock n Roll Consciousness, the book contains what I 'think' is the most comprehensive discography available (Thurston shared with me a couple of records that are in such limited editions they're not even mentioned on Discogs) though not every song or recording is covered in the book (it covers about 190-200 with priority given to EP/LP length releases though some individual songs are discussed depending on who participated and relevance to the overall structure.)
