I just don't get it. Its a strange type of nostalgia.

And it is fucking ugliness.

Seeing the words 'Thurston Moore' and 'Twilight' together makes me cringe.

First, let me say that I have never been a fan who automatically likes every side project Thurston has done. I listened to some of Twilight's first record the other night, fully expecting to hate it. I've always liked metal, but what little I had heard of black metal left me unimpressed. But this was surprisingly good, except for the silly vocal style that seems to be prevalent in this kind of music. There was some melody underneath the sheets of noise. I can even see parallels with some of Sonic Youth's stuff. So, what struck me as a case of "strange bedfellows" actually makes a little sense to me now. I wouldn't mind seeing them live.

Black Metal is the only genre I've ever heard that manages to make noise and aggression sound boring. Thurston's too nice and too cool and too much of a sonic wizard for such a genre to deserve, but if anyone could make something interesting out of it, it would be him. I'm curious, but neither outraged nor excited. Definitely rings of a mid-life crises, at any rate

Whatever BM's shortcomings, Thurston turning up in his muscle car with his hair in a ponytail hardly sounds like any kind of remedy. Good luck to him though. Living the dream.

Al this talk of mid-life crisis as a motivator really pisses me off as a middle aged person who has ALWAYS BEEN IN BANDS FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

Thurston is a musician. He is a "band person." He likes "music." Like most people with decent taste, he listens to things outside the areas in which he himself has historically played. Jesus. He wants to explore a new avenue in an area of music that he enjoys and is outside his usual stylistic parameters (though I argue that BM has many qualities that appeal to noise/sonic/no wave fans [tremolo chord picking, raw recording quality and dissonance for instance], and those qualities were in fact what got me interested in Burzum in the early/mid 90s and made me a metal fan when I had previously dismissed the entire field out of hand), and I say good for him.

A fucking midlife crisis band is a guy picking up his guitar after "giving up that youthful bullshit" and playing AC/DC covers or Blueshammer shit with his buddies from work at some neighborhood bar.

Thurston is a lifelong musician. He has always made music and will continue to do it. BIG FUCKING SHOCK. No one is levelling the midlife tag at Lee for continuing to make music he enjoys at this point.

I am not super into Twilight (bought the first LP and didn't wind up keeoing it after a few listens), but it's a solid group and has an audience and there are far worse ways Thurston could have scratched his black metal itch.

Zygotes, man. You come back when you're 40+ and we'll see if you're still even remotely cool. If you are, I guess it's a "crisis."


Fuck it.

(I guess I just get sensitive and annoyed about these things. You stay current and try to remain vital and "in the now" and it looks like a midlife crisis, you stick to your guns and you're "a sad old man living in the past." These things are usually only uttered by people too young to have had to deal with aging and not turning square...)
