Thurston Moore
Free/Love
Throne Heap Devotional Music TH-007
Cassette
6.99

Limited edition of 90 copies solo cassette from Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, with some of his blackest blues guitar to date. Subtle constructions of Industrial klang give way to huge shadows of form-eclipsing feedback, grimy analog tape nada and the sound of guitar pick-ups singing softly into the air. Excellent.

I would extend this invitation to include the other two or three extremely limited, cassette-only releases from Thurston.

Due to bad past experiences, I just can't bring myself to purchase cassettes any longer. Maybe Thurston should start thinking about 8-tracks.

I purchased a copy of it, and I also purchased copies of the other super-limited T releases, but I probably won't upload them. You'll just have to buy them.

Anyway, if I stopped doing things because of bad past experiences, I'd never get out of bed in the morning. Although I have also had a bad staying-in-bed-all-day experience, so I wouldn't be able to do that either.

Oh, don't get me wrong--I'm not being a tightwad, or lazy, because I can't walk into Walmart or wherever and buy (extremely) limited edition Thurston Moore releases. It's the format that bugs the living hell outta me: cassette. Imagine that word in monster blood-dripping letters. I have a long-time hatred, if not outright fear, of the dreaded cassette.

I have really nice mint-condition vinyl copies of Thurston's self-titled/split album with Cotton Museum, and Songs We Taught The Lord with Phil Milstein. I'd gladly upload those if I had the technology and my fucked-up pre-amplifier didn't bring out the most godawful staticky racket when I use my turntable these days.

I found a copy of Free/Love on SoulSeek a couple of weeks ago, and finally got around to listening to it several days later. It was an enjoyable experience overall, but it demands one question: Can someone tell me if those rather loud clicks! and snocks! on the first number were actually on the original master, or are they merely the result of a poor upload from a faulty cassette...?

Thurston (and Lee) treat these experiments the right way. They are no strangers to improvising, no spring chickens.

And Thurston is especially known for being incredibly gracious to young noise-makers and for seeming genuinely interested in trying to mine some sort of perceived untapped potential.
It's as if it's an attempt to encourage them in the vainglorious hope that someone will come along with the next Confusion is Sex for the 21st century.
To haha TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL ALL CRYPTO-STYLEY-like...

It's not going to happen.
It's a lost cause.
These people are daft.
Their shit is atrocious.

The best "noisy" stuff out there is made by the avant-garde free jazz groups like Zu, The Original Silence, Ground Zero & Otomo Yoshihide, Paal-Nilssen Love & Town House Orchestra, Art Ensemble of Chicago, and so on, who are masters at what they do. There's lots more to mention, of course. Musicians like Han Bennink, Marc Ribot, and Nels Cline are usually involved with something interesting. Truthfully, I've never been all that wild about The Ex or Haino.

Animal Collective is taking noise to new places musically.

The best proper "noise band" powerhouses are still Wolf Eyes and Black Dice from what I've heard, which, in all honesty, isn't a whole hell of a lot.

I've tried listening to laptop-driven Prurient, Fennesz, and Merzbow, etc., and found it to be insufferable junk.

Well noise is kind of the Greatful Dead of the aught years - its been around for 20+ years now...your parents could have listened to it. It all seems to be one idea to me, that they then do over and over and over again, with different shocking photos on the cover.

i, for one, am sooo fucking tired of the "harsh extreme malevolent" noise that's so prominant right now. why doesn't more of it try to be less shocking and more geared towards actually being good?
