I gave the LP a spin last night to get ready for tonight....half of the album felt...empty. I'm getting that sonic groove Thurston always does...but man....kind of sounds like shit without the rest of the band sometimes. Alighted and Burroughs are wicked tracks for sure.

I think the word is elements. One person can only conjour up so many elements. We are used to listening to albums with many people involved so when you hear a project with only one principle person it sounds sparse.

I like how stripped down it is.

I love the jammy arty direction SY took in their later years, but it's fun hearing Thurston doing simpler stuff. I really love Alighted. . . there's this great dark vibe to it that harkens back to 80s Sonic Youth, but it's also got that great chugging heavy metal thing going on, which is kind of new territory.

Magic Stick Detroit - CLM Awesome!

Got Thurston to sit and play my Jazzmaster, and then sign it.
It was a beautiful moment in my life.

Saw him lastnight @ Lee's Palace in Toronto (or as Thurston called is "Lee Ranaldo's Palace")... I'm pretty certain Thurston's revisited the CGDGBB guitar tuning for this CLM album now, because when he played 'staring statues' and 'pretty bad' for the encore he didn't retune the B and e strings and from the get go at the beginning of the show i could hear the unison on those strings quite easily...
I good show overall not as energetic as I thought they'd be (Thurston and John were the most into it, but Keith and Samara are solid players nonetheless), but a good solid set. Not as fully attended as I anticipated probably because it was Easter Sunday, and someone in the audience gave Thurston a Lindt chocolate bunny in gold foil.
The goofiest part was a new song they played where Thurston didn't have a music stand and pulled a lyric sheet of paper out and read the lyrics (w/o playing guitar) and then biting the paper between verses so he could use his hands to play the guitar.
Said hi to John Moloney as my band(s) have opened for Six Organs and Sunburned in the past, but didn't get to talk... man folks in Toronto love to crowd and hover over that merch for-like-ever likes it sacred, kinda annoying...
got 2 cdrs (Rat Power , a John Moloney punk/hardcore band and Irish-American Prayer, which is a Thurston and Moloney improv duo interspersed with beat-poetry reading segments by Dennis O'Driscoll and Thurston himself.

I was at the show as well...Good times, kinda low-key different holiday vibe.
I also saw that hand reading situation which was kinda bizarre. I had no idea what that song was, the rest were recognizable.

They also played a song/band called hush arbors or something...I wasn't familiar....maybe a side project of the bandmates. One joke T made was about some band the Poles who had a single called CN Tower that he had growing up....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzPrX5TeaF4

He also talked about some bands that were around for the first wave of punk in the late 70s....like the diodes and mentioned a place called Crash 'n Burn which was a hangout for Toronto punks in the late 70s...

Toronto punk history is just getting its due in the last few years. It is not as interesting as NY or London but hey wtf?

Haha i posted this on the Chelsea Light Moving facebook page (which is Thurston?), my wife videod this on her iphone. we were sitting right behind the soundbooth.

The "Ecstasy" is that song where in Toronto Thurston put that lyric sheet between his teeth during the bridge sections and then sang the lyrics and didn't play guitar because he was holding and reading the sheet.

Saw them in Pittsburgh last night.

They played everything off the LP, No-Go, Ecstacy, and a few other new songs which I can't remember the name of.

It was weird seeing Thurston outside of Sonic Youth. The rest of the band seemed more like a backing band. It's kind of odd seeing a band where there's only one big foreground personality & the rest of the band is just background.

Alighted was awesome live BTW. So excited when they played that.


I hope they come back to Pittsburgh though, I didn't think the turnout was quite that impressive for THURSTON fucking MOORE. I felt like a little girl when he came out, I wanted to just scream THURSTON!!!!! and wet my panties.

Thurston should NEVER sacrifice his guitar playing to read his "lyrics"

It sounds like this happens between "The Ecstasy" and "Sunday Stage". Weird, but is that actually the CY "MacBeth" riff?

The whammy bar story is in the encore. I need to hear "Skrewer Boy" again now!

They were very good in Detroit with help from Wolf Eyes. The material isn't T's most ripe but, fuck, if you're a lifetime fan like me the context of a new (one-off?) band and smaller crowd made it special and groovy.

Best compliment I can give: I didn't spend the whole time wishing Lee was on guitar or Steve on drums. That's saying something.
