This is my trying-not-to-be-annoying pic of Thurston Moore from Sxsw this year. He had come into the club where the Kill Rock Stars Showcase was, and a little star struck, I snapped this awful picture.

In tandem with tickets for Sonic Youth going on sale here in my area (Dallas & Austin fans buy here, not thru ticketbastard), here are a couple of new tunes from a forthcoming Thurston solo album which will be out on Thurston’s label Ecstatic Peace on September 18. It’s mostly acoustic material and includes friends J Mascis, Christina Carter (of the Charlambides), Steve Shelley(SY drummer), & Samara Lubelski(violinist).

-15 live tracks
-studio extras
-new liner notes
-unseen photos

A 4LP edition will be out on July 10th.
