  • Thurston is kvlt and trve

    Who knew Thurston Moore liked black metal? Dude is a walking encyclopedia of music (and probably unintentionally responsible for a LOT of hipster douchebaggery).

    Anyhoo: http://decibelmagazine.com/Content.aspx?ncid=305305

      Any time I get an opportunity to read an interview with Thurston Moore, I take it. He's just plain awesome.

          I love thrash/speed metal from the 80's I dunno abouts the black metal/death metal whatever you wanna call it(I'm trying to listen to some ol skool Death) but I also love the angry driven sounds of hardcore punk and even symphonies use atonal chord passages or harmonies(ala flat fifths) that can showcase your emotion and feelings.

          One of my fave bands of all time uses them in their grande finale.
          Not to mention when I was a little kid I was facinated by the dark, evil sounding ominous gospels in the movie "the omen".

              I enjoy some death metal, but black metal - I dunno, I understand what Thurston is talking about, but all the coldness and detachedness kinda puts me off, but seems to attract him.
              In my book, angry and emotional stuff >>> cold and dark stuff. Like, I'd rather listen to Slayer than Gorgoroth.

                Thurston's into whatever will get him attention and make him seem like an expert. I've been a Sonic Youth fan forever, but that guy really gets on my nerves.

                  A friend showed me this a few weeks ago.
                  I like his attitude towards black metal and it's actually a really well written/conducted interview

                            Im a HUGE sonic youth fan. They have influenced me beyond words.
                            Thurston always seems strategically into whatever will make him seem knowledgable.

                            There is no black metal nfluence from what I can hear on their new record as he suggested. Just gotta get the young sipper snappers interested me thinks.

                              Thurston often purposely ****************s with and gives mis-information in interviews... and then it is great because you see how lazy media then repeats it Like the "trilogy" of new york albums they were releasing

                              But as far as knowledge regarding music. he is probably a savant with that stuff so it just absorbs as a sponge. I am that way with retro video game knowledge. I know **************** about Capcom Disney games that I never even played because it just soaks in when other people talk around me about it, or if I wikipedia trainwreck into some info...
