Thurston Moore :: The Aquarium Drunkard Interview

Thurston Moore scarcely needs an introduction, nor do we need a specific reason to want to chat with the 62-year-old artist. There is, though, a hook for this particular chat: the release of By The Fire, a new studio effort by the Thurston Moore Group. Recorded in London, the album is all radiant heat and kaleidoscopic arrangements which join together in oozing consort and tickling friction. Shooting through this mass of sound are lyrics, written by Moore or transgender poet Radieux Radio, that are rich with poetic detail and reveal a deep craving for experience and human connection.
