Thurston Goes No Wave

Thurston Moore is no stranger to publishing books. just check out ECSTATIC PEACE.COM. But tackling an underground NYC music scene from the late 70s is one of his better reads. Granted, I’m a few months behind in blogging about this, but

NO WAVE.
POST PUNK.
UNDERGOUND.
NEW YORK.
1976-1980.

is such an interesting compendium of a seemingly forgotten (but all too eerily similar to present day’s) music style, that i thought it too important not to note here.

So yes, on a blog where I whine about wanting to omit genres from music and just listen impartially, I promote a book which does just the opposite. C’est la vie.
