Thurston Moore shares new single ‘Mx Liberty’

      Comments Off on Thurston Moore shares new single ‘Mx Liberty’

Thurston Moore 7" coverBlank Editions have announced the release of a very limited and hand assembled 7″ single from their Stoke Newington neighbour, Thurston Moore on February 19, 2018.

Track listing

Side A: Mx LIBERTY
Side B: PANIK

Mx Liberty raises It’s torch of truth and justice, the poet Radieux Radio and Thurston Moore unleash a punk rock broadside to the current man-boys of the USA government in response to their mockery of democracy. The lyrics (included in a collage insert with the single, which also includes a pin badge) describe Mx Liberty climbing over any and all fences with our so-called “enemies” in a radical heaven. Listen to the track via Soundcloud below.

Thurston, with members of his London based group, Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine), James Sedwards (Nøught) and Jem Doulton (Dead Days Beyond Help), recorded the music in a studio near the early ‘70s hq of Britain’s Angry Brigade on Amhurst Road, N16. This non-violent group of anarchists, poets and writers of resistance remain a source of radical inspiration for Thurston & Radieux.

On the flip is Panik, Thurston’s cover of one of the great generation zero punk rock records of all time. Originally recorded by the legendary Metal Urbain from the 1977 streets of Paris. Burning with insolence and primal angst energy, It’s lyrics, are even more pertinent today in the face of contempo-demagoguery.
