Thurston Moore / Men Who Can't Love /
Barrabarracuda / Kevin Shields
Thrash Sabbatical 12" + 2x 7"
An elaborate box-set of vinyl, pairing Thurston Moore 3 times
with a selection of amazing Los Angeles acts. Box set will include equaly
amazing art designed/curated by Britt & Amanda of Not Not Fun.
Thurston Moore (you know the dude, he is in Sonic Youth) contributes music that
ranges from beautiful acoustic guitar work to fierce noise and charging thud
Men Who Can't Love is the gang of young LA noise dudes that do the tag team
thing like it is the ultimate party. They share the 12" w/ Moore, and hit you
over and over with the tagteam efforts of Solitary Hunter, Impregnable, Moth
Drakula, Haircut Mountain Transit, Toxic Loincloth, & Privy Seals.
Barrabarracuda are the much more friendly sort, but welcome at the same party.
Featuring Grace of Foot Village and Amanda of Pochahaunted on fireworks... erm
drums and vocals, plus Britt of Robedoor on guitar and Nichole of Child
Pornography on keyboard. Their split 7" w/ Moore is definitly the most melodic
of the bunch.
Kevin Shields (here as Eva Aguila of Gang Wizard & Amy V of Yuma Nora) fuses
searing walls of aluminum with angelic harmonies for a tension that evokes pure
joy. Their split 7" with Moore is matched with equal amounts joy and angelicism,
but in soothing rather than tense manner.
