Regarded as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Thurston Moore formed the highly influential Sonic Youth with Lee Ranaldo and Kim Gordon in 1981. The seminal New York based band went on to release sixteen studio albums, including groundbreaking records such as Daydream Nation and Goo, which brought them to the attention of the critical elite.

 Turning his attention to his solo career, Thurston spent much of the last year touring his 2011 album Demolished Thoughts. The intensely personal record was produced by longtime friend Beck Hansen and the result is an intimate, brooding and beautiful work of art.
