Thurston Moore - By The Fire
By The Fire is Thurston Moore's seventh solo album, and features musicians Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine) on bass and backing vocals, Jon Leidecker aka ‘Wobbly’ (of Negativland) on electronics, James Sedwards on guitar, and Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley, as well as Jem Doulton, alternating on drums.
Recorded in early 2020 in the ex-Sonic Youth singer/guitarist Moore's adopted home of north London, he was, despite the pandemic, determined to release it before the end of the year - a year he describes as a "time for radical change and collective awareness," an attitude reflected in the songs, which strike a decidedly hopeful tone through the familiar harmonic guitar noise/discord.
Some of the songs feature all of the musicians whist a few are solo guitar and vocals, Thurston worked on the ﬁnal cover and sleeve art with London-based artist Radieux Radio who also wrote lyrics for a few of the songs.
