Thurston Moore to Celebrate "Not My President Day" with New 7-Inch
Published Feb 01, 2018Former Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore delivered Rock n Roll Consciousness and Improvisations last year, but he's already back with some new material.
He'll release a new 7-inch single on February 19 — or as Moore has rechristened the American holiday, Not My President Day.
The single features new track "Mx Liberty" on Side A, and a cover of Metal Urbaine's "Panik" on Side B.
"Mx Liberty" is a collaborative joint with poet Radieux Radio, and it features Moore's bandmates Deb Googe, James Sedwards and Jem Doulton. It was recorded in a studio near the headquarters of '70s anarchists Britain's Angry Brigade, as an homage to the non-violent political group.
According to a press release, the track is aimed at "the current man-boys of the USA government in response to their mockery of democracy."
Listen to the politically charged song below. The 7-inch is available to pre-order here via Blank Editions.
