While Thurston Moore is primarily known as guitarist and singer forSonic Youth, he has also led an astonishingly prolific career as a solo artist and collaborator. From playing in Mirror/Dash (a duo with Kim Gordon) to running his own label Ecstatic Peace, he has remained busy with a myriad projects. Moore formed Sonic Youth in 1981 with Lee Ranaldo and signed to Neutral Records, a label run by Glenn Branca. The band’s core consisted of Moore, Ranaldo and Kim Gordon (whom Moore eventually married) and throughout years the band featured numerous members in its line-up, including Jim O’Rourke, Jim Sclavunos, Bob Bert and Richard Edson. Outside of his work with Sonic Youth, Moore released a number of solo albums, as well as collaborations with the likes of Lydia Lunch, William Hooker, Chris Corsano, Nels Cline and many others. He was a part of Dim Stars, along with Richard Hell (Voidoids) and currently he’s a a part of noise supergroup To Live And Shave In LA, which also includes Andrew WK, as well as members of Pussy GaloreHalf-Japanese and Sightings.

Guitarist Loren Connors was born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1949. Best known as a composer and improviser, Connors has issued over 50 guitar records on his own imprints (Daggett, St. Joan, Black Label) since the late 1970s and over two dozen on other labels across the globe. He has recorded under the names Guitar Roberts, Loren Mattei, Loren MazzaCane Connors and other variations. Connors’ singular adaption of the blues is a distinct personal vision combining the Delta bottleneck sound and the ancestral blues voice (appearing as distortion, baying hounds or multi-tracked guitar), with hauntingly unexpected sounds. Outside of Connors’ three decades of solo work, he has collaborated with Suzanne Langille, Jim O’Rourke, Darin Gray, Alan Licht, Christina Carter, Keiji Haino, San Agustin, Jandek and many others, as well as leading the group Haunted House. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.While Thurston Moore is primarily known as guitarist and singer forSonic Youth, he has also led an astonishingly prolific career as a solo artist and collaborator.
