Thurston Moore is a musician, writer, record collector, label owner, curator, video director, star of the David Markey short film Rap Damage (In Search of the Hip-Hop Rabbit), really this list could go on-and-on.

His label releases on Ecsatic Peace (and Ecstatic Yod Records in collaboration with rock critic Byron Coley) shine a broad-yet-narrowly focused light into the musical underground. Some of the artists who've released music through these labels also have FMA profiles: Menstruation Sisters, Lydia Lunch (of Teenage Jesus & The Jerks), Michael Gira, Jaap Blonk, Nels Cline, Sightings, Mouthus, Gang Wizard, Okkyung Lee, Fursaxa, Magik Markers, Lambsbread, MV&EE, Pocahaunted, Robedoor, Samara Lubelski, James Twig Harper (of Nautical Almanac), Angels in AmericaLoren Mazzacane Connors, Paul Flaherty/Chris Corsano...what am I missing? Well for a full discography try Discogs [Ecstatic Peace] [Ecstatic Yod].


Moore and Byron Coley have been "Exploring the Voids of all known undergrounds since 2002" via their Bull Tongue column in Arthur Magazine. He also manages the website Protest Records, named for its protest against United States' invasions in the middle east, offering free politicized stencils and mp3 compilations.

Outside of his work with Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore has collaborated with everyone from Richard Hell (in Dim Stars), Christian Marclay, Lydia Lunch, DJ Spooky, Mike Watt, the late Maryanne Amacher, again the list goes on and on.
