from Morning Becomes Eclectic

If KCRW’s key word is "eclectic" (and it is), then by all rights Thurston Moore should be our king.  Since co-founding the boundary annihilating indie rock band Sonic Youth in 1981, Mr. Moore has been a part of something like 40 or 50 different recordings under various guises.  These recordings range from pop collaborations with such disparate figures as Richard Hell and DJ Spooky to free-form improvisational jazz.  Only three albums that bear the name Thurston Moore contain (somewhat) traditionally structured songs.  The most recent of these,Demolished Thoughts, might very well be the best.
