Thurston Moore is best known for being the co-founder of legendary alternative rock group Sonic Youth. His use of unusual tunings and distorted sounds have had an impact on experimental and post-punk music the world over, and he was ranked by Rolling Stone amongst the greatest guitarists of all time.
Moore has collaborated with writers, musicians and artists as varied as Yoko Ono, William Burroughs, Merce Cunningham and Sean Lennon.
Himself a poet, he is also an avid reader and a publisher – as well as a fan of The Liverpool Poets. As The Thurston Moore Band embarks on a world tour to promote their latest album, RocknRoll Consciousness, Moore stops off in Liverpool to perform a specially commissioned musical response to The Mersey Sound.
