Moore records & performs in a cavalcade of disciplines ranging from free improvisation to acoustic composition to black/white metal/noise disruption so with a thurston album / performance, you never quite know what you're going to get.

his 5th solo album, Backed by James Sedwards of Nought (guitar), Deb Googe of My Bloody Valentine (bass) & Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth (drums), radiates with both his signature thrashing electric guitars as well as blissful 12-string acoustic ballads. "finds Moore returning to alternative rock in a more direct & aggressive form: harnessing his punk spirit with the white noise opener of 'Detonation', & references to “revolution”, it sounds as if his new existence in London has triggered an album of anti-authority & activism" - the guardian.
