Thurston Moore moves on

By DANIEL BROCKMAN  |  January 25, 2012

Demolished Thoughts begins with the mournful "Benediction," whose coda sees Moore repeating ad infinitum, "I know better than to let her go." In the wake of the band's implosion, all four members have gone public with other projects: besides Moore's solo album and tour, drummer Steve Shelley joined Disappears, guitarist Lee Ranaldo is prepping for the release of a solo album this spring, and Gordon has teamed up with Bill Nace for the no-wave Body/Head project. But Moore's Thoughts album is likely to be the only project to address these raw feelings — and his Tuesday run-through of said tunes, wistful yet sparkling, may be more psychically healing for the throngs looking for reasons than any well-stated explanation could ever be.

    If rock and roll is three chords and the truth, then the mutant genre offspring shoegaze can be summed up as one chord, three fuzzboxes, and a sullen, muttered bleat.
