A new “oral discography” book on Sonic Youth co-founder and noise rock pioneer Thurston Moore is due out in two months. Nick Soulsby’s We Sing a New Language: The Oral Discography of Thurston Moore features contributions from people like Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo, Swans’ Michael Gira, Wilco’s Nels Cline, Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite, Bad Seeds drummer Jim Sclavunos, musician and Sonic Youth producer Don Fleming, filmmakers Richard Kern and Dave Markey (who directed 1991: The Year Punk Broke), plus Lydia Lunch, Richard Hell, and Glenn Branca. No Kim Gordon, it would seem. The book is out March 13 from Omnibus Press. [Pitchfork]
