Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore is selling a portion of his "highly collectible" private record collection


Sonic Youth founding member Thurston Moore is selling a large portion of his personal record collection.

Moore is teaming up with London record shop World of Echo, selling what they describe as “highly collectible or rarely seen” records which will be available via their 128 Columbia Road shop in London on October 5.

“Thrilled to announce that on Saturday 5th October we will be selling over 300 records sourced from the private collection of Thurston Moore,” the label announced.

“As would be expected given Moore’s relationship to the underground and lifelong engagement with various music cultures, the selection compromises a broad range of genres, spanning multiple variants of jazz, noise, hardcore, black metal, ethnographic, punk and post-punk, no-wave, krautrock, ambient, electronic and the avant garde.”

They added: “Unsurprisingly, a number of the records are highly collectible or rarely seen. The collection will not be available to purchase online and will only be accessible by visiting the shop. In advance of the day, we will be revealing a sample of some of the available titles via Instagram.”
