Charles Hayward & Thurston Moore - Improvisations LP
Label: Care In The Community
Earlier in 2017 iconic artists Charles Hayward (This Heat) and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) spent an afternoon improvising. Charles Hayward on drums and Thurston Moore on guitar. This LP is the result. Improvisations is a vinyl-only release, limited to 500 copies worldwide. The seven tracks are unnamed but are identified by the side and order in which they appear, ie. A1-3 and B1-4. This was the third time Hayward and Moore played together. The session was recorded at Lynchmob studios through the famous 1969 Neve console originally built for the BBC. Charles Hayward has been a prominent figure in British music over the last 40 years: Gong at 19 years of age, Quiet Sun with Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno, Camberwell Now, and of course the revered This Heat now touring the world in its phoenix-like rebirth as This Is Not This Heat. Thurston Moore spent thirty years fronting the groundbreaking and massively influential Sonic Youth, in addition to numerous collaborative and experimental side-projects and running the SYR imprint, as well as his own Ecstatic Peace label.
