Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore To Release ‘Sonic Life’ Memoir

July 11, 2021

This should satisfy the 90’s music nerds in your life. Publishing house Faber has purchased the rights to Sonic Youth founding member Thurston Moore’s memoir and plan on releasing “Sonic Life” in 2023.

The synopsis reads, “From his infatuation and engagement with the 1970s punk and ‘no wave’ scenes in New York City, to the 1981 formation of his legendary rock group, to 30 years of relentless recording, touring, and musical experimentation, birthing the Nirvana era of alternative rock, and beyond, it is all told via the personal prism of the author’s intensive archives and research.”

Last year, Moore was interviewed by Vulture and said he was working on the book, “This downtime period allowed me to do this, so I have this manuscript called ‘Sonic Life’ that I probably will publish at some point in 2021.”

Moore’s been busy, his latest solo album, “By The Fire”, was release in the fall of 2020.
