Hear Thurston Moore's 'Detonation' 7" inspired by Stoke Newington activists

Initially announced last November,  Thurston Moore’s forthcoming solo 7″ single ‘Detonation’ can now be heard in full.

The song, billed as a homage to libertarian and communitarian activists from the Stoke Newington area of London, sees Moore ploughing a fairly Sonic Youth-shaped furrow, sticking to punk rock where other SY members have gone strummy (Lee Ranaldo) or noisy (Kim Gordon).

‘Detonation’ is backed with B-side ‘Germs Burn’, a celebration of “punk rock secret society love”, and out on London label Blank Editions on February 7.

Moore’s been spending a lot of time in the UK in the wake of Sonic Youth’s dissolution, and he’ll be marking the release of the 7″ with an in-store gig at Flashback Records on February 7. [via Pitchfork]
