Perhaps this week’s “Musicblogocide 2010” fiasco reminded Thurston Moore that he registered a Blogger/Blogspot account back in ‘06, as the Sonic Youth guitarist just dropped about a dozen posts on his music, art, and poetry blog, dubbed “Flowers & Cream,” in the past two days alone.
Though the initial posts were pretty typical blog fare (a photo of Marianne Faithfull, a Youth Brigade album cover), Moore got a bit more comfortable late on his first day of blogging, posting new poem “7th floor overlooking manhattan bridge,” a photo and blurb from a recent performance, and, most recently, an awesome memoir/review of Iggy and the Stooges’ recently reissued classic Raw Power. Follow Friday Saturday!
“The lyrics ‘look out honey cuz I’m using technology…’ in one snarl decimated everything around them,” Moore writes of Iggy Pop’s “Search and Destroy” lyrics. “A lot of it was due to the delivery of Iggy’s vocal – it was as if the flaming voice of rock n roll had found it’s Rosemary’s Baby to deliver us from nowheresville. And by God, it did.”
