Taking a break from black metal, Thurston Moore has penned two new songs for the latest installment of Blank Editions’ Solo Series. Due out February 7th, the limited edition 7-inch record will sport “Detonation” as its A-side, leaving “Germs Burn” for its B-side.
Those happy-go-lucky titles are intended, though, as “Detonation” actually “pays homage to N16 London libertarian and communitarian activists,” according to a press release. Meanwhile, “Germs Burn” is a “celebration shout to punk rock secret society love.”
For now, take a listen of the screeching and wheeling “Detonation” below. And if you’re in London next month, head over to Flashback Records on February 7th, when Moore performs in support of the 7-inch release.
