Acoustic Guitars In An Electric Pairing: Thurston Moore + Michael Chapman
Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore and Yorkshire singer-songwriter Michael Chapman combine their formidable talents in an intimate acoustic gig that blends American underground and British folk/blues - a meeting of two iconic musicians.
Thurston Moore has been at the forefront of the alternative rock scene since that particular sobriquet was first used to signify any music that challenged and defied the mainstream standard. He is the founder of Sonic Youth, the band that turned on an entire generation to the value of experimentation in rock n' roll.
From its influence on a nascent Nirvana, to Sonic Youth’s own Daydream Nation album being chosen by the US Library of Congress for historical preservation in the National Recording Registry in 2006, the band’s importance in rock history is undeniable.
Thurston Moore tour dates
'Michael Chapman was never just a singer-songwriter - his gritty brand of guitar based songs span folk, ragtime, jazz and blues with a world-weary voice singing words of bitter experience. His percussive style of playing is so very distinctive and he was first known on the British folk circuit in '67 where he soon established a reputation for intensity & innovation. This man is so laid back that he makes JJ Cale sound like he's on helium.'
