BEHIND THE COUNTERCULTURE #34: THURSTON MOORE

story by Lake
Editor, London
originally published: December, 2005

Thurston Moore bought a book on folk music. I once saw Sonic Youth play on Brighton beach. It took me 10 minutes to realize they had started playing. I thought they were just tuning up.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
