The blogger platform may not be the best place to go to host a music blog at the present time, but Sonic Youth singer/guitarist Thurston Moore has set one up anyway. Moore has launced the Flowers & Cream site over here, which contains a mixture of poetry, photographs, and a short report from a memorial for Jim Carroll.
The longest post so far is a piece about the Stooges’ Raw Power, in which Moore reminisces about buying the record in the early ‘70s, saying: “The cover with Iggy bare chested, in silver lamé trousers staring off into some rock n roll psycho void had me in a heartbeat.”
Word quickly spread about Moore’s nascent ventures into blogging, and Flowers & Cream is already getting a lot of comments and pageviews. Sonic Youth has just been announced as an addition to ATP New York in September—perhaps Moore could liveblog the entire event?
