Listen: Thurston Moore takes on ‘man-boys of the USA government’ with new single ‘Mx Liberty’

Former Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore today debuted a political broadside called “Mx Liberty,” a new single co-written with poet Radieux Radio that will be released on 7-inch vinyl on Feb. 19 in conjunction with what he’s calling “Not My President’s Day.”

The song, described by record label Blank Editions as “a punk rock broadside to the current man-boys of the USA government in response to their mockery of democracy,” features members of Moore’s band: Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine), James Sedwards (Nøught) and Jem Doulton (Dead Days Beyond Help).

The single will be backed by a cover of Metal Urbain’s 1977 song “Panik.”

It can be pre-ordered now via Blank Editions.

  • Wow,that’s deep. What a principled statement. Thurston, and all the other musicians from my time, are getting a wee bit old to cling to this absurd notion that they belong to the good team, and the other is, well, from hell. They are both equally fatuous, feckless, vain, and wildly incompetent. They are so arrogant that they truly believe it is their birth right to remain in DC (America’s largest campus) for the better part of their lives. They may need to relive the glory days of their youth, but we need to grow up and move on.
