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.
