Following The Thurston Moore Band’s (James Sedwards of Nought – guitar, Deb Googe of My Bloody Valentine – bass and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth – drums) recent impromptu set at Café Oto in London, England, the group announce their first UK (& European) tour taking place soon after their dates in the US and Canada.

Uncut magazine were in attendance for the band’s first show in London and had this to say about the live performance:

“The album – which is due out in October – is excellent, and these live versions are muscular and digressive. Great songs, and a sense that Moore has found fresh inspiration in N16 with his latest, formidable accomplices.”
