Put Me In, Coachmen

One absolute truism of the digital age: on the Internet, nothing is rare. Hence this posting of something I would’ve paid, easily, $30+ for 20 years ago. This is really just for all the hardcore, Sonic Youth/Thurston Moore, oh-shit-gotta-have-it people. There’s no way you’ll ever have everything Moore worked on but I know that the more you get the better you feel. So here is a 1979 recording of Thurston Moore with the original lineup of New York band The Coachmen.
(That photo is Moore in 1978.)

    you’re right. I do feel better.

    I’d always been curious as to what the Coachmen sounded like, esp. after reading Alex Foege’s ‘Confusion Is Next’

    I’ve seen this post a couple of times and keep meaning to check out the tracks, but I just noticed the John Fogerty reference. Nicely done.
