YOKOKIMTHURSTON

VIDEO (above): Yoko Ono, Kim Gordon & Thurston Moore – Mulberry
Live at The Orpheum Theater, Los Angeles, 2nd October 2010, as part of YOKO ONO’s ‘We Are Plastic Ono Band’ concert with Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band and Special Guests.

“Mulberry is an ideal piece of noise music. As it is freeform, we are able to bring out maximum energy to wake up the world. I did it a few times with Thurston. But Kim’s involvement gave a new dimension to it. We soon got the idea of doing an album together, and we have – called YOKOKIMTHURSTON.”
Yoko Ono, June 2012

“This is NYC avant garde convergence at its finest. The idea of a meeting between Yoko Ono, Kim Gordon & Thurston Moore is so perfect, so obvious, the only shock is that it didn’t happen earlier. Recorded in 2011 at Manhattan’s Sear Sound, the album features lead vocals by Yoko, with backing vocals & guitars by Kim & Thurston. It’s a wild collision of song-form, poetics, free-rock & classic glossolalic ecstasy. Yoko has not allowed herself to sound this raw since the earliest recordings of the Plastic Ono Band. There’s a remarkably empathic & comfortable quality to the sound. The 3 communicate as though they’d been playing together forever.”
