Glacial @ le poisson rouge

Thurston Moore has always been the guy who gets around, jamming with free jazz heavies or making noise with youngsters half his age, but Lee Ranaldo, his mate in Sonic guitar battery, has also been a consistent (if less prodigious) source of compelling audio documents. Veering from near-industrial loops of pealing feedback and heavy guitar to intimate pairings of acoustic guitar and poetry, Ranaldo's catalog is one of satisfying diversity. Maelstrom From Drift, the guitarist's latest, is a microcosm of Ranaldo's catalog as a whole, a collection that spans 11 years, a variety of collaborators, and a sundry mix of approaches and sounds.

Bagpipe player David Watson, drummer Tony Buck and Lee Ranaldo play as a trio called Glacial. Last night (Sept 15) they played at (le) poisson rouge here in NYC. More pictures from that show below...
