Thurston Moore's Birthday, suggested by 88Nine supporter, Shan.

While Thurston Moore's iconic band Sonic Youth is no longer, his legacy looms large on the Indie rock world, with over a dozen albums over thirty+ years. There aren't a lot bands who'd dare to take on the complicated sound of SY but Japanese band KOTOKO were up to the task. Thanks to Shan for the suggestion.

"Dirty Boots" - Sonic Youth's original.
