Thurston Moore is to sell off a portion of his record collection at London shop World Of Echo.
The record shop on London's popular - and picturesque - Columbia Road opened just over a year ago, and already has a devoted crew of patrons.
Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore seems to be a fan, and the noted collector has decided to sell off some records through the shop.
Having amassed a formidable collection the guitarist has decided to sell off 300 records, which naturally include some rare, out of print, and difficult to find titles.
The event won't be backed up digitally - you have to go down to World Of Echo on October 5th to take part.
World Of Echo will be previewing the titles on their Instagram page.
**BIG NEWS KLAXON** Thrilled to announce that on Saturday 5th October we will be selling over 300 records sourced from the private collection of Thurston Moore. As would be expected given Moore's relationship to the underground and lifelong engagement with various music cultures, the selection compromises a broad range of genres, spanning multiple variants of jazz, noise, hardcore, black metal, ethnographic, punk and post-punk, no-wave, krautrock, ambient, electronic and the avant garde. Unsurprisingly, a number of the records are highly collectible or rarely seen. The collection wil not be availabe to purchase online and will only be accessible by visiting the shop. In advance of the day, we will be revealing a sample of some of the available titles via Instagram.
