“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.”



Yoko, Kim & Thurston – MULBERRY (live)

Here’s an exclusive look at Yoko, Kim & Thurston’s 14-minute version of Yoko’s song Mulberry.

“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.”
