THURSTON BY TWILIGHT

Last October, Sonic ‘Youths’, Thurston and Kim, announced that they were separating after 27 years of marriage. While most dudes might have to sleep on the sofa, or if they’re unlucky, move out, Thurston has moved out into a new subgenre, becoming the latest addition to black metal’s veritable Harlem Globetrotters, Twilight.

Already boasting a pentagram-studded lineup, boasting members of Atlas Moth, Isis, Nachtmystium,  Xasthur and Krieg, Twilight were quick to welcome Thurston into the fold – possibly in an ambitious attempt to expand their audience beyond basement-dwelling D&D enthusiasts to, someday, chicks even.

(Moore also now fronts new band  Chelsea Light Moving (Matador).
