Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore plays first gig with new band Chelsea Light Moving
Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore played his first gig with new band Chelsea Light Moving last week.

The four-piece, which consists of Moore along with Keith Wood on guitar, Samara Lubelski on bass and John Moloney on drums, played their debut show at Brooklyn's 285 Kent, Spin reports.

They played an eight-song set, presumably made up of tracks from their forthcoming album, which they are currently recording and will be released on Matador.

The band have previously unveiled two tracks – 'Burroughs', inspired by the last words of beat poet William Burroughs and 'Groovy & Linda', which draws inspiration from the late-'60s East Village hippie couple whose flower-power dreams ended in a double homicide.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Sonic Youth would be releasing a new live album, recorded in August 1985 at Chicago’s Smart Bar. The album was recorded on a four-track tape recorder and will be released on November 14 via the band's label Goofin' Records.

'Hallowe'en'
'Death Valley ’69'
'Intro/Brave Men Run(In My Family)'
'I Love Her All The Time'
'Ghost Bitch'
'I’m Insane'
'Kat ‘N’ Hat'
'Brother James'
'Kill Yr Idols'
'Secret Girl'
'Flower'
'The Burning Spear'
'Expressway To Yr Skull'
'Making The Nature Scene'


In October last year, Moore and his partner Kim Gordon announced they would be separating after 27 years of marriage. ??The announcement raised doubts over the future of Sonic Youth after Matador revealed that plans for the band remained "uncertain".
