Thurston's Favorite Tunes

We dig it when artists we love, talk about artists they love. Thurston Moore must have one of the best record collections out there as he has had an amazing career in music (we think he should get more respect).
Turns out earlier this year he chatted with the now defunct The Fly and Brooklyn Vegan reposted the list of his 38 favorite songs which you can see below. There are some obvious strong influences on him like No Wave bands and punk, but some classic surprises as well; with someone like Moore whose all over the musical map this varied list is semi expected.

Groups like Negative Approach who he recently played with Nirvana and his friends in Dinosaur Jr. but some unknown (to us) are on the list so we are excited to sift through record bins and youtube to hear them. Peep a few video samples of some songs after the list.
