Sonic Youth - Boredoms Hybrid Group Playing in Japan

Thurston Moore and Jim O'Rourke have a new side project!

From a Japan Times online article:

For two shows, [The Evens will] be joined by Blind Beast, an improvisational noise-rock supergroup made up of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, producer-musician Jim O'Rourke and Osaka's own Yoshimi, the drummer for The Boredoms.

Since Blind Beast have not released any albums, nobody knows what they sound like, but that may be the point. Like discovering an unheard-of gem in a used record bin, the main thrill of seeing them live will be the shock of delight at stumbling upon the unknown.

Blind Beast is also a three-character Japanese horror movie. Here's the synopsis from KFC CINEMA:

Story: Michio, a blind sculptor, takes interest in a young model named Aki when he hears of her stunning body and inspects an art exhibit featuring photographs and a sculpture of the beauty. Disguised as her masseuse, he enters her apartment and kidnaps her with help from his mother. Aki is then dropped into a hell of art and lust while locked in his studio as his ultimate model, facing new depths of human behavior.
