Thurston Joseph Moore (born July 25, 1958 in Coral Gables, Florida) is an American musician best known as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist of the band Sonic Youth. He has participated in many solo and group collaborations outside of Sonic Youth, as well as running a small record label.

Record label and writings

Moore and other S.Y. members published the irreverent music zine Sonic Life. Moore runs the record label Ecstatic Peace!. Beginning in 1993, this label jointly released records with rock critic Byron Coley's label, Father Yod, as Ecstatic Yod Records.

Moore reviewed new music in Arthur Magazine. He manages the website Protest Records, named for its protest against music piracy laws. Moore was the editor/overseer of the 2005 book Mix Tape: The Art of Cassette Culture.
