Over at Arthur, some news about Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace Poetry Journal:

“Issue #10 of Ecstatic Peace Poetry Journal will be published and presented at White Columns as an expanded event/exhibition. A stapled issue will be created during the show. Pages from each of the ten journals will be exhibited as enlarged wall pieces, including the heretofore unpublished issue #9, [in keeping with the journals every-third-issue a theme issue, i.e., #3 was themed “cunnilingus,” #6 was “punk,”—with #9’s theme “pot”].”

The entire issue, and the live events are incredibly impressive, and I’m guessing all picked by Moore himself.  I’m interested that John Fahey is among the contributors, since Sonic Youth used one of the late guitar players paintings as the cover for their latest album, The Eternal.  Did Moore acquire some treasure of Fahey’s work?
