Gearing up for The Fly magazine awards on Feb. 6th where Thurston Moore will be getting a living legend award, the magazine asked Thurston which are his favorite songs-  He replied with 38 of his favorites. Why 38? We don’t know, Don’t care. While there are no surprises that The Raincoats and Teenage Jesus And The Jerks made the cut, we weren’t expecting to see Alice Cooper on there.  We love to see what inspires musicians, if you do the leg work you almost always discover something mind blowing that opens up all these doors. Full list here and a gallery of our favorite Thurston images here.

King Khan and the Shrines by Nicole Fara Silver

King Khan and the Shrines by Nicole Fara Silver/ The Hell Gate

King Khan and all of the Shrines were gracious enough to let us photograph them before they played a blistering set at Webster Hall NYC the night before Halloween. Gallery viewable here. We are digging how each photo is pretty spot on with the band members’ personalities. This may be the first time The Shrines have all been photographed together. Special thanks to Simon Wojan for being on top of everything and generally awesome.
