TALL FIRS RELEASE THURSTON MOORE COVER AS PART OF ATP FESTIVAL PROJECT
Tall Firs have released a cover of Thurston Moore’s Fri/End as part of a pre-ATP Festival project ahead of their appearance at next month’s festival in Minehead, Butlins, with Moore (of Sonic Youth fame). The band will release a free downloadable cover version of a track by another artist on the festival line-up, with the fifth and final track coming out the day before the event.
Tall Firs are Dave Mies and Aaron Mullan. They have been pals since junior high school. Starting in 1990, they literally taught each other how to play guitar, wood-shedding shoulder to shoulder. Today they continue to refine a creole guitar language that is pretty much a two-man weave between those same disparate destinations. Over the past 10 years the Firs have shared stages with Thurston Moore, Silver Apples, Jeff Mangum, Shellac, Awesome Color, Emily Haines, Sonic Youth, Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks, Magic Markers, Kurt Vile, Celebration and a host of others.
The group will join the likes of The Magnetic Fields, Joanna Newsom, Low, Sebadoh, Boredoms, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and more, to play at Jeff Mangum’s ATP Festival, which takes place from March 9-11. Tickets are still available, from £175, at HERE.
