THURSTON MOORE: The beanpole avant-guitar fanboy behind Sonic Youth gets historical, metaphorical and confessional with Keith Cameron.

BLONDIE: They emerged from the boho punk grot of ’70s New York to revolutionise the charts, but where did it all go wrong? Will Hodgkinson speaks to Debbie, Chris and the gang about the highs and lows of pop stardom.
