Ecstatic Peace Library will open for six weeks in Stoke Newington starting this week

Thurston Moore is teaming up with two friends to launch a new pop-up record shop in North London.

Ecstatic Peace Library is the brainchild of Moore, underground comic artist Edwin Pouncey (AKA Savage Pencil) and record store and label owner Pete Flanagan of Soho Music and Zippo Records. It will function as a record store, bookshop, art gallery and underground newspaper outpost, stocking vinyl, posters, art, vintage t-shirts and music memorabilia.

The shop will be based at 96 Church Street in Stoke Newington and will open every day from 11am - 6pm, starting tomorrow (February 4) and ending on March 14. Tomorrow's grand opening will see the shop open until 9pm.

In September of last year, Moore collaborated with East London record shop World Of Echo to sell more than 300 records from his private collection.
