Thurston Moore Nearly Blanked Actor Pitt's Band

SONIC YOUTH star THURSTON MOORE almost didn't sign MICHAEL PITT's band PAGODA to his Ecstatic Media record label, because he was distrustful of an actor playing rock. When Moore saw LAST DAYS star Pitt play alongside bandmates RYAN DONOWHO and LUCA AMENDOLARA, he soon overcame his reservations. He tells website PitchforkMedia.com, "I had no interest in an actor who has a band. "But then I realized he was just some (New) Jersey kid who moved to New York to play in a band, and the whole acting thing was just something he fell into. Music was his real deal." Pagoda's debut album HOUSE OF WORSHIP is set for release in June (06).
