Unique selling point

As has been made abundantly clear over the years - including relatively recently with his 38 favourite songs of all time and his appearance on Damian Abraham's podcast Turned Out A Punk - Thurston Moore has both an encyclopaedic knowledge of music and great taste. So what to make of the fact that he's flogging more than 300 of his LPs via London record shop World Of Echo? No reason has been given for his decision to dispense with the albums, which apparently include a "broad range of genres, spanning multiple variants of jazz, noise, hardcore, black metal, ethnographic, punk and post-punk, no-wave, krautrock, ambient, electronic and the avant garde". Maybe it's not a comment on their quality; perhaps he's just downsizing - or pre-emptively making space for new purchases.
