Sonic Youth – Debut TV appearance – 100 %

This is Sonic Youth’s first network TV appearance, on where else but the Letterman show, promoting their great 1992 LP Dirty!

Wonderful music. Wonderfully cool performance! Man, was Kim hot back in the day, or what?!

The performance ends up typically enough in total chaos! One of the many things that Kurt Cobain ripped off from Sonic Youth!

This classic moment from one of our favourite groups goes out to the guy who left a priceless comment on an earlier Sonics post!

In response to a joke to the effect that these young kids from a new band have a future, GW Bush Junior Junior replies “Dude, sonic youth has been around since 1983 … not a new band at all “

What? Next this guy’ll be telling us that the Beatles have broken up! Please don’t f*cking tell us that!!

And no, actually, dude, they were formed in 1981!

We’ve been huge fans of these peerless rock innovators for way too many years than we care to remember now! In fact, the first Sonics LP we bought was the amazing EVOL which blew our little minds away back in 86! We’ve got em all since then with favourites probably being Daydream Nation, Murray Street and Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star.

It’s amazing how creative this seminal group has been for so long. And still remains!

“100%” was the first single from Dirty, released in 1992 on DGC. The song was dedicated to Joe Cole, who was killed by a gunman in 1991.

Here’s the vid. Quality not exactly pristine. But so f*cking what!

Can never forget you – the way you rock the girls
they move a world and love you – a blast in the underworld
I stick a knife in my head – thinking ’bout your eyes
but now that you been shot dead – I’ve got a new surprise

I been waitin’ for you just to say
he’s off to check his mind
but all I know is you got no money
but that’s got nothing to do with a good time

can you forgive the boy who – shot you in the head
or should you get a gun and – go and get revenge?
a 100% of my love – up to you true star
it’s hard to believe you took off – I always thought you’d go far

but I’ve been around the world a million times
and all you men are slime
it’s goin’ to my head, goodbye I am dead
wastewood rockers is time for cryin’, hey!

Sonic Youth – SYR 7 & SYR 8 (2008)

https://i1.wp.com/jarsonic.net/imagenes/art034-sonic_youth.jpg
Sonic Youth – SYR 7 & SYR 8 (2008)
These are from a brand new band of kids called “Sonical Youth” or something!

They sound OK! I’ve a feeling these youngsters will go places!

Both of these Sonic Youth Recordings series albums were released in 2008.

Sonic Youth – SYR7: J’Accuse Ted Hughes
April 2008
SYR
SYR7: J’Accuse Ted Hughes is the seventh release in American group Sonic Youth’s SYR series.

It was released only on vinyl – the first in the series to receive no compact disc release – and features two songs: “J’Accuse Ted Hughes”, and “Agnès B. Musique”.

Tracklisting

  1. J’Accuse Ted Hughes – 22:53
  2. Agnès B. Musique – 18:15

LINK – MEDIAFIRE

Sonic Youth w/Jim O’Rourke, Mats Gustaffson (Sax), Merzbow (Noise) – SYR8: Andre Sider Af Sonic Youth
July 2008
SYR

SYR8: Andre Sider Af Sonic Youth is an album by Sonic Youth with Mats Gustafsson and Merzbow. It is the eighth release in the SYR series and was released on July 28, 2008.

Strangely, it was not released on vinyl.

The album title is in Danish and obviously means “Other sides of Sonic Youth”.

This is taken from a live show which features full band improv.

The players leave the stage one at a time until Merzbow is left. Then he makes some noises. Then he leaves!

Very zen!

Andre Sider af Sonic Youth – 57:32

THE TOP 10 LADIES OF INDIE ROCK?

Some strange choices in here! Oh, the horror!

Some of em did look OK a few decades back, I guess!

He almost put Patti Smith in! Now, we love Patti. And she did look scorching hot back in 1775! But …. !

From http://berkeleyplace.wordpress.com/2007/05/16/the-top-10-ladies-of-indie-rock/

Okay, so before I even begin I want to say: I’m gunshy about lists now. I love (most of) my readers, but some of y’all are BRUTAL. You can see for yourself the comments on the 25 Best Indie Rock Albums post, and that’s not even counting the e-mailed death threats (yeah, actual death threats) because “I” didn’t include Yo La Tengo/Mars Volta/ whoeverthefuckthepersonliked.

Listen, guys, I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again, but this time I’ll do it with numbered paragraphs for improved readability:

1. My readers voted and these are the results, I didn’t pick these myself.

2. It’s music. If you like it, buy it. If you don’t, don’t.

3. This is not MY list.

4. This is not MY list.

5. This is all supposed to be fun, guys.

6. Just because you’re on the internet, doesn’t give you the right to be an anonymous shit. Pretend I’m in the room with you. If you wanna be rude, then pretend I’m in the room with you naked. Fucking your girlfriend.

7. This is not MY list.

8. Let’s keep it positive.

9. You all voted for these ladies, it’s not my list.

10. Got it?

All right. Even having said that, I’ll bet one of the first three comments I get on this tells me I’m dumb for not including Great Girl Who Is Better Than All Of These Girls Combined.

I got just under a hundred votes–far fewer than I got for my top 25 indie rock albums–so this is an even less representative sample. Here’s the results.

10. Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Hyperballad (Bjork cover) (live, acoustic version) – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Kelly Clarkson vs. Karen O (Aggro mash up). This is perhaps my favorite mash up ever.

Maps (acoustic version)-Yeah Yeah Yeahs


9. PJ Harvey.

Sadly, all I own of Ms. Harvey is RIAA released material. But here’s Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers talking about PJ Harvey.


8. Sleater Kinney.

Most of the votes for Sleater Kinney were for the band, by name, which consists of 3 gals, but Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein also got votes individually. The Washington power trio got started on Chainsaw Records but has since been signed to Sub Pop.

You’re No Rock and Roll Fun

Harvest Moon (Neil Young cover)-Pearl Jam and Sleater Kinney

One Beat (live)

Words and Guitar


7. Imogen Heap

https://i0.wp.com/www.laist.com/attachments/la_nick/imogen2-thumb.jpg

I was surprised to see this grammy-nominated Essex-born singer/songwriter here on this list. First off, most of her work (solo and with Frou Frou) has been on major labels. Second, I just had no idea trip hop was so popular.

Have You Got It In You-Imogen Heap


6. Neko Case.

I’m a big fan of the The New Pornographers, and, of course, her solo and Sadies work is hot, too. She’s being sold at Starbucks now, but don’t hold that against her.

The Laws Have Changed-New Pornographers (video)

Furnace Room Lullaby-Neko Case (video)

Stay A Little Longer-Jon Langford and Neko Case

Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis (tom Waits cover)-Neko Case


5. Emily Haines (The Metric).

Emily Haines definitely made my top 10 list, based solely on her work with The Metric, but her new material with Soft Skeleton is pretty hot, too. Not to mention the fact that she’s a Broken Social Scene contributor.

Expecting to Fly-Emily Haines (Neil Young cover)

Pink-Emily Haines. From her rare, out-of-print solo album.

Combat Baby-Metric. One of the most perfect pop songs ever crafted.



4. Leslie Feist.

Yes, another Broken Social Scene member. But on her own, she’s so much more. She just released her major-label debut and guess what? It’s pretty lame. Her indie stuff is much better. Go buy some of it!

L’Amour Ne Dure Pas Toujours-Feist

Major Label Debut (live version)-Feist (BSS)

3 and 2. Kim Deal and Cat Power/Chan Marshall. (tie)

Cat Power.

Cat Power, real name Charlyn “Chan” Marshall, is a Georgia-born singer/songwriter who plays both piano and guitar. She’s been an indie fave for a long time, with her last release, The Greatest, topping “best of” lists for 2006. She’s on Matador.

Where Is My Love (video)

Crazy (Gnarls Barkley cover)-Cat Power

The Greatest-Cat Power

Nude as the News (video)

Baby Doll-Cat Power

Cross Bones Style-Cat Power (remix)

I Found a Reason-Cat Power


Kim Deal.

To tally the votes for Kim Deal, I included all votes for her various bands. And she’s been in a lot. She started out in The Pixies, before forming The Breeders with Tanya Donnelly (who also got quite a few votes, but not enough to crack this list). Her time with The Breeders led to a few alternative radio hits, like Cannonball and The Last Splash, as well as a great group of albums. She couldn’t stand success, though, it seems, so she quit and formed The Amps, whose “Pacer” album wasn’t too popular but was as good as anything she’d done with The Breeders. In 2002 the Breeders reformed, releasing Title TK. I don’t know what she’s been up to since then.

A few tracks from an ‘03 Breeders show:

The Theme From Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Trouper (Iron Maiden cover) (sung by audience)

I Just Wanna Get Along

I Don’t Care About You (Fear cover)

Happiness is a Warm Gun (Beatles cover)

1. Kim Gordon

Of Sonic Youth. One person wrote that Kim is clearly the “most influential” of all indie rock chicks. Again, depending on your definition of “Indie Rock” you might agree. I do.

Mary Christ-Sonic Youth (live)-Sonic Youth

Free City Rhymes theme-Sonic Youth

Dirty Boots (live)-Sonic Youth

Made in the U.S.A. (1986 outtake)-Sonic Youth


Honorable Mentions:

These folks got quite a few votes, but not enough . . .

Nico, Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), Liz Phair, Patti Smith, Regina Spektor, Meg White . . .

Sonic Youth – Hits Are For Squares (2008)


Sonic Youth – Hits Are For Squares (2008)


Strange as it may sounds, here’s a Sonic Youth’s ‘Hits’ package – plus of course one brand new exclusive Youth track – from Starbucks!!
What? Starbucks?

It seems really bizarre that Starbucks are venturing more and more into the music business and moreso that Sonic Youth – who always portray the image of being stalwartly independent – would in any way be associated with such a horrid multinational chain.

It seems really bizarre that Starbucks are venturing more and more into the music business and moreso that Sonic Youth – who always portray the image of being stalwartly independent – would in any way be associated with such a horrid multinational chain.

What’s next. A Thurston Moore Burger at MacDonalds?

This was released June 10 exclusively in Starbucks stores in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., as well as online.

In addition to the exclusive Sonic Youth track “Slow Revolution,” the limited-edition CD features Sonic Youth songs, handpicked by Radiohead, Chloe Sevigny, Dave Eggers, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Beck, Flea, David Cross and various other enthusiasts.

Participants have also written about their selections for the liner notes.

Of course, it’s a magnificent selection of songs. It would be very difficult indeed not to be able to compile a decent crop of SY songs! There are so fucking many! Even Eddie Vedder couldn’t fuck up (although his choice is soooo obvious!)

//www.billboard.com/billboard/photos/art/s/sonic_youth_02l.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.“I guess, for some, Sonic Youth represents something that they don’t really equate with Starbucks,” Moore told Billboard last year. “But I kind of like the absurdity of it. Sonic Youth has always, in a way, made itself available to the super mainstream.”

“In a way, Sonic Youth has a branded name,” he continued. “People know the name, but not necessarily our music, which might be a little too outsider for some. And when they do hear a little something, it doesn’t tell the whole story. I thought it would be interesting to have a CD available in a store like Starbucks where the casual consumer can sort of have access to [our music] more readily.”

“From my experience nothing gets you going like putting on ‘Teenage Riot’ at full volume … 0 to 60, standing still,” Vedder writes of his choice. “Play it twice and you will have cleaned the house and shoveled the walk. In a car you’ll find yourself doing 95 and getting pulled over before the first chorus.”

Sonic Youth has a few shows lined up this summer, including a July 4 gig with the reunited Feelies at New York’s Battery Park.

https://i0.wp.com/www.clashmusic.com/files/images/SonicYouth11.jpg

From Billboard;

//www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.bloggingstocks.com/media/2007/06/sbux.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. In a recent interview, Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore mentioned that the band needed to record a new song for a Starbucks compilation. Within minutes of his remarks hitting the Internet, chat rooms and fan sites were awash in cries of “foul” and “sellouts.”

For many, the idea of the ultimate indie art band getting into bed with the ultimate mainstream lifestyle brand was pure blasphemy. “I never thought of it as being more radical than recording for Universal Music,” Moore tells Billboard. “They’re both corporations that have ties to things that people find sort of problematic.”

The compilation in question, “Hits Are for Squares,” is a co-release by Starbucks Entertainment and Universal Special Markets. Scheduled for release early next year, it will be sold at select Starbucks locations in eight U.S. markets (including New York, Chicago and Seattle) as well as online at hearmusic.com.

In addition to one new, exclusive track, the limited-edition CD features Sonic Youth songs, handpicked by Chloe Sevigny, Dave Eggers, Michelle Williams and other enthusiasts. Participants will also each write a few words, explaining their selections, for the liner notes.

“I guess, for some, Sonic Youth represents something that they don’t really equate with Starbucks,” Moore says. “But I kind of like the absurdity of it. Sonic Youth has always, in a way, made itself available to the super mainstream.”

“In a way, Sonic Youth has a branded name,” he continues. “People know the name, but not necessarily our music, which might be a little too outsider for some. And when they do hear a little something, it doesn’t tell the whole story. I thought it would be interesting to have a CD available in a store like Starbucks where the casual consumer can sort of have access to [our music] more readily.”

Sonic Youth has yet to record its own contribution to the compilation, but was recently in the studio recording an unidentified Bob Dylan cover that may be used in Todd Haynes’ upcoming film “I’m Not There.”

Moore is also looking ahead to the Sept. 18 release of a new solo album, “Trees Outside the Academy,” which he will support with some live shows.

“Hopefully, I’ll get together the group that plays on the record, including Steve Shelley,” he says. “Samara Lubelski from Brooklyn plays the electric violin, which acts as a second instrument on almost every track. J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr. plays some killer guitar all over the record. And I play all the acoustic guitar and bass on it. It’s a pretty heavy song-based record.”

V.A. – The Bridge: A Tribute To Neil Young (1989)

V.A. – The Bridge: A Tribute To Neil Young (1989)
Mp3 @ 320kbps

Let’s start with a slight segue and a rhetorical question! How do we know Sonic Youth are the greatest band out there. Well, we start by checking out their sublime covers on tributes like this, where their “Computer Age” is just fucking sublime! Check out too the I’m Not There OST, where their cover of the title track is perfect. I mean they even made the fucking Carpenters sound good with their version of “Superstar” years back!

THE BRIDGE, featuring a wide palette of alternative-identified artists covering Neil Young songs, wasn’t the first tribute album ever made, but it was the first one anyone really noticed, and it may well have been the best.

Its success, which had something to do with the fact that the artists were all rabid Young fans with palpable ideas about what to do with his songs, led to an outpouring of other tribute albums, most of which have been far less successful. Often they included – or, in one case, feted – the artists here, who became instant superstars on the tribute circuit. But the superstar on THE BRIDGE remained Neil Young, whose songs withstand both the weirdest and most loving of interpretations.

Among the former are Dinosaur Jr.’s very fast, very bratty punk take on the folky standby “Lotta Love” (aided by a guest singer who sounds mysteriously like Daniel Johnston) and Bongwater’s tape-loop-aided version of “Mr. Soul” (a song Young himself has done many times and many ways).

Others play it straight. The Pixies’ “Winterlong,” featuring one of the few recorded duets between Black Francis and Kim Deal, is a nearly perfect pop song; Soul Asylum’s “Barstool Blues” sounds like a lost classic of flannel-shirted rock; and guitarist Henry Kaiser (performing with singers David and Rosanne Lindley) squeezes every bit of junkie juice out of his downer medley of “The Needle And The Damage Done” (on piano) and “Tonight’s The Night” (with full band).

Wonderful songs and a wonderful tribute to a wonderful artist.

I seem to be using the word wonderful rather a lot today. Well, I guess that’s just wonderful !


Old man lying
by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking
from the weight of the load
And the building scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping
down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying
by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Blind man running
through the light
of the night
With an answer in his hand,
Come on down
to the river of sight
And you can really understand,
Red lights flashing
through the window
in the rain,
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White cane lying
in a gutter in the lane,
If you’re walking home alone.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Don’t let it bring you down
It’s only castles burning,
Just find someone who’s turning
And you will come around.

Lydia Lunch – Widowspeak



Lydia Lunch – Widowspeak (1998, compilation)

Here’s the pioneer of indie, the princess of punkdom, the queen of New York, the chief cunt of confrontationalism, the flame of Fingeredom, the Nosferatu of No Wave, the great Lydia Lunch!

After arriving in New York City at the age of 16, Lunch moved into a large communal household of artists and musicians in NYC, including Kitty Bruce, daughter of Lenny Bruce. Soon after she earned the surname “Lunch” by regularly stealing lunches for her artist friends.

After befriending the ‘godfathers of punk’ Suicide at Max’s Kansas City, she founded the short-lived but influential No Wave band Teenage Jesus & the Jerks in 1976 with her artistic partner, No Wave punk-funk-jazz musician James Chance. Both appeared on the seminal No Wave compilation No New York. Lunch later appeared on two songs on Chance’s album Off White (credited to James White and the Blacks; Lunch used the pseudonym “Stella Rico”) in 1978.

She appeared in two films directed by the husband and wife film-making team of Scott B and Beth B; In the short film Black Box (1978) she played an unnamed torturer, and in the feature length, neo-noir thriller Vortex (1983) she played a private detective named “Angel Powers”. During this time, she also appeared in a number of films by Vivienne Dick, including She Had her Gun All Ready (1978) and Beauty Becomes The Beast (1979), co starring with Pat Place.

In the mid-’80s she formed her own recording and publishing company called “Widowspeak” on which she continues to release a slew of her own material from songs to spoken word.

A self-avowed ‘confrontationalist’ identified by the Boston Phoenix as “one of the 10 most influential performers of the ’90s”, Lunch’s solo career featured collaborations with musicians such as J. G. Thirlwell, Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore, Nick Cave, Billy Ver Plank, Steven Severin, Robert Quine, Sadie Mae, Rowland S. Howard, Michael Gira, The Birthday Party, Einstürzende Neubauten, Sonic Youth, Die Haut, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, and Black Sun Productions. She also acted in, wrote, and directed underground films, sometimes collaborating with underground filmmaker and musician Richard Kern (including several films such as Fingered in which she performed unsimulated sex acts), and more recently has recorded and performed as a spoken word artist, again collaborating with such artists as Exene Cervenka, Henry Rollins, Don Bajema, Hubert Selby Jr., and Emilio Cubeiro, as well as authoring both traditional books and comix (with award-winning graphic novel artist Ted McKeever).

Simon Reynolds, author of Rip It Up and Start Again : Postpunk 1978-1984, wrote: “And although ‘affection’ is possibly an odd word to use in reference to a bunch of nihilists, I do feel fond of the No Wave people. … there are great moments throughout Lydia Lunch’s long discography.”

Thirlwell who’s unique genius has enriched many of my musical endeavours.”
