I dug up some old CD's recently with 'Sonic Nurse' being among them. I was almost surprised by how much I enjoyed listening to it!

"Pattern Recognition" is one of their best songs out of the later era. It's like they injected "Cross The Breeze" into "Silver Rocket."

Been on a real SY kick recently, particularly Bad Moon Rising and Sister.

Also, the live album Smart Bar - Chicago (Live 1985) (which is incorrectly dated as 1995 on Spotify) is so good. Everything is a bit faster and intense. I would have loved to see them around that era.

This is also good.

I love both of those. That would have been a great period to see. I saw Kim’s Ovation hanging on the wall at the met a couple days ago.

I had Thurston on my radio show yesterday. He's in Milwaukee to perform the live soundtrack to James Nares' film Street tonight at the Oriental Theater. We talked for 45 min about this specific project, No Wave, collaboration with artists, musicians and non musicians, his upcoming album and other stuff. The interview starts at about the 1 hour 5 minute mark.

He couldn't have been nicer; super relaxed, friendly, generous with his time. It was pretty incredible to get to talk to him.

Damn. The target Bean too...

Watching that band makes me appreciate them so much as they play Sonic Youth music yet never listened to the band Sonic Youth.

Such great aggressive guitar playing.

That's pretty great.

wf: he changes the line "very I'm in a band ... with knee pads". That's my favorite line in the song.

my brilliant opinion for today is I now think of the Thousand Leaves album as their 2nd great classic album after Daydream Nation. If you chop out the Kim G caterwauling tracks that is. Leaving you with 45 mins of alltime #2 rainy day SY classic

I’ve recently reassessed the post Thousand Leaves albums. Whereas before I thought NYC Ghosts and Flowers blew fat donkey dicks, I now realize it’s really good, a return to their earlier experimental form. This is the first record after their gear was stolen so they were searching for their sound for the first time in years. I probably listened to it twice when it came out in 2000 and shelved it. I also had a false memory of Thurston rapping on it, which he definitely does not do. Murray Street and Sonic Nurse are also much better than I remember. I’ve still never heard Rather Ripped or the Eternal but I just bought them off discogs and will be checking them out post haste. I saw them a few times in their last decade, up through 2005 or so when they played Pitchfork, and they had just lost me then. I guess I just needed some time to accept what they’d grown into.

Man, I think I really, really agree with you. The tightest one, the most consistently rad. Some dumbshit lyrics here and there, but do we go to SY albums for lyrics? I don't!

I think I agree with you, Eliya.

ELIYA! I'm gonna listen to Sonic Nurse again today to see where it lands. I've always liked the SOUND of that album a lot, but I can't for the life of me remember any songs right now. Like, zip, no songs are coming to my mind.

Will report back.
