deflinus 10.14.2011 07:38 PM

wow. didn't see that coming.

SonikJesus 10.14.2011 07:39 PM

fr real?

Dr. Eugene Felikson 10.14.2011 07:52 PM


the future of the band they've played in together since 1981 is unclear.


I definitely don't like the sound of that.

SuperCreep 10.14.2011 07:56 PM

i am so not believing this until we get some more sources. :'7(

Genteel Death 10.14.2011 07:58 PM

Didn't see this coming either.

Wow, ok, if anybody didn't already believe that EVERYTHING is so fucking crazy right now, well then there ya go.

All the best to both of them and thank you.

now theres a smack in the head. Good luck to em whatever they decide to do, they are a family first and foremost and that has to be their priority. Kinda stunned myself tbh, but yknow, i dont think now is the time for the funeral service, the wake, or the final 70 minute blowout version of The Diamond Sea, lets see what happens.

RanaldoNecro 10.14.2011 08:25 PM

many, Many many thanks for so much great music.

krastian 10.14.2011 08:28 PM

Well, if it's over, then The Eternal is a pretty fucking great final album to end a career on especially after playing as a band for 30 years.

hipster_bebop_junkie 10.14.2011 08:30 PM

I don't like these shit news at all. Infinite thanks for everything they've provided us with through the power of their music, and all the best wishes for the present and the future in all aspects of their lives even if this could mean the end of Sonic Youth.

I can't even begin to tell you how much joy Sonic Youth has brought to me since I was like 12.

the ikara cult 10.14.2011 08:43 PM

Wait everyone, maybe this whole terrible tragedy can yet be averted!


hevusa 10.14.2011 08:46 PM

sad sad stuff. I've been thinking love isn't real lately anyway...

E. Noisefield 10.14.2011 08:52 PM

I literally gasped and said "OH-NO-FUCK-FUCK!!!" when I read this.

I don't know what to say, other than to offer the condolence that "separated" doesn't always end in "divorced". :(

I can't believe it. I just can't believe it. Extremely sad.

Also- doesn't really bode well for the continued existence of the band.
Anyone else considered this?

They haven't announced they've split up yet. It's certainly disappointing to learn that a dream couple is splitting up. All the best to them. They seem like a relaxed pair of people when it comes to keep the personal where it should stay.

o'connor 10.14.2011 08:54 PM

honestly this does make me very sad, sy is my favorite band ever (except for the eternal), but do you think thurston would give me kim's number?
$10 bucks says t starts dating that chick from be yr own pet

deflinus 10.14.2011 08:55 PM

if sonic youth stays together, then this will be good inspiration for the next album
