I felt like this was going to be something to read, but I lost interest here: "on a fucking acoustic guitar of all things"
so you're being closeminded about being closeminded? sensitive about acoustic instruments much?
We (the SYG) are all talking around the inevitable and why not face it? I really do not want to see SY in 10 years playing the halftime super bowl, or whatever sad shit rotten meat like the rolling stones have to do.
I love all SY music, even that which I badmouth, but I also love the IDEA of SONIC YOUTH, that a band can do what they have done, and for two of them to do it as a long-standing marriage, with the ability of all to do side projects as they saw fit, always exploring, always trying new shit. Never really making music for mass consumption and regurgitation.
That idea lives forever for me, regardless of band breakup, Kim Thurston break up.
Nothing lasts forever
Nothing stays great forever either. Sonic Youth have not crossed the UN-greatness line yet. I hope they never do.
