If these songs had formed the bulk of a new Sonic Youth album I bet they'd have been received differently.
yeah, well thats because it doesn't sound like a shitty art school fart school project. you know, kim moaning and lee dicking around on a guitar and all.
in other words......sonic youth were nothing but an art school fart school college art project for kim and lee. besides, kim wasn't even an musician, but a so-called artist. and lee was a fucking pothead Deadhead dicking around on his axe.
Thruston was the true upper upper middle class geek that wanted to rock. the rest of sonic youth were just art school fart school fags trying to expand upon their art career. kim and lee never would've took punk rock seriously and would have continued to look at it through their postmodern ironic art filter if not for Thurston.
