keep ramblin my man.
sonic youth have always used elemtns of pop structure, but to call their music pop is a disservice.
Kim Gordon said it best.
and I paraphrase of course
Pop is an attempt to perfect an old genre, an attempt to craft a beautiful melody and song from what are established musical norms.
Rock is about innovation, to create beautiful music that does not require perfection or expertise, to craft songs that are visceral and raw and unpolished and unrefined. In other words, rock is a big FUCK YOU to established musical order.
SONIC YOUTH IS ROCK
