Sweet Shine is one of the band’s best songs.

The rest of it just jangle rocks the fuck out.

Going back to the original topic, "Female Mechanic Now On Duty" has always been a favorite - since the first time I heard it, performed instrumentally on that PBS show in summer '97. I loved the riff and all the wildness around it, Steve's thumping beat, the big one-chord noise break, and then that fractured clean riff with Lee's ring-modulated squawks echoing, a new chord with a new beat, Steve shaking that tiny maraca, and then Thurston shaking the ground with his Blue Box bursts. The tension in that one-note climax builds to a perfect finish.

Then the album came out and Kim played the riff all different. What the..? Yeah, I'm still only slightly less bitter 20 years later...it just takes away from the pounding menace that the live version has and gives it a more laidback feel. I love her vocal, and the rest of the song (including that very climax taken from the PBS show) is perfection.

They never played it live with this alternate rhythm, before or after the album was released, so I've just always found it odd that they went with such a different vibe for the album.

All that said, it's still one of my top go-to songs for sitting outside and listening to music, particularly on a rainy fall day like today. Which leads me to a weird topic - do you segregate SY albums by weather/time of day/etc? My friend and I always had a joke about listening to "Ghost Bitch" walking downtown in the early afternoon, how inappropriate it feels. I definitely link certain albums to certain moods, but some are more versatile than others.

Fuck, shut up!

Sidenote: it's very refreshing, to me at least, to encounter LGBTQ+ people who don't adhere to the typical boring music tastes that community too often seems to follow like an obligation or an inevitable trend. I've met dozens of gay people (before anyone gets smartass about it, I don't mention this as "trolling for a badge", m'kay; I'm just stating a fact) and it's always the usual shit suspects: Madonna, Cher, bullcrap. Why can't they go for Hüsker Dü? Two thirds of the fuckin' band were gay! Why can't they go for Laura Nyro?

Just sayin'...

My first gay roommate (I’ve had, like, six) got turned onto Sonic Youth after hearing me listen to “Silver Rocket.”

He was into Aphex Twin and Trail of Dead and Amon Tobin and Nine Inch Nails and (blech) Smashing Pumpkins but sion got really into punk. We saw SY live together a few times.

My second gay roommate (who’s married to a woman and goes by a “female” name now but remains queer), was into Velvets, early REM, Wilco, Televisoon... got me into Television, actually... Talking Heads. Sonic Youth, Husker Du, Modern Lovers... his collection was like mine without the industrial, hardcore and hip-hop. He’s basically my musical soulmate and he’d have have set you straight on this misconception long ago.

Maybe you’re just hanging out with a certain group of gay people?

Anyway, not giving you shit, just funny how different our experiences have been.

All of my fellow adolescent queers in the local area listen to mid-2000s pop-punk. I swear to god, if I have to listen to one more conversation about Panic! at the Disco...

I’m trying to imagine it but I can get no further than “Panic at the disco! is a band.”
