This will probably always stand as my favorite SY album. Their show at the Avalon in Boston in 2004 is probably still the best show I've ever seen, so the memory of Unmade Bed, Paper Cup Exit, Stones and Pattern Recognition lingers pretty loudly.

Long Live Sonic Nurse, I guess, would be the central thesis of this post.

Pattern Recognition was impressive live, too. Lee leaned out into the crowd with his Orange Jazzblaster. It was sex.

Its probably the Sonic youth album thats affected me most emotionally, Unmade bed, Golden Blue, Stones, Dude Ranch Nurse and Paper cup exit really struck a chord with me at the time. I had a chance to see them at Brixton Academy in September 04 which was before id bought Nurse, i wish to god i had done now as if it happened now it would probably be the greatest gig ever for me.
Ive STILL not seen Sonic youth play!

Same song x10. Poor production, too. One of SY's worst albums.

But sometimes the feel of an album just doesnt grab you (I still dont feel Washing machine)

Fuck yeah! That show was great! Remember how they opened up with Burning Spear and Thurston was going crazy with the guitar, scraping it agaiunst the walls and the amps? Amazing.

And remember his little spiel about Peter Frampton? Very funny.

That opening (with Thurston trying to, I don't know, throw his guitar through the ceiling?) was one of the craziest things I've ever seen in person. It was something like 7 solid minutes of noise before "the Burning Spear" really got going, too. It was like a jet took off in that place.

The Peter Frampton bit (how he saw him in 1974 "and he sucked!") was funny, as was Lee saying "We took his beer." Any and all Simpsons references at shows are OK by me.

Another fun story from this show: I was standing along the raised part in the back so that I could see over everyone's heads, and during the last 20 minutes of the show (more or less from "Unmade Bed" on), there was what I think was a NAMBLA couple stitting in one of the booths in front of me. The guy had to be about 50, glasses, cowboy shirt and jeans, the kid about 8, and... man, I don't know, it was just creepy as hell. They didn't act like father/son or uncle/nephew, the guy was acting like this kid was his date, and was sort of singing the words to some of the songs (Unmade Bed, for example) to him... I was weirded out for a while there. They also had matching rings on their left ring fingers. Creepy.

What the hey, here's the setlist that night:

The Toronto show at the kool haus was awesome. Unmade Bed had the crowd jumping, it was just so awesome to see so many people digging all the new songs from a band with a heavily worshipped back catalogue.

I remember Thurston asking the crowd what the 'hot read' was in town, and then joking that Lee was a '[Nicholas] Sparks fan'

They also screwed up on Dude Ranch Nurse when Thurston got the wrong guitar for the song. He apologized and gave Kim a hug with smiles all around.

Silver Rocket was excellent, with excellent use of their light blocks. During this song Sunburned Hand of the Man stood bowing on the side of the stage.

I Love You Golden Blue

I dunno about this album though, its not one of my favourites, for me certain sonic youth albums really stand out like 'sister', 'evol', 'daydream nation', 'washing machine', and 'Murray Street'.

I'm not a big fan, but I just haven't been able to get into it. I love the artwork, though. I'm listening to it now and am not quite sure why I didn't like it in the first place. I think it just doesn't stick out as anything spectacular to me. Still good.

Dripping Dream has always been really bizarre to me. "Mother Africa awake your son" is just not something I expect to hear from them.

the art on the LP is better because you can see it more clearly.
