yeah i know what you mean. over here it is in "B class or C class" i'm not sure, but there are some voices to reclassify it back to A. from my point of view, i'll never consider pot to A group no matter what. on the other hand....pot can lead you to experiment with some other stuff, which can be dangerous in some cases...it's hard to say and it's polemic.

If Thurston doesn't smoke weed to this day I'd be very surprised.

From Lee's jrnls80s book:

"18 July (1987), woodgreen, london
DEATHTRIP
thought i could've died from a heart attack last night - whole body filled w aches and stresses and pains of various sorts. Heart racing, p'raps from the coke...

... last night i kept startling awake, right on the verge of sleep, feeling as though i'd be gone forever if i lost conciousness - just waiting for morning light to come. is it just the drugs? sending my system into convulsions? my body is frail, chest caving in, and i mistreat it, abuse it. what would cody think to know i'm slowly killing myself off from his life?"


and

"December 5 (1988)
this week has been cocaine, on many sides. down in florida it seems to be everywhere. it came to us through local emissaries, came to me as the subject of wierd poem-stories through the mail, too; and then more the next day via tom. the sonic tom, not my thom."

Ahh... All right. I figured it was just someone posing as him. I thought I remember CHABIB saying only Lee and STeve had accounts.

Kursty is as plain as the day is long
im gonna be dorky, and contribute too:

1. Kim does look like she might have used heroin. Look at her hands, and sometimes her face, like a femm Burroughs.

2. Isn't there some bootleg (i dont think i actually herd it) of SY live in Japan, and before the encore Thurston Moore goes, "all right lets make this quick, im coming up on shrooms" (supposdly shrooms were legit in japan, back then too)

3. I herd a rumor that Tmore was seriously considering moving to Montreal becasue the chron was so cheap.

4. Tmore hangs out with Magik Markers, and they are POTHEADS.

being the major counter-culture figures they are, i'm sure they are not "soap and water" - but i think the point is, they don't endorse it in any way..

they keep it a fairly personal and private choice - if they indulge at all..
what difference would it make, anyway?

First of all, SY don't do heavy drugs. Thurston, Kim and Lee have done drugs before. Of that I am sure. Don't know about Stevo. Thurston's smoked pot (Motta to Watt), and done some hallucinogens in New York when he was younger at a Television concert or something like that. He said he could see trails of music. Trippy as hell. Kim has done acid at Disney, which is a terrible idea, it's way too over stimulating. And Lee is/used to be a stoner. You can see a failry recent picture of him holding a roach and looking really stoned. He has also commented that while they were on tour in Europe, they had smoked hashish. Plus he is a former Dead Head (need I say more)? There is also a drug reference to smoking hash in Mind of the Bourgiousie Reader ("pass it around or stick it on a pin"). Beyond that, I sincerley doubt that they have done any hard drugs such as heroin or other opiates. They are not drug addicts or abusers. They all have families now. They can still have a good time, but they're not kids anymore. They have their careers and families to think of. The good ol' days of partying it up are gone. It's the era of responsibilty now for SY. But I know they can still cut loose when need be. They just now how to be responsible with their consumption.

i've heard that rumour before that kim used to be on smack... have to say i didn't give it much creedence... interesting to see that other people have heard that rumour... also interesting to hear they were using coke as late as 92... i thought it may have just been an 80s thing when they were a bit younger and more brash... i wonder when the last time they used was... i'd imagine it would be quite a performance enhancing drug (musical performance i mean)... i've tried coke a fair few times but have always wanted to take some before playing guitar... it's something i haven't experimented with enough, drugs and musical creation...

In my opinion, thats what drugs are good fo, or why i decided to experement. ^^ Musical creation. Ive smoked weed many o time, and it makes playing guitar so much easier, enjoyable, and better sounding.

yeah thats about exactly what went down. I was quite surprised. laughed a bit. realized it was legit and laughed somewhere at how petty it seemed. loneflanger is correct.

I have a Steve Shelley interview that should be dated around 1987, and he says "We're not big drugs takers"

the overall msg i get from sonic youth is weed is good and forget all the rest.
is this a good statement from a band?? hell yes. When you play this stuff to the kiddies. You don't want them to get the wrong message. Still there music is not about drugs use rather anti i think. classic eg silver rocket.
