On Easter Sunday in 1996 there was a big festival in Düsseldorf, Germany—the German TV show Rockpalast was there and captured some outstanding footage of Sonic Youth in its prime, supporting their ninth album Washing Machine, from which most of the material played in the show stems.

Other acts participating in what came to be called “Osterrocknacht” (Easter Rock Night) were Cypress Hill, the Walkabouts, Smashing Pumpkins, the Afghan Whigs, Garbage, and Chumbawamba (a year before their breakout hit “Tubthumping”).

Sonic Youth doesn’t play a single song from before Daydream Nation. In fact, 9 out of the 11 songs come off of SY’s two most recent albums, Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star and Washing Machine.

The first three songs amount to throat-clearing before the band starts really kicking ass on “Washing Machine.” The camerawork, audio, and editing are all excellent, and the 21-minute finale of “The Diamond Sea” has to be seen to be believed.
Setlist:
Teen Age Riot
Bull in the Heather
Starfield Road
Washing Machine
Junkie’s Promise
Saucer-Like
Becuz
Sugar Kane
Skip Tracer
Skink
The Diamond Sea

You can never have too many 20 minute versions of the Diamond Sea.

I love that live video, but if it's deemed "ferocious" I wonder what they'd call something from their eighty-something era....
