My friend Norton LOVES Sonic Youth, he got me into them by burning me confusion is sex about 8 years ago... I mean, seriously, that's his favorite album of all time.. and he went and saw them once and was like, "Eh, they were really shit. I still love them though." Always made me wonder...


Have you ever seen the band live and thought they sucked ass?

loads of people said they sucked last time they visited here, mostly because the sound sucked and they played most of rather ripped.

i thought they played the shit out of the shitty rr songs and actually played them the write way, but o well, i did watch the show from the soundboard on the side of the stage.

I've seen the close to 30 times since 1985 and a couple times they were just good (what comes immediately to mind was the tour opening for R.E.M. and their set was just too short, but I saw Thurston do a thirty minute "Elegy For All the Dead Rock Stars" that morning in a record store in Elensburg, so I hardly had anything to complain about!) Otherwise, they have always been fucking incredible and life affirming and really one of the only reasons I continue to give a fuck about rock music at all. Just thinking about it gets me desperately hoping they will come through town again sometime soon...

i saw them about two years ago
i would only say it was shit because they played mostly all of rather ripped. the sound was fine and they played fine. i don't remember the last time i saw them, not too recently but i've seen them at least 5 or 6 times so i probably won't ever again unless their new album (???) is really good.

however the performance of sugar kane on jools holland (i think?) is AWFUL.

How is it 'terrible'
I honestly think ya'll just don't like it.
Poison is terrible. Air Supply is terrible.
There is a dfference between things we dislike, and things that are just fucking bad.

i would rather listen to a poison album in its entirety or drink actual poison (old school shakespeare style) than listen to anything from rather ripped.

I really hope people reacted like this NYC ghosts and flowers also... because that was almost a self parody.
