You're talking about A Thousand Leaves. The bulk of NYC Ghosts was, as far as I know, written on new (or "new old") gear after the theft in early July '99 and premiered in its entirety at the end of August.

thank you. this was the beginnings of the acoustic era, as thurston said in some previous interviews, that they had been stripped down by the thefts, and that he had just started jamming out again on acoustics and much of the new materials stem from that. It is brutally obvious in the almost rhythm guitar parts from Sonic Nurse especially.

Are you sure that the title song has been written on acoustics ?


Concerning Rather Ripped, I agree with Rob, it's not the kind of music I'm looking for when I listen to Sonic Youth.
And there're few songs I really dislike :
What a waste, Sleeping around, Lights out, The Neutral.
Just my opinion.

THESE are awesome albums. Rather Ripped is not as good as these albums (and then some), but it is still a decent album, just lacking in the meaning, cohesion, and imagination that would merit the word 'awesome'.

Eh. Seeing as how I was a late bloomer of the SY fanclub ummm....I enjoyed RR. And YES! there are tracks that put me to sleep...but I think Pink Steam and some other jammies make up for them. But yes....they DO need to go back to "skronkin'"

Rather Ripped has lots of good songs. In fact the only two that I don't like are Turquoise Boy and The Neutral.

I prefer it to Sonic Nurse though. Some of the choruses on that album are so corny (their melodies not the lyrics). Particularly these parts:

Dead or alive -
There's danger,
The dead are alright -
with me,

We're not gonna run away -
we're not gonna leave you stranger!

Ffffuuuuccckkkkzzzz!

I don't mind if you sing a different song,
sing a different song,
just as long as you sing -
sing along,

It's what you didn't say!
It's what you didn't say!

Sssshhhhiiiittttgggg!

I Love You Gordon Blue is a masterpiece though.

i dig it now, but i certainly did not at first. it took a lot of listens to get it.plus i went to the show when they were touring for the album. the show was fabulous and they did most of rather ripped songs. plus i got to touch thurston moores guitar. a memorable moment in time.

yeah those songs are terrible (the neutral is ok) sleeping around and lights out are sy's least inspired boring songs. but reena and jams run free make up for them. RR definatly is not a grower, ie its fun at the beggining but 2 1/2 years later, i do not have much of an urge to listen to it...

To Whom It May Concern:
First, everyone understand. I have nothing to do with Nicole's murder. I loved her; always have and always will. If we had a problem, it's because I loved her so much.
Recently, we came to the understanding that for now we were not right for each other, at least for now. Despite our love, we were different and that's why we mutually agreed to go our separate ways.
It was tough splitting for a second time, but we both knew it was for the best. Inside, I had no doubt that in the future we would be close friends or more. Unlike what has been written in the press, Nicole and I had a great relationship for most of our lives together. Like all long-term relationships, we had a few downs and ups.
I took the heat New Year's 1989 because that's what I was supposed to do. I did not plead no contest for any other reason but to protect our privacy and was advised it would end the press hype.
I don't want to belabor knocking the press, but I can't believe what is being said. Most of it is totally made up. I know you have a job to do, but as a last wish, please, please, please, leave my children in peace. Their lives will be tough enough.
I want to send my love and thanks to all my friends. I'm sorry I can't name every one of you, especially A.C. Man, thanks for being in my life. The support and friendship I received from so many: Wayne Hughes, Lewis Marks, Frank Olson, Mark Packer, Bender, Bobby Kardashian. I wish we had spent more time together in recent years. My golfing buddies: Hoss, Alan Austin, Mike, Craig, Bender, Wyler, Sandy, Jay, Donnie, thanks for the fun.
All my teammates over the years: Reggie, you were the soul of my pro career. Ahmad, I never stopped being proud of you. Marcus, you've got a great lady in Catherine, don't mess it up. Bobby Chandler, thanks for always being there. Skip and Kathy, I love you guys. Without you, I never would have made it through this far.
Marguerite, thanks for the early years. We had some fun. Paula, what can I say? You are special. I'm sorry I'm not going to have, we're not going to have, our chance. God brought you to me, I now see. As I leave, you'll be in my thoughts.
I think of my life and feel I've done most of the right things. So why do I end up like this? I can't go on. No matter what the outcome, people will look and point. I can't take that. I can't subject my children to that. This way, they can move on and go on with their lives.
Please, if I've done anything worthwhile in my life, let my kids live in peace from you, the press.
I've had a good life. I'm proud of how I lived. My mama taught me to do unto others. I treated people the way I wanted to be treated. I've always tried to be up and helpful. So why is this happening?
I'm sorry for the Goldman family. I know how much it hurts.
Nicole and I had a good life together. All this press talk about a rocky relationship was no more that what every long-term relationship experiences. All her friends will confirm that I have been totally loving and understanding of what she's been going through.
At times, I have felt like a battered husband or boyfriend, but I loved her; make that clear to everyone. And I would take whatever it took to make it work.
Don't feel sorry for me. I've had a great life, great friends. Please think of the real O.J. and not this lost person.
Thanks for making my life special. I hope I helped yours.
Peace and love, O.J.
