Q. It was a coup to get the whole Sonic Youth line-up to play together at this years No Fun. Was that an idea of the bands, or you?
My idea, I been trying to get them to do it for a few years now and the stars finally aligned properly….
Q. What do you think of the new SY album?
I have not heard it yet, Thurston just sent me a vinyl copy along with the new MSBR LP he just put out on Ecstatic Peace but it has not arrived yet, I am always looking forward to hear their albums I been a fan of the band since I was 13 or 14.
Q. They are a band that has been able to be somewhat mainstream and palatable for many tastes but then also have an underground following of their noisier, more avant-garde stuff. Is that an ideal situation for a band?
It’s certainly a great situation for them I think, but you would have to ask them directly if they consider it ideal. The ‘Ideal’ situation for a band these days is to make shitty popular music and quickly sell Millions of records and fill the bank with money and then get shittier and not worry about anything ever again, right? Certainly that’s not SY.
