Hmm. I don't get it, but I'll acknowledge your right to say that.

Nurse and Ripped are 9/10 albums. And Eternal is a high seven.

Is the Geffen era really your favorite? Mine is the era immediately before it.

I don't typically get into Thurston's material outside of SY much, but Demolished Thoughts is some of the best stuff he's done. Considerably better than Psychic Hearts and Trees. And of course most of his noisy stuff is just awful (sans some of his collaborative efforts. The Hurricane Floyd stuff is great. Love Pillow Wand and In Store with Nels C.).

I don't know. Was just a deeply personal album. I think that's pretty cool. Well written and unexpected. I recommend it.

which would make a vague press release now so timely, "hey Kim!" "wanna let the fans in on our secret."

What does Metallica have to do with anything? Last i checked, they were from your neck of the woods.

bitch bitchin about musicianship, this is rock n roll- fuck industry PRO types
you're in the wrong room, go fuck yourself down the hall, in that room where everything gets done like Jeff Koons brand of artifact.

Why do you keep bringing up all of this industry shit? And Kim's lyics (while I agree they are usually more straight forward than Thurston's) can get just as nonsensical. That's one thing I've always enjoyed about the Youth, though. I tend to (in most cases....) avoid lyrics. For me, personally, art has always been about taking me outside of everyday reality as opposed to aiding me in identifying with it.

*never expect to be able to hear the important things through the monitors
*never let another band borrow your tube amp during a show you're playing
*bring a backup head & guitar, otherwise a tube will blow out on your main head & a string will break
*When singing, fucking sing. Don't scream, don't Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, or Ian Curtis it. You're not Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, or Ian Curtis & it just makes you sound tone deaf.
*Don't play in a band with anyone that thinks they're a virtuoso. And don't consider yourself one either. A drum solo, a bass solo, and a guitar solo all at once rarely sound good.

No.

Is the Geffen era really your favorite? Mine is the era immediately before it.

It's entirely your subjective opinion if you think Nurse and Ripped were great albums, I thought they were pretty forgettable. Forgettable in the sense that I've listened to A Thousand Leaves a hundred times and I've listened to RR and Nurse maybe a dozen.

Geffen era isn't necessary my favorite. I love Sister and Daydream and to a slightly lesser extent Evol. The Geffen time is way too broad to just define as an era, there were 9 albums in those years. My favorite SY era is 1990-1995.

But how the fuck can the band play live and basically opt out of playing ANYTHING from 1990-2009 is beyond me, and that's what they did on much of the Eternal tour.

That's why I personally passed on seeing them live the last time they were here, I've seen SY 5 times, but I know when they are touring behind a new album they usually play 90% of that album. And maybe 4-5 other songs, including usually something from the super early SY/Confusion days which I don't really care about.

If SY was touring and playing a broad selection througout their career, I would find them a far far more compelling touring act.

They do the occasional show with a good varied selection (ie. the August show in NYC) but they have not done a show with the same kind of variety in my city in the 14 years I've been a fan of the band.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I love to talk about sonic youth, their latest haircut, brand of toiletries and favorite cereal (it's cocopuffs) all day long, ceaselessly, but these people. THESE PEOPLE.

WOW.

Whatever happens I just wish all the joy and love to them both. If Sonic Youth are no more then thank you so much for rocking me. I love your music. Remember the eternity of the moment in life. Take care
