I feel really bad posting anything about this, but I do not post much and it was a coincidence that i even saw anything about this tonight!

I just would say, anything is possible! The down tone of the spin article is not echoed in the matador statement itself, and not echoed in the very recent New York City concert which did not to very intuitive sonic lifers (Jenn and others) suggest anything like there was this turmoil and imbalance about Thurston or Kim!

Love is a many splendored thing, marriage is not, necessarily!
I do not feel like, even if Sonic Youth dematerializes now, it would be in a way that was unloving to music and art. : ) Their perspectives on life are not traditional, and their love of the truth found in music and art is not going to disappear even if Sonic Youth, itself very close to the exact pulse of modern music and art, would dissolve.

I'm well aware nothing lasts forever, but this has been the fucking hell year.

A hell year for a beautiful person. I really hate it for ya man. If ya need anything....

I'm ashamed to admit that the first thing that crossed my mind upon seeing this article, without having any time to think, is whether this means the end of Sonic Youth. But as sad as that would be, more importantly, I wish the best for both of them and Coco. Divorce can be an extremely painful thing, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

As for those of you making a joke of this matter, I'm sure you think it's harmless, but please consider the concept that there's a time and place for everything.

I'm not really sure how to feel about this, and I suspect being that the details (none of which are my business) will likely never surface that I'll always feel that way. All I know is that it's obviously serious. Kim and Thurston have always done an amazing job keeping their private/relationship life out of media spotlight sans when things were BIG (Coco being born, etc). Them taking the effort to even announce the split is enough for me to know it's serious. I like to think it's temporary and things will be worked out, but yeah...kind of doubt it. We shall see. Hopefully this doesn't mark the end for the band, but at the same time seeing them on stage together and knowing they are no longer a unit might feel a bit strange. I always thought their relationship situation was about as good as anyone could ever be fortunate enough to find themselves in. 27 years, insane. All those great tunes. This shit is a bummer.

it's a defense mechanism to lessen shock of this obviously shocking situation.

I just feel bad for their daughter, since her parents break up will be so public and will probably follow her for the rest of her life.

besides that, I don't really care.

Sonic youth have put out enough records for me to enjoy and I don't mind if they never release another record again.

And I'm sure kim and thurston lost the spark a long time ago, don't do business, or at least long term business with yr lover.

I hope they are able to work everything out. It's really a huge shocker on one hand, but yet in the other you're kind of surprised after all that touring for so long it hadn't happened sooner.

I think they'll still do something. Mac and Laura broke up in Superchunk in 1993 and the band is still together today, touring and releasing new music. It's sporadic, yes, but I'd rather see minimal SY activity as opposed to none at all.

Damn.
I hope they+families are ok.
No idea of the reasons and I don't even want to know them, it's their business.
If this will affect SY plans (will wait for news on this before 2012, after the planned gigs, I guess), I'll be super bummed if they won't plan a "goodbye 2012" euro tour, I've only heard "work in progress" versions of the Eternal songs live and now I'm afraid I could well die before having a chance to listen to some of the "songs I want to witness live before I die" off my list (which includes, among others sy gems I never heard live, a proper "hello 2015" Skip tracer).

Thanks to both of them for the music, the laughs, everything.
Still hoping SY can go on as a "collective".

p.s. this will sound silly, but at first I thought they announced a split 7"...

On second thought, 27 years is a great run. Most don't go that long. I don't care as long as they're happy (and nothing this far leads me to believe anything otherwise). I don't see it being the end of the Youth...I mean, everyone knows that's where the money is for them. Will be interesting to see what happens. And if it is the end of the Youth, oh well to that too. Shit man, they stuck it out for ages. No shortage of tunes.
