Yes.

Almost every paragraph has a knee-slapper.

I've been doubting my writing abilities lately, but this did wonders for my confidence.

Maybe Sy has never been as influental as the Beatles for the popular music and I think even Sy would have sounded quite different without the Beatles, but to me personally Sy is even more important than the Beatles.

Lee is a big ol' Beatles freak...he probably thinks about them the same way I think about SY (or close to it). And the Beatles are my second-favorite band, so anytime people compare them, I'm with it...but you're right. For example, "Hey Joni" is not a "Lee song" in the same way "Something" is a "George song."

People love "Karenology"...that wasn't even his track originally.

If anyone's interested, I've posted basic guitar tabs for the entire album here.

Same. Why is this album missing from so many Best of the Year lists?

I'm also growing more and more fond of Demolished Thoughts, which I initially thought of as Thurston's least inspired album. I love it now.

I wish Kim would spit out a "proper" full length solo LP of the same caliber.

Speaking to the Sonic Youth / Beatles discussion, I've always found the bands to be quite comparable. Sonic Youth is to independent music what the Beatles are/were to mainstream pop. Sure, Lee is not a perfect George figure, but he that's partly because he plays a little of the Paul role as well. We all know that Lee brings the "pop" to the Sonic Youth table, but he's also the underutilized, quiet genius, who often writes or performs the most hummable songs in the band's catalog.

Kim's an anomaly of course. She's the "Paul" in some respects and the Yoko in others, but it's not the similarities between band members and their roles that makes Sonic Youth the Beatles of our little world; it's the prolific output, the endless capacity for reinvention, and the iconic quality of the individual members. I think it's absolutely a fitting comparison. Sonic Youth is just a product of a sub-culture of a sub-culture that the Beatles laid the framework for.
Anyway, the Pixies are more analogous to the Beatles in the musical, interpersonal, and archetypal sense. But while the Pixies are, in the long run, derivative of the Beatles (like: hey, what if the Beatles were geeky college rockers from the 80s?), Sonic Youth is, in my opinion, on the same hierarchical plane as the Beatles. Less "influenced by" and more "Twilight Zone version of"

Does that make any sense? Probably not. I'm totally tuned the fuck out and haven't slept in two days.

Yeah, Kim needs to step up her game in the music life. I'm not feeling these body/head releases.

Lee's recent Beatle post, with link to a nice PBS Magical Mystery Tour doc: http://http://www.sonicyouth.com/sym...-mystery-tour/

SY is more like Plastic Ono Band most of the time. Lee would be parallel to the skronky Eric Clapton in that band. Love all three bands. Still waiting for YokoKimThurston LP. Always wondered if "Kill yr Idols" was partially/subconsciously about John's death. To bad he didn't live long enough to get back into avant music and jam with them.

Somehow I don't see Kim doing a "proper" song-based album, but I'd love to be wrong about that. Seems like she wants to get more into wild improv. A Kim and Steve duo record would be awesome. Or she could join Watt and Kira in Dos (which would be Tres then)

I'm a fan of body/head too, and free kitten, and just about everything else she's a part of, but wouldn't it be great if she got a full band together, maybe Watt, Orourke, and Steve, and really put those "I love You golden blue" songwriting chops of hers to work in a serious way, and made a pseudo pop album for Matador that could sit comfortably next to Lee and Thurston's work?

It would compete me in a strange way.
