Fuck exchanging band members as vital as jugular veins, that's just not going to happen and we don't want it to happen. Would it be "cool" if Kim Deal started singing for the band? I don't know. Probably, for the spectacle. But it would not be Sonic Youth.

That said, if the band's over..... who's next? Who is going to step up and occupy the position SY has held as the godfathers of a genre? They definitely hold rank, based on both age and influence, and I don't see any bands around that are fit to take their place (in the music world; not in our hearts and minds, of course.... that place is sacred).

Any ideas?

Another meaningless speculative question, but that's what this shit is for.

I don't think any band can really "replace" the Youth. I mean, they are still a band whether active or not.

I do think, even though I'm personally not a serious fan, a lot of kids will end up feeling the same way about Deerhunter as I do SY. Their fans tend to respond to them in similar ways, at least around here....but then again, Deerhunter is from my neck of the woods. Saw 'em during the "Turn it up Faggot" days, which personally was my favorite time for that band. Bradford is a super nice guy. Moses is too. Never met the rest of 'em.

I donīt think any band can replace SY as I think anyone canīt replace for example Tom Waits. But my world doesnīt end if the SY splits altough I still think itīs the greatest band in the world at the moment. Itīs just a circle of life, also artists and bands start and end. And I think itīs a good thing that things start and end, I think it would be very boring if something just continuing forever. Well the Life is continuing forever, but it changes all the time.

I felt the same way about Deerhunter for a while. But I'm starting to wonder if they're up to it. Yes, Turn it up Faggot, Cryptograms, etc. were very SY reminiscent, but I don't see them really doing anything new.

Really it's just a questions of whether or not the tradition started by the Velvet Underground will be continued, and whether there's a band out there capable of leading its continuation.

As amazing as the Velvet Underground were, I always think of them as being one of the most overrated bands of all time. I think "The Parable Of Arable Land" and "God Bless...." by The Red Crayola are much more reminiscent of so-called "free music" and "avant-noise - indie Rock" than anything else that was recorded in 1967/68. The Velvet Underground are great, though, I do have all their records and highly worship them because they made some real good music, wrote great songs etc, but personally I never thought of them as being a main influence on Sonic Youth, although VU surely paved the way for "avantgarde noise" within a "song" context.... VU were more of a "folk" influenced band, SY is more "punk rock".... I would say Can is more of a predecessor to SY than any other band, in a way how they put together their musical work through improvisation (although Can came from a more classically trained jazz background).
Motorpsycho from Norway definitely follow the SY tradition, although they come from heavy rock (Sabbath) and mix it with SY elements....

Really, not that I care, but I've seen far stupider, more inane topics in this forum than this one. I sulk now.

True. Can might be a better comparison.

Ok ok. If you guys are seriously talking about someone replacing SY. You're stupid. Can a band replace another band? Fuck no.
