I'm also still trying to process it as a real thing. Part of me--the weird-ass
part--suspects this is just alternate timeline bleedover, and everything is really
okay, and lalalala.

Lee's solo album has come to save us all.

I know it's not official yet. But it's safe to say it doesn't look good.

it just makes me really sad .I know we'll still have the archival releases or whatever. It's just that as an "end to an era" it really sucks because it's an era (for me, as an obsessive fan) that lasted for over a third of my lifetime.

Why would they lie to their fans though? I can't see what are the benefits for doing that. It's not as if their fans are all going to desert them if they reform.

I don't think anyone's lying, I think the band genuinely don't know what's happening yet. The things Lee has said in interviews recently have been very well judged I think considering the situation is completely out of his control.

yeah, in sense, I feel like Lee is just as uncertain as we are. I hate to say it but I think Kim/Thurston hold the fate of the band right now. And I think it's amore of a "can they do it?" kind of thing. THey don't know that right now. Imagine if you worked with yr spouse and broke up. Can you continue to have a work relationship? Some ppl can and some can't. I think time will figure it out. But I doubt eitehr of them are in a rush to find out right now.

Their love of music will always continue
This year Thurston was saying he was hoping they could turn their sound totally around. by being able to go any amount of time without having to feel like sonic youth exists, the sonic youth "idea" or "mystery" will be resting fully underground like a cicada and could one day emerge as a new music entity.

2015 might be a little early. but i take Lee's mentioning of Radical Adults and the idea of "elder" humans making some of the most pure abstract and concrete statements around that something will happen someday even if it is just a new song. when it happens it would just by the nature of musical growth happening for them and all around them definitely be very radical and surprising to everyone.

I was thinking about skip tracer definitely. : ) At least Lee wil be able to play it then if not the whole band. As far as the possibly to-be-discussed-further later, if The Eternal is the final album by the band I think the most important thing is that Steve sounds so good on it and gets to create/stir into existence a massive amount of energy on each song, it's one of his finest albums, though there are lots of them. ;0

I always thought Hoarfrost was great, can definitely see how many wouldn't feel the same though.

As I've said previously, personally I'm kind of glad that they're over, assuming they are, which does seem to be the case. I think they are all capable of better things as individuals than what sonic youth has been doing as a band over the past few years.

I rmember the band mentioning maybe a year or so ago that they were planning on writing new material toward the end of this year. This year is almost over. Something tell me they never got around to it.
