R.I.P. Sonic Youth

So, Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore are getting a divorce. They will honor their remaining shows in South America, but we all know there's no way the divorcees are going to want to continue on in a band together.

So goes the end of another legendary alternative act that provided us with great music for three decades. Only thing left for them to do is to finally be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for one last gig.

Pitchfork: Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore Separate

Wow. Crazy. But people change. Especially creative people. A compatibility that may last for a while still might not last forever. So, not hard to believe.

For what it's worth, at least Ira and Georgia from Yo La Tengo are still together, and they've also been married for 27 years.

Too bad Pitchfork was too oblivious to acknowledge that.

What's with 80s rock bands lately?

Why couldn't it have been Bon Jovi??

I got to see Sonic Youth live in a small club in SLC last October. I honestly didn't know that much about them other than they had been on the Homerpalooza episode of The Simpsons and Thurston sang backing vocals on an R.E.M. song.

I was definitely impressed. They put on a great show and we got to stand right in front of Thurston Moore throughout the show.

It may be time for them to call it quits though, there was seriously less than 100 people there, and they seemed kind of bummed at how few people came out to see them play.

Daydream Nation, while definitely their best, might be a bit dense as an introduction. Sister and Goo are both good choices, as is Dirty.

EVOL is an awesome album and hugely underrated, btw.

Wow what a bummer of a news

I'm glad that I got to see them live a few years back when they performed Daydream Nation (not actually my favourite album by them but I thought, hey who knows how long they'll be around for).

To an extent, yeah, but it does start with Teen Age Riot, and that's a Sonic Youth tune that's ideal if one wants to get hooked.

Fact. Still my favorite after all these years.

Saw them live with Flaming Lips back in '06, which doesn't make sense on paper but slayed in reality. They opened with Teen Age Riot, and it was wonderful.

I missed those series of shows back in 06. I regret it. SY and Lips have much in common. The American indie scene kinda close knit. Both are elder statesmen of rock and proved that you can rock out your whole life and not become a total douche and remain a cool person. Also that you can sustain your music by nurturing other artistic endeavors and collaborations.
