Jim O Rourke officially leaves Sonic Youth- Thoughts?

  1. After ALLL the rumours, Lee finally confirmed it on Billboard's web page.

    On the one hand, it's sad to see him go. Songs from Murray Street and Sonic Nurse won't be the same. I'm pretty sure that if they don't get their guitar tech to play for them, then they'll just drop the songs from the set list.

    On the other, it's good to see SY get back to their original 4 piece. And he's getting involved in more solo records and film, so that's always good.

    Rain on Tin or Peace Attack just won't be the same live anymore :(

    I fortunitly saw them last year when Jim was still around and kickin.
