    Sonic Youth was on Late Night with Conan O Brien a few days ago. They were awesome. Do you remember the name of the song they played? I think it was Unmade Bed.

    Anyone else like Sonic Youth?

    I hate my life.

    I cant believe I missed that.

    I was going to catch a plane to NY to see SY and the Pixies at Lollapalooza up there. I probably would have had to sell some stuff for the cash, but it woulda been worth it. Too bad they cancelled the tour.

    I liked them a lot when I was in high school, especially Dirty. I'm sure someone will like them in miscellaneous too.

    Any idea who's the musical guest on Late Night tonight?
     
  5. just a question, but i've been hearing about sonic youth for a while now (mainly in the guitar mags, about the guitarists) and like you guys here, i heard them for the first time on Conan O'Brian. is that how most of their songs sound? I like it!

    Yes it is. They have a very unique sound that unfortunitly never really caught on. :)

    Sonic Youth is great, i'm ashamed to say i didn't even know they were playing on Conan. I havn't followed the band in quite some time.

    My roomate has this awsome Sonic Youth home video of them on tour with Nirvana back in like 1990 or 91, very interesting.

    Yeah. Their older songs were a lot more... "experimental" though. Pop in one of their old CDs when you're hanging out with friends at night, its perfect.
     
  8. I <3 sonic youth! I even have a "washing machine" t-shirt. And yes, it was "unmade bed" it's on the album Sonic Nurse.

    I might see them august 14th in boston, I just hope it's all ages. even if it's 18+ I think I could go in if my dad came with me. either way he's gonna be there.

    Wow, I didn't even know they were around again. I used to be into them in high school (that's quite a few years ago).
     
  15. around again? They never went away!

    What I find funny is that how everyone gets worked up over the White Stripes and the lack of a REAL bass player, when Sonic Youth had a bassist for about 15 years, and then she switched to guitar. For a good 4 LPs they made them with out bass.
