Sonic Youth – Sacred Trickster, Antenna. Live on Jools Holland

Posted in Music by jukeboxparables on May 5, 2009

Another two new tracks off the bands upcoming album The Eternal. Can you believe Thurston is 50years old? I can’t. To me he’ll always be that late 20-something shaggy haired crazy dood circa the 1980’s!

Sonic Youth month continues…

Sonic Youth – What We Know. Live on Jools Holland

Posted in Music by jukeboxparables on May 1, 2009

I’m declaring May: Sonic Youth month. Because after a few listens of their 16th album “The Eternal” …basically they’ve still got it. No other band in History has been able to pull this off in my opinion; that is not making rehashed or dull or just plain dinosaur music after 30+ years. Maybe Bowie… or The Beatles.

The Eternal is as fresh as their 15th effort Rather Ripped but rather than emitting a cleaner lighter vibe that album had it has memorable heavy/dirty hooks as if giving nods to albums like “Goo” and “Dirty”. Full review in the coming weeks.

But here’s the band playing “What We Know” on Jools Holland (above). Jools rightly mentions the band played way back on the shows debut in 1992. So I’ve tracked down that performance (below) 18years later, its all still there. Bravo.
