Goo

March 23, 2013

Yeah, well, my previous post reminded me of it so I had to give it a spin ’cause I sure haven’t played this one in ages: Sonic Youth‘s album Goo. And considering I only own it on cassette I had to ‘Tube it and give it a spin to see if it still holds up. Never been that a big a fan of Sonic Youth – when it comes to noise rock I prefer the brutal side of it like Jesus Lizard or modern outfits like Whores. – but this still sounds great, I consider it to be one of the better produced indie US rock albums, and is actually a weird time capsule of how American indie rock used to sound as Nirvana was roughly 12 months away from pretty much changing everything forever. Jeez, was this really released in 1990? Where the hell did time go?
