Library Rock's Backpages

AUDIO: Sonic Youth (1986)

Martin Aston, Rock's Backpages audio, April 1986

The New York noisesters discuss the chronology of rock movements and their roots in No Wave; deny ripping off the Stooges; explain their name; talk about their guitar collection, their creative methods, how they carry the torch of rock'n'roll and struggle with engineers... and why they covered songs by Madonna and Kim Fowley.
