Sonic Youth's seventh album 'Dirty' was released in 1992 at the height of the grunge movements powers. The NY noise rockers were one of the most influential to the muddy rock scene, so it made sense they'd soak up a heap of influences from the groups they were touring with at the time. 'Dirty' is packed full of catchy alternative rock tunes, complete with their avant-rock guitar theatrics and super-cool vocal deliveries of Kim, Thurston and Lee. Some will say this is 'pop' Sonic Youth, but the tunes like 'Sugar Kane', '100%', 'JC' and 'Youth Against Fascism' make this irresistible record an ideal starting point into Sonic Youth's unique take on guitar music.
