Sonic Youth
Dirty

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.

Sonic Youth
Washing Machine

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1995’s Washing Machine contains examples of the band in weirded 60’s girl-group mode (‘Little Trouble Girl’), as well as ‘The Diamond Sea’, the only 20+ minute, whole-side noise jams ever to make it to a ‘proper’ Sonic Youth studio album. Double LP reissue.

Sonic Youth
Goo

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1990’s Goo was considered to be their most accessible album to date: it does after all contain the popular tunes ‘Dirty Boots’ and ‘Kool Thing’, virtually pop hits for Sonic Youth. LP reissue on Universal / Back To Black, with a variation on that great Topshop T-shirt design as sleeve art!
