Whatever Happened To… Sonic Youth?

Browse & purchase this albumSuperstar – Sonic Youth (1994)
This American band, with roots in the 80’s punk scene, found more mainstream success during the 90’s flourish of alternative rock acceptance. But Sonic Youth maintained their experimental and do-it-yourself ethos well into the 00’s, as demonstrated by the succession of labels with whom they worked. They continued to release albums over the years, with their last studio album coming out in 2009. In 2011, founding members Thurston Moore (guitar) and Kim Gordon (bass guitar) announced the end of their marriage, and Sonic Youth (as a whole) went on indefinite hiatus shortly thereafter. Various combinations of band members continue to work together, but no new Sonic Youth material or performances are planned in the foreseeable future.

  1. Lee Ranaldo’s The Lee Ranaldo Band recently did a free concert at Chicago’s Millenium Park. I’m afraid it got rained out and was not as successful as he deserves.
