Sonic Youth – Dirty (1992): Half Notes

Share this:

For years and years, Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation was the record I went to when the mood struck for some ugly & hypnotic guitar. Dirty now sits in that spot. Actually, it’s the second disc of the deluxe-edition set from 2003: full of b-sides and, more important, a ton of rehearsal recordings. Blistering and hideous guitar madness. This isn’t for everyone … but if you’re up for some guitar torture then you oughta start right here.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
