s'great, isn't it? what's the extended version on the destroyed room like?
i luff sonic youth.
The Stone Roses final show (Reading 94) was SY frying my brain with an unbelievable version of that song. Was the best.
Then my memory has blanked out everything thereafter.
Its gotta go down as one of the great Reading moments. They ended with Diamond Sea, and after the verses/singing stopped the noise took over accompanied by strobes, which went on for ages! I can still picture Thurston swinging the guitar over his head whilst these strobes are going off, was amazing. Poor Stone Roses never had a chance!
an awful lot. Infact, I'm going to put it on now...
they'd play that song live again. I haven't seen or heard of them playing it for some time.
Actually, when was the last time they played it?
but that was while ago, and it wasnt all that long of a version, more liek 15 mins or so
http://www.sonicyouth.com/mustang/cc/sytour.html it was 1996 when it was last regularly played..
in the academy when i saw them play it in like i said above, although im sure they played it in manchester the last time they played bout 4 or 5 years back, or at least some of it.
i saw them at v2005 in stafford and i swear to this day they played it but i looked at the setlist on the sonic youth site and that says otherwise.
I love this band so much. So much.
your fundamental point is wrong, considering the amount of records they've sold vs the impact they've had on popular music, sonic youth are probably underrated.
also, you're just wrong generally.
i'm sure you don't have time - too many nu metal albums to listen to, right?
This is her 'funeral song'.
The long version is basically just an extra 6 minutes of noise from what I remember of it, so it's not really possible to say much about how different it is.
I like it, though I'd not say it's all that fantastic. Not as good as Hits of Sunshine from A Thousand Leaves, for example.
