It was a simpler time - Sonic Youth in the 90's Part One

Back in the Nineties, there was a indie rock band called Sonic Youth. Because they had a stack of great old albums from the 80's (Evol, Sister, Daydream Nation), everyone loved them. And rightfully so, because they were awesome. They released a shitload of great albums in the 90's. Goo. Dirty. The very under-rated Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star. Washing Machine. Their name is legion, etc. Right at the end of the Nineties they went off the boil, and lost it for a few years. They got it back eventually. It's a happy story.

And what better way to illustrate some of that story than to give you a sweet, sweet taste?

Two choice cuts below
Skip Tracer ( from Washing Machine)

AND this hard to find non-album track
Dirty Boots (Rock and Roll Heaven version) from Kool Thing CD single (Out of print/Deleted)
