[Listen] Sonic Youth's First Live Recording


See what I mean?! Another track from the depths of the sea that we call history has found its way online via YouTube user RockNimbie. The future of Sonic Youth may be in a state of yo-yo right now but this recording is from a cassette dating back to June 1981's Noise Fest in NYC’s White Columns art space. As with the Radiohead demos we got to hear earlier in the week, hearing a band that we know blossom into a behemoth of influence at these early stages is a thing of brilliance. The recording is raw and rough around the edges but it's Sonic Youth through and through. Check it out below via CoS.
