SONIC YOUTH - Splitting The Atom

A new ,more topical title for this disc would be: "Splitting The Alt-Rock Super Power-Couple" ,in light of the recent news that Kim & Thurston are parting ways after 27 years of marriage! That sucks ,but they will at least finish their upcoming European tour ,and then see what flies. These are good recordings taken from various U.S. gigs during 1992.Courtesy of Joel Rizzo's discard pile ,thanks buddy! p.s. I saw a cool documentary today called "Flicker" ,about Brion Gysin's Dreamachine. Had Lee Ranaldo ,Genesis P. Orridge,William S. Burroughs ,and other underground cultural icons! Check it out,makes you wanna build your own Dreamachine (it would not be very hard,and would be quite rewarding ,in the end!)
