Sonic Youth Book


My husband recently read Goodbye 20th Century: a Biography of Sonic Youth by David Browne, and he enjoyed it. He made one fatal flaw though – he told me about it. Ash would tell me about his favorite anecdotes of his beloved band.

One story he shared was about how everyone in the band loved to collect records, but Thurston Moore put them all to shame. He was obsessed with collecting albums. It got so bad that he and his wife, Kim Gordon, had to rent a second apartment just to house their stuff.

  1. that sounds like something I may be doomed to face. except replace albums with comic books.
