Music: Sonic Youth – The Eternal

Casey McKinney


You know when you get 5 choices in those little Facebook best of quizzes (well maybe you don’t, maybe you are too busy listening to music, or playing it, or looking at art, or making it – like a couple known as Thurston and Kim). Anyway I did two of those things, one for best band, and one for best guitarist, and I feel guilty now that neither Thurston Moore nor Sonic Youth made it in those top fives…5 huh?  Pretty though. John Fahey made the guitarists bunch, and hell his art’s on the cover of Sonic Youth’s new album, The Eternal, which is what they are, and maybe why I forget.  Brilliant, brilliant, stuff.
