    Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot


    official video for the song Teenage Riot by Sonic Youth from the album Daydream Nation released in 1988

    This is one of our favorites. We combined footage R. Kern shot for a failed video to the song White Kross with stuff I shot of us on tour. We tried to include as many various clips from our personal video collections as possible, placing ourselves in amongst a host of folks we admire. Watch out for Tom Waits and Susanna Hoffs, Iggy and Blixa, D. Boon, Harvey Pekar, and many others. Almost got sued by Wim Wenders' people for inclusion of Nastassia Kinski (from Paris TX).

    Nardwuar vs. Sonic Youth Pt 1 of 2


    Pt 1 of 2 of Nardwuar's interview with Sonic Youth outside the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, BC, Canada. April 17 1991. For the transcript and other Nardwuar Sonic Youth encounters check out

    Postscript: Nardwuar sez The record that got broken was Charlie Browning by The Young Men from Seattle Washington, released in 1963 on the Bolo Record Label. (Bolo 742) I had brought it to the interview because I had heard (incorrecty) that Sonic Youth had recorded a version of The Coasters hit Charlie Brown ---t hey really recorded Alice Cooper's Is It My Body --- I hypothesized that perhaps that they would be interested in seeing a Northwest take on Charlie Brown. When I say Northwest take I mean that The Young Men took Charlie Brown and changed the words slightly to Charlie Browning in honour of a local football player. I personally love when songs get regionalized and that damn 45 was dear to my heart! Luckily I was able to find another copy a few years later in a Bellingham ,Washington Value Village. Furthermore to my amazement,, I was told, that while opening for REM at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver in 1995, Sonic Youth dedicated a song to me: Schizophrenia !

    Show Us Your Junk! Ep. 18 - Lee Ranaldo | EarthQuaker Devices


    Learn more:

    We’ve had a running bet around the office about who might be the first artist to drop trou in an episode of Show Us Your Junk! Today’s your lucky day, Sonic Youth fans, because Lee Ranaldo is not that artist.

    But he came close. And he did expose us to a custom sixteen-string guitar built by Steve Albini with only high E strings and a penis inlay. It says, “Sonic Sixteen.”

    “That’s one of the bossest headstocks you’ll ever see in your life,” says Ranaldo.

    “So that’s that.”

    In thirty short years, Sonic Youth produced one of the largest and most stimulating bodies of work of any American rock band. Their catalog spans 16 studio albums, 4 “best-of” compilations, 6 feature-length videos, 46 music videos, 8 Eps, 21 singles, 8 improvised SYR recordings, 8 authorized bootlegs, 16 soundtrack and compilation appearances; and hundreds – actual hundreds – of guitars. They married hardcore punk with fine art, free-improvisation, beatnik poetry, musiqué concrete, contemporary classical composition, pop-rock, and selfless democratic collaboration to produce a polyamorous cacophony of tension and release that’s often imitated, but never replicated.

    During the latter third of their career, Sonic Youth set up camp in their Echo Canyon East recording studio on Manhattan’s Murray St. where they recorded their 2002 album with the same name. In 2006, they decamped to the opposite shore of the Hudson River to Hoboken, NJ to set up shop at Echo Canyon West, where their junk currently resides.

    The control room in Echo Canyon West is built around a 2” 16-track Studer A800 tape machine and a modified Neve 5106 mixing console. Since the 5106 was built for broadcast applications, it has no mic preamps. Audio signals are routed to preamps, outboard gear, and tape – bypassing the console entirely. Likewise, they shun plugins and prefer to commit sounds to tape as early as possible. Edits are performed manually using a grease pencil and razorblade to slice and dice entire takes captured on tape.

    The studio’s live room is lined with amplifiers – combos mostly – including an early ‘60s Fender Super Reverb (Lee’s amp of choice), a brownface Princeton modded by NYC amp tech Harry Kolbe, and the exact ‘50s Tweed Deluxe model like those used onstage by Neil Young during the Goo tour back in 1991. “It’s not really roadworthy,” says Ranaldo, “but it’s got that classic old Fender sound.”

    Guitar-wise, Lee mainly plays his signature Jazzmaster modified with Fender Wide Range humbuckers like those in his early ‘70s Telecaster Deluxe ¬– his first “serious” guitar. When Sonic Youth’s gear was stolen in 1999, Lee’s first Telecaster was among the guitars taken and was one of the few pieces recovered, albeit with a new powder blue finish courtesy of the thieves.

    Perhaps the most interesting lost-and-found item is Lee’s Travis Bean Artist (no. 375) played on the song “Kool Thing” (Goo, 1991) which “looked like someone had stuck it in a campfire for an hour or two” and “looked kind of cool,” but has been restored to its original condition at the request of Sonic Youth’s crew who “couldn’t stand the way it looked,” says Lee.

    Upstairs is the master tape archive where the entirety of Sonic Youth’s recorded output is painstakingly cataloged. If you’ve made it this far, then we probably don’t need to say too much about the mixdown reels for Evol, Daydream Nation, Sister, and so on. But we’ll keep a lookout for the possibility of an SYR record with Nels Cline.

    Teenage Riot - Sonic Youth


    You're it
    No, you're it
    Hey, you're really it
    You're it
    No I mean it, you're it

    Say it
    Don't spray it
    Spirit desire (face me)
    Spirit desire (don't displace me)
    Spirit desire
    We will fall

    Miss me
    Don't dismiss me

    Spirit desire

    Spirit desire [x3]
    We will fall
    Spirit desire
    We will fall
    Spirit desire [x3]
    We will fall
    Spirit desire
    We will fall

    Everybody's talking 'bout the stormy weather
    And what's a man do to but work out whether it's true?
    Looking for a man with a focus and a temper
    Who can open up a map and see between one and two

    Time to get it
    Before you let it
    Get to you

    Here he comes now
    Stick to your guns
    And let him through

    Everybody's coming from the winter vacation
    Taking in the sun in a exaltation to you
    You come running in on platform shoes
    With Marshall stacks
    To at least just give us a clue
    Ah, here it comes
    I know it's someone I knew

    Teenage riot in a public station
    Gonna fight and tear it up in a hypernation for you

    Now I see it
    I think I'll leave it out of the way
    Now I come near you
    And it's not clear why you fade away

    Looking for a ride to your secret location
    Where the kids are setting up a free-speed nation, for you
    Got a foghorn and a drum and a hammer that's rockin'
    And a cord and a pedal and a lock, that'll do me for now

    It better work out
    I hope it works out my way
    'Cause it's getting kind of quiet in my city's head
    Takes a teen age riot to get me out of bed right now

    You better look it
    We're gonna shake it
    Up to him

    He acts the hero
    We paint a zero
    On his hand

    We know it's down
    We know it's bound too loose
    Everybody's sound is round it
    Everybody wants to be proud to choose
    So who's to take the blame for the stormy weather
    You're never gonna stop all the teenage leather and booze

    It's time to go round
    A one man showdown
    Teach us how to fail

    We're off the streets now
    And back on the road
    On the riot trail

    Sonic Youth Arent Dude-Core - Soft Focus - Episode 2


    Like This? You Should Subscribe Here Now:
    In the second of this UK-based round of Soft Focus, Ian saddles up beside Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, perennially fine composers, writers, and artists—and one-half of Sonic Youth. After twice escaping certain disaster, first at the hands of a disappearing interviewee and second at a few haphazardly placed plastic water bottles, Ian recaptures this episode and once again delivers on his promise of insightful, fruit-bearing conversation.

    Come with Soft Focus as we retreat from the world and into the woods in search of some forgotten remedy for lame stream radio pollution, hideous condominiums, and brutish power tripping police. In between walks around the lake and contemplating existence, we'll interview some of the most intriguing artists of this underground rock and roll culture we covet as our own cure for the world's square minded music industry. In Noisey's long form interview show, Soft Focus, we delve deep into the minds and hearts of some of the most influential and seminal musicians to grace the underground stage.
