Biography

sonic youth the eternal

The Eternal is Sonic Youth’s 2009 celebration of newfound freedom. After many years signed to an ever precarious corporate label, the band has been liberated and is releasing this CD with their friends at Matador. Inspirations ran high in preparation for the recording. Abandoning the time tested routine of writing and rehearsing a cycle of songs in one time ... Read more in Amazon's Sonic Youth Store

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Amplified may be the clearest distillation yet of ths explosive and vibrant time for the music scene of New York." --Other Music, May 2006

Product Description

Amplified: New Music Meets Rock, 1981–1986 is the third release in a series of CDs compiled from The Kitchen’s archive that documents historic concert recordings at The Kitchen from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s. While the first two releases, New Music, New York 1979 and Steve Reich and Musicians, Live 1977 focused on major figures of new and experimental music from The Kitchen’s first decade, Amplified moves into the early 1980s, representing a vocabulary that emerged from the avant-garde, minimalist, and No New York scenes in the 1960s and 1970s in New York City. Highlights from the CD include the layered guitars of Rhys Chatham's works; classical cello played through electronic effects pedals by Arthur Russell; a Christian Marclay piece created with multiple turntables “prepared” with his “To and Fro-nograph”; one of the earliest Sonic Youth concert recordings; two tracks by Swans; and a rarely performed large orchestral piece by Elliott Sharp. Even now,! more than twenty years after these shows took place, these recordings capture an explosive energy that still feels vibrant and vital.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exclusive Live Tracks From the Archives December 29, 2010
By JC
Format:Audio CD
A period piece that shows the intersection of very vital music at a special time. Diverse but with unifying elements. Some of the avant artists here actually make more of a squall than the punks.

One complaint might be that almost anyone interested in this would feel at least half this material definitely deserves full-length treatment. What's here is just a taste.
