Silver Session (For Jason Knuth)

Label: Sonic Youth Records

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

"Silver Sessions were taken from an evening when Sonic Youth had to do vocal overdubs for 'A Thousand Leaves' - the band upstairs was hammering out some funky metal overdrive and we couldn't "sing" properly - we decided to fight fire with molten lava and turned every amp we owned on to 10+ and leaned as many guitars and basses we could plug in against them and they roared/howled like airplanes burning over the pacific - we could only enter the playing room with hands pressed hard against our ears and even then it was physically stunning - we ran a sick outmoded beatbox through the P.A. and it blew out horrendous distorted pulsations.

Of course we recorded the whole thing and a few months later we mixed it down into sections, ultra-processing it to a wholly other "piece" - in a way, it's my favorite record of ours -- I hope Jason [Knuth, to whom the release is dedicated] digs it - keep on keep on keep on - thurston/sonic youth/nyc 1998."
