Hi everybody! Since the original "Sonic Youth on bandcamp" thread was (presumably) accidentally deleted, I've gone through multiple archive.org links to reconstruct the highlights for historical posterity (no chit chat). We can also use this thread for future posts (sorry Soup Nazi!).

I guess that they will have all the Nugs titles up on bandcamp by the end of today. They're missing the Crawford Hall 1990 show, the '98 show, and the show at the Olympia in 2001. But they've been adding three shows or so each day. I just.....need more.


03.28.2020, 12:48 PM #14 halgreen

All of the Nugs shows (save Crawford 1990) are on bandcamp + Venlo 1983, the cotton crown 7”, and continental club 1986.

I’d really love to hear the rest of that show from the cotton crown 7” and I wonder if the smart bar 1985 show will be up soon. After that, what’s next??

Lee, Thurston, and Steve with Mats Gustafsson. Originally released in very limited quantities in 2000. Very sick noise from what I recall...

New link:

https://gustafssonmooreranaldoshelle...ystad-new-york

The cities' names have been reversed and the tracks are no longer called "Without Kim" I & II, just, well, "I" and "II". 'Sup with that?



04.11.2020, 05:19 PM #22 Chris Lawrence

I don't think they were initially called "Without Kim" when posted, I was just being a dork by actually acknowledging the name of the original disc. That Black Box set looks amazing, anyone here have one?



04.11.2020, 11:17 PM #23 The Soup Nazi

Well now you got me questioning my memory.
 
I can't remember whether they were called "Without Kim" (I and II), but since that was the name of the original tracks, I assumed they had also been changed once they, for some reason (and there has to be one, related to the label or Gordon or something), changed the disc title to Ystad - New York and the initial Bancamp page for the release was deleted (therefore deleting the item from my wishlist).

For the few folks here who may not know what the heck we're talking about, this is New York - Ystad on Discogs, and if you feel like getting the full Black Box Kulturbro 2000, prepare to shell out €2,499 for a mint copy (cheapest one, NM/VG+, goes for €2,400 - no reason to quibble over 99 Euros, huh?).




04.12.2020, 07:45 AM #24 radarmaker

It wasn't called Without Kim on the bandcamp, that was the first thing that struck me too. Curious.
I've got the Lightnin' 7" but not the rest of it. I suspect Mats trades them in to a certain Swedish free jazz store every now and then, as they seen to have a semi-regular source of loose copies.

Ulrich Krieger has been a member of Text of Light. I might have some records signed by him and Lee from when Text of Light performed in Mexico several years ago.

This record by Reinhold Friedl (released in 2003) has collaborations by both Lee and Ulrich Krieger:

Outside My Window The City Is Never Silent

A long out-of-print LP-only release, this single 30-minute track is a compendium utilizes selected material from the following titles: Amarillo Ramp, The Bridge, Deva, Spain; Fragments, El Oido, First Computer Piece, The View From Here [Root (for TM)], Semen Injection, To Mary, and Walker Groves. Sounds by: Kim Gordon, William Hooker, Takehisa Kosugi, Alan Licht, David Linton, Christian Marclay, Thurston Moore, Jim O'Rourke, Lee Ranaldo, Sudden Infant, William Winant. The voices of: Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver, George Cowdery, Thom Degesu, Kim Gordon, Courtney Love, Thurston Moore, Cody Ranaldo, Lee Ranaldo, Leah Singer.

You Are Everywhere and Nowhere, All at Once: The sounds of forgotten conversations, voices of loved ones, talks delivered via wire, crosscut with various tone poems (music(s)), newly formulated dream theories. You are listening to a conversation that took place in Heaven, some time ago.

This piece grows out of recent works dealing with phrases constructed from various recycled bits of voice and sound, the silences between them, and the cross-pollinations which occur as they are juxtaposed in different ways. The sound components have been gathered from across a large number of works I’ve done thru the years. I decided to use these bits and selections as the raw material from which to create a sort of sonic journal or notebook. In the last few years I’ve done a few sound installations based around a set of fragments of voices which I have collected, and most of these are drawn upon here. The voices are those of friends, family, loved ones and other artists, and although chosen for personal reasons my hope is that the various voices will overlay to create a new narrative of their own. This piece was originally created for a Belgian radio broadcast in 2000.

-Lee Ranaldo

Original LP released by Chocolate Monk and Hell's Half Halo, summer 2002.

Includes pdf of LP art and liner notes.

Master=Dik


05.15.2020, 09:05 AM #98 Chris Lawrence


conveniently timed after i've just updated the discography...

 


this is awesome! that was such a weird show, i remember watching a really terrible quality webcast of it. somewhere i may still have that file, actually... we waited forever for "J'Accuse Ted Hughes" and now we have the whole show!

i'll admit, i was kinda hoping they might release a soundboard from bumbershoot '99 - those early versions of nyc ghosts tunes were so brave to try in a football arena, and they sounded awesome! i think my tape does it justice but it's missing some of 'nyc ghosts' and frankly it would just be cool to hear in pristine quality... but this is nice too.
 



not on nugs (yet?) btw...


05.15.2020, 09:41 AM #100 radarmaker
The Rolling Stone article implies that bandcamp will be their primary portal from now on:

"The band had been making some of its live content available on another site, but drummer Steve Shelley, who oversees their vaults in New Jersey, began hearing from fellow musicians about Bandcamp. Both its ease of use and its potential profit margins — 85% of sales going to bands — appealed to him and his former bandmates."

Sonic Youth's FLACs on Bandcamp are 16/44.1? (I still don't know; by the time their Bandcamp operation started I had ran out of money
 
). If that's the case, their price is sandwiched between Nugs' CD-quality and high-resolution files. Take Live In Los Angeles 1998:

Nugs 16/44.1: $9.95
Bandcamp ?: $11.00
Nugs 24-bit: $12.95

To determine the reason, you have to factor in of course the platform's fees and, uh, other vicissitudes of the modern world or summat ANYWAY, I have downloaded tons of 24-bit tunes from Bandcamp; the thing, to quote Forrest Gump, is you never know what you're gonna get! With some exceptions: Jim O'Rourke's sleep like it's winter is listed as a 24/48 album, and Intakt is the only label I've come across there which makes available their releases in different resolutions - with a significant price difference. For instance, Ingrid Laubrock + Kris Davis' Blood Moon is $9 in 16-bit, $15.80 in 24/96. Ouch.

Previously only convened for a studio session that produced two obscure compilation tracks, Kim, Jim and Alan took the stage at Issue Project Room back in 2003, joined by their friends Chris Corsano (drums) and Tim Barnes (drums), for a breathless twenty-minute No Wave electronic freakout. alanlicht.bandcamp.com

Big flood of SYRs today, including the Carrboro "Perspective Musicales" gig, which is a must-hear if you haven't had the pleasure!


06.19.2020, 05:03 PM #125 radarmaker

Know anything about the '81 Cat's Cradle show Thurston mentions after Kool Thing, Chris? His "week after MTV launched" comment places it in early August..

06.19.2020, 11:59 PM #126 Chris Lawrence


I'll have to listen for the quote but I'm skeptical of them playing outside of NYC in August 1981...I don't think they played Cat's Cradle before November '82.




06.20.2020, 07:24 AM #129 radarmaker


Yeah, seems unlikely and I assumed it was being confused for that one too, but the reference to the MTV launch does support '81. He calls it "one of their first outside NY city limits", but that could apply equally to the Savage Blunder date.

Thurston Moore - "Canteloupe" (sic - mispelled in the tradition of some punk flyers, I guess; the artwork gets it right, though).

Quote:
Cantaloupe is a song about the dance of romance and surrealism, where the hallucinations of wild dreams come true.

OK, since none of you lazy cows
 
answered my question, I asked a Dimer who posted he had "bought his first six Sonic Youth shows from Bandcamp". This, said he:

Live At Brixton Academy 1992: 16/48
Live At Cabaret Metro Chicago, IL 2002: 24/44.1
Live At CBGB's 1988: 24/44.1
Live At The Orange Peel 2004: 24/48
Live In Yugoslavia 1985/1987: 24/48
Daydream Nation Live In Glasgow, Scotland 2007: 24/48

And so, Nugs has been ripping people off, say I.

Gata Pirâmide's Early Demos (two tracks) is now on Bandcamp via Vampire Blues:


Quote:
In 2015 Gata Pirâmide starts a cycle of rehearsals and exchange of references between Valério, Steve and Kishimoto. In this record of the first ideas the band invites the listener to feel the freshness and purity through the sound.

Valério and Steve Shelley met in 2013 when Steve performed with Lee Ranaldo & the Dust at Largo da Batata, a free outdoor concert in São Paulo, Brazil. It was in 2015, when Steve returned to the capital, that the duo had a chance to play together for the first time. With Sao-Paulo multi-instrumentalist Paulo Kishimoto on bass and synths and a few unfinished compositions by Valério (guitar, electric kalimba and voice) in the repertoire - and a name inspired by an ancient Egyptian goddess - the group made its debut on the stage of a small club in the city center.

released August 7, 2020

valério - kalimba, guitar
paulo kishimoto - bass, percussion, synths
steve shelley - drums

NEW TITLES ADDED TODAY...

Quote:
World Trade Center Benefit 2001

Some brief notes: Thurston Kim and I all lived downtown, and our studio on Murray Street was downtown. In fact pieces of one of the engines landed on the roof of our studio building, that's how close we were. The events of 9/11 were traumatic for so many, and too close for comfort for some of us. Many people were doing heroic work around the clock in the aftermath. This benefit show at The Bowery Ballroom was literally put together in a weeks time, shortly after we regained access to the studio and our gear. The show was in benefit for Central American workers killed in World Trade Center attacks and featured the following performers, in addition to SY: Tom Verlaine band, Paul Flaherty/Chris Corsano duo, Eileen Myles-Kim-Jim-DJ Olive quartet, Cat Power and a set by DJ Olive. Five new songs that we'd been working on - that later appeared on the Murray Street album - were debuted at this show in nascent forms.

Live in Denver 1986

An all-ager-rager in Denver; I am so glad this one is up cuz my late '80s live-tape-swapping-obsessive self has always been hopped up about this 1986 gig. It was right off a Europe run and a week later flat-splat into a summer Evol USA tour, SY were kicking around in a hot van gigging everywhere, coast to coast and back with the likes of Saccharine Trust and Dinosaur. It's well documented in Lee journals and Thurston's epic/hilarious Forced Exposure tour diary, the latter of which has a great shotgun-seat-sourced pic of T at the wheel as the van left the Lincoln Tunnel behind, off to finally join the trail their newfound SST brothers and sisters were also carving out town to town. Seems like a lot of those tour setlists understandably hit heavy on Evol tracks, even the previous year's Bad Moon Rising tunes took a backseat ("Death Valley '69" reportedly only played once this whole tour). But the Denver kids at the Turnverein (German Castle?) got the band midtour in ferocious form though with only five new tunes, six if you count the later-released "White Kross". The mix on this is perfectly hot-board, guitars skull-split left and right, drums sounding amazing, the whole band almost blurry and slo-mo at times. Very much woozin it up through an especially-psychedelic middle stretch of "Death To Our Friends"/"I Love Her All the Time"/"Flower"/"Green Light" that must have melted stoner kids' brains. You lose sense of which guitar is which as it all congeals into a big trippy gelatinous pile. Then a "Brother James"/"Kill Yr Idols" one-two punch that sounds like the rawest craziest versions I've heard, and finally "Expressway" taking one last peak then cooling it down (then my tape cut off). No knowledge of openers Death Valley Girls, Cage of Reason and Happy Girls, but lots of inspired stuff was in place in Denver's early '80s: Tom Headbanger gigs, Bum Kon, The Frantix, pre-SF Jello. Imagine this to have been a cool event for sure. Blasted this tape a lot in the car and it had a Feelies '86 gig on the other side, so it was especially great to see them together on a bill later in 2008 at Battery Park. Someone I traded with and got this tape from made me a pink tie-dye J-card too which was nice icing on the cake! Hope you like this loud and large set like I do.

Lee has also added some stuff to his bandcamp:


Ambient Loop For Vancouver

Quote:
These recordings were created utilizing sessions in 2003 with Alan Licht, Christian Marclay and William Hooker, and initially conceived as backing tracks for a live performance by myself and Leah Singer in Vancouver, BC. Four short excerpts were released in 2004 as a 7” on Important Records; each of the 500 copies came with a numbered and signed fine art print as the cover. The following year the full-length piece was released as an exclusive CD which was packaged with select copies of the 10th Anniversary edition of my first book, Road Movies, from Soft Skull Press. In 2015 Important Records released a limited edition of this full piece as a special digi-pak CD. Playing on 'repeat' is encouraged.

--LR 2020


North Six: Giffoni​/​Ranaldo​/​O'Rourke

Quote:
“Hi - there's a new item up on my BC site - a long out-of-print performance by myself, Jim O'Rourke and Carlos Giffoni called "North Six" after the Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue where this August 2003 show took place. Originally released on a 3" CD series by the Antiopic label, it's now available once again, so give it a listen if you are interested! I have more stuff in the works to be uploaded in the near future!

Hope everyone is staying safe out there!
-Lee”

"Confusion Is Sex now available via Sonic Youth's Archive on bandcamp - digital/vinyl and cds available. hidden/bonus track available with purchase of complete record."


This is the Goofin' edition without Kill Yr. Idols, so I wonder if the "hidden/bonus track" comes from the EP. If anybody goes for it, please reveal the mystery here.

Lee's "Glacial Trio (Studio Excerpt)" is part of the just-released Three Lobed Recordings at 20: An Overview compilation. Three Lobed's cats say this: "20 years of a label summarized over 34 songs. Hard to make but easy to listen to."
 
The details:

24. Lee Ranaldo - Glacial Trio (Studio Excerpt) 04:08

Here comes the icing on the cake: it's available for a name-your-price
 
, and "any proceeds from this compilation will be donated to the the Land Loss Prevention Project ("LLPP" - www.landloss.org ), the same group we have passed funds lately from other endeavors. The LLPP, based in Durham NC, was founded in 1982 by the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers to curtail epidemic losses of Black-owned land in North Carolina (including farmland and "heirs property," a complex topic hard to explain here, worth a little research if you don't know the term). They are a great and respected organization and we're excited to give."

New release from Sonic Youth

Sonic Youth just released
Live in Torino 1987. Here’s what they say about it:

"Our Sister lp was released on June 1st and by June 4th we were on tour and somehow joined by hero Iggy Pop for our London Town & Country encore. This show a few weeks later, was recorded nearly halfway through our Summer tour of Europe on June 21, 1987 and our only Italian concert of 1987's journey. Italy would grow to be one of our favorite places to visit and it still is to this day.

From Alan Licht's Bandcamp page:

Nels Cline, Carlos Giffoni, Alan Licht & Lee Ranaldo--Nothing Makes Any Sense

Original sealed CD of a live show recorded at Tonic in 2007, released by No Fun Productions. Gatefold hard cardboard digipak with "liner notes" by Peter Laughner. Cover art by Lee Ranaldo.

Laughner had been dead for thirty years by then, hence the scare quotes...


12.04.2020, 12:40 AM #184 The Soup Nazi


The year's last Bandcamp Friday starts in a coupla hours, and the sonic cats have new goodness for us. First:

Live In Copenhagen 2000

A good snapshot into the Sonics' live state of mind circa 2000 in the form of a sprawling, and often exploratory set of some standards and five tracks from their recently-released NYC Ghosts & Flowers. While not pleasant to invoke the infamous gear theft in California prior to that album's birth, it's somewhat important for perspective here. The creation of the album not only inspired recommission of guitars that hadn't been dragged out in a long time (as well as breaking in new gear), but the band's creation process itself became revamped in a way definitely reflected in the twisting, expansive record. I always kinda thought of it as a big ball of twine, with all the individual components being dense yet leaving great space for its players; Jim O'Rourke's studio aid evolved into him joining the live lineup here allowing often for Kim's guitar figures to factor more into the equation. When Lee announces at the top of the set "we're gonna take our time tonight and play real slow and long," ensuing opener "Schizophrenia" swirls more delicately than some of the roaring '87 initial live versions, though throttlers like "White Kross" and "Brother James" stoke up the usual fire and add additional blast with the expanded lineup.

But showcasing of the new songs here is the key stamp of this gig, which plays like a soundtrack more than just a standard rock gig. On record and as a concept, the LP most certainly illuminated the spirit of NYC's fiery poetic past (especially the late 60's) where writers, free-verse-spielers, jazz musicians, impressionist filmmakers blurred and co-existed. While SY always processed/re-zoned/reflected the multi-culti elements of NYC live, their transferral of these particular songs to live forum made for a heightened meditative element to their rock experience more than ever (to this point). "Nevermind (What Was It Anyway)" steams and simmers into long passages of Kim's free intonations, the slow cauldron bubble of "Lightnin's" intro over the mild traffic free-jam of FX is reminiscent of her call-and-response ala "Ghost Bitch's" disruptive stew of yore. "Free City Rhymes" features a slow burn of arpeggios and harmonics with Thurston's voice also in hovering/orating mode, and Lee's natural Beat penchant to infuse such lyrical approach into SY's overall vibe is at high tide on "NYC Ghosts & Flowers", a real set peak. "Renegade Princess'" Neu-chug gives way to a long cool-outro with geyser-like emissions of shifting shapes and new brushstrokes.

This gig is the sound of the band locking down new live potential and vocab, easing back when needed to let the colors blend into the mix, new phrases to evolve, letting songs rise and fall naturally. While these particular poetic/collage-like elements in the setlist are punctuated by some classics, you can almost sense SY were about to embark on a live period that spotlighted their enthusiasm to chase down all the sounds this new lineup and instrumentation hinted at. Surely it wasn't long before the SYR recordings and often fully-instrumental live sets sans the classics started to pop into focus, but for now this show, like NYC itself, displays the great pastiche of elements coming together to create something all new.

- Brian Turner

New release from Thurston Moore with Zac Davis: 7​/​7​/​77

Recorded when Thurston Moore was hosting, archiving, and engaging with the subterranean global noise scene during its early-mid 2000s apex. Zac Davis was still a member of the notorious Lambsbread. The two connected through the channels of the East Coast/Midwest free-noise axis. The actual day of the recording, which was a mantra heads down swoop in the basement of 22 Round Hill Road Northampton Massachusetts, is lost to the fogs of dusted memory - its true organic providence. Zac released his own document of this event on his Maim & Disfigure CDR label in 2008. The recording here, from TM's machine, has a more pronounced sonic prayer fidelity. Zac lives by his own sky juice rules which are no rules. The music lives forever.

Feedback guitar: Thurston Moore

about

The last I saw Peter Rehberg was right after David Bowie passed and the two of us were thrown together to DJ a memorial of sorts for the thin white duke at Café Oto in London and it was one of the most joyous times I can remember as we’d trade off choosing Bowie tracks for a crowd of people still dazed by the all-of-suddeness of the rock n roll hero's leaving. Peter obviously adored Bowie and at one point he became so enthralled with the musicality in all its idiosyncratic, experimental and ineffable pop magic that he began to dance and howl along and the night seemed endless and a welcome rebirth of sorts for everyone in the room. And now Peter has left us as well and I think about how incredibly lovely he was that eve in genuine heartfelt regard for what he innately knew of the essence that is creative life. A rock n roll hero forever.

Steve plays on Emma Tricca's cover of Bert Jansch's "It Don't Bother Me", just posted to Bandcamp. (Actually, Steve plays on Emma's whole St. Peter album, from 2018... Was that mentioned here? I don't know! Bloody board won't let me search!) There's a "b-side" to this download-only single, "Good Morning Diner", but for some reason it's not on BC; you can find it elsewhere, though (Boomkat, for example).

Kim Gordon & J Mascis - "Abstract Blues"

New release from Sonic Youth:

Live In Kyiv, Ukraine 1989

Sonic Youth release live recording from Kyiv, Ukraine April 14, 1989 to benefit World Central Kitchen and relief to Ukraine.

Riding on the wave of the critical success of Daydream Nation, Sonic Youth's first foray into the former USSR came in April of 1989 with shows in Vilnius, Leningrad, Moscow and Kyiv, the first opportunity for Lithuanians, Russians, and Ukrainians respectively to get a realtime gander at the fabled NYC underground in the flesh (with Bon Jovi lagging four months behind to rep NJ for the hordes). Anarchic, locked, and loaded with fresh jams from Daydream and vintage chestnut "Brother James", SY blister here into a rabid pack of ready-for-action Ukrainians only blessed previously with the likes of Nick Cave and Neubauten drifting into their territory. Though the post-Iron Curtain sojourn was cut short prematurely (like this recording!) after this gig, the Sonics left an indelible impression of the true sounds of freedom with attendees that included Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hutz who was forever changed in its wake. This revisiting of the April 14 set honors that nation's spirit and proceeds will benefit World Central Kitchen wck.org, and timestamps a moment where new ears got transported for a first time.

"That SY Kyiv show was life changing for all musicians that were there... we were already attuned to Nick Cave, Einsturzende Neubauten, S Pistols and Discharge but these were the new vitamins we needed. I made a decision to experience NY right there. Plus my friends VV were opening so i got in free 🤟🏼. The fact that it wasn't shut down half way through like all other punk gigs was the doing of a Ukrainian man named Mikhailo Gorbachev, who set up the atmosphere of political “springtime” and a promise of change.” - Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello

"In general, few people said how much the Sonics, with their arrival, promoted the entire soviets, and not just Kyiv. After all, in fact, perhaps, with that tour they hammered the final nail in the coffin of the soviets, and it was as if they let us in Kyiv breathe a mixture that was finally suitable for life." - Sergey Popovich (Siggy Pop)

Founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen (WCK) is first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises while working to build resilient food systems with locally led solutions. WCK has served more than 70 million fresh meals to people impacted by natural disasters and other crises around the world. WCK’s Resilience Programs strengthen food and nutrition security by training chefs and school cooks; advancing clean cooking practices; and awarding grants to farms, fisheries, and small food businesses while also providing educational and networking opportunities. Learn more at wck.org.

released April 14, 2022

EQ/Mastering - Aaron Mullan
original FOH sound - Terry Pearson
cover photos - Alexej Zaika

Oh jeez, I'm sorry! That was stupid. I should have merged it to this thread. It was very late and I was very tired of chasing broken archive links.
