Sonic Youth Aren’t Trying To Make Blink 182 Record

Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth 'Rather Ripped'

’s Thurston Moore spoke with’s Allison Stewart about the band’s latest record ‘Murray Street’, due out next Tuesday. Moore said, “We aren’t making a record that’s slightly more accessible than any other Sonic Youth record with the intention of breaking into the mainstream youth market. That would be sort of disingenuous. I think we’d have to take a much more radical and much more embarrassing step of trying to make a record that sounds like, what? What’s huge? Blink-182? That would be sort of like grandma wearing a miniskirt.”
