Book summary

Autobiography/ Poetry. Sonic Youth spent most of the 80s sleeping on floors, driving used vans, touring across a neurotic America and the globe beyond. Before they became part of the national bloodstream, they created an underground swell, encouraging adventurous listeners to jack into their matrix of pantonality, feedback, and chiming scree. All the while, Lee Ranaldo was drinking in the landscape, the clubs, and the people, and recording a journal of this wild ride that reads as an ON THE ROAD of the 80s: "so as sorry as it was in one way, in another it was a liberation, which is always grand; it was a shedding of veils and an expose of what lies lurking. Bravo!" [via]
