Video Rewind : Bull In The Heather By Sonic Youth

'Member this ol' thing? This was the jam in the 90s. I think I like this lp, Experimental Jet Set Trash And No Star more than most people. I think it's one of their best. Then again I don't think there is a turkey in Sonic Youth's catalog except maybe Sonic Nurse. That fucker was a serious turky. But this single and video is special. Weird this was a pop single. NOTHING is on the radio like this anymore. But back to the video. Kathleen Hanna looks a goood way. I read SY opened their recent 7/4 show in New York. That sounds nice.

I agree on that album- flashbacks to sitting in a gray cold SF apartment during college stoned listening to that album over and over - did you see Sonic youth play at the 4 o'clock friday show at del mar years ago? bull in the heather was so magical live - the little girl on her dad's shoulders next to me kept kicking me in the head

That Del Mar show was on my birthday. So I didn't want to be at the fairgrounds on my bday. Fuck it. I saw them with pavement and Mudhoney though, like many years prior for the EJSTNS lp. Put that in your fuggin' pipe and smoke it. xo
