The Younger Lovers is a Bay Area band that is carrying on with the tradition of being really good. The punk rock movement is alive and well in Northern California and The Younger Lovers can take a little slice of credit for that.

Sonic Youth – Sugar Kane

ep81 Sonic Youth – Sugar Kane

Sonic Youth

So I’m once again riding the Sonic Train. I usually go about 6 to 8 months; I’ll hear a Sonic Youth song here or there and think “mmmm, so good.” But that’s it. Then out of nowhere, the urge overtakes me and it’s all I’ll listen to for a week or two straight. I’m in it. Just picked up some vinyl this week- I’ll post photos as they arrive. A nice Sonic Youth/Jay Reatard split 7″; Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star; Sister; Evol; and Dirty (which contains the song of the show).
