Album artwork for Murray Street by Sonic Youth

SONIC YOUTH have turned 21 years of age this year. The apprenticeship is over. They are now legal to fully rock on. Murray Street is where it gets interesting. The name comes from the street where Sonic Youth create rock'n'roll. This album was written by Sonic Youth with newest member JIM O'ROURKE, who helped engineer and did the mixing under the watchful eye and baffling behavior of the original SY members. Packaged in a gatelfold sleeve with a cover photograph taken by Monique, of two children secured by webbing, at one with goddess earth, and inside photography by Milanese lensman Stefano Giovaninni. There are seven songs: 1. Disconnection Notice - about the loss of questionable power to moldy fig authority 2. The Empty Page - a song lifted from the journals of John Cage one sun-filled summer day in Paris, 1968 3. Rain On Tin - about the heraldry of camaraderie in the face of political insanity. 4. Strawberry Patch - about Kim 5. Karenology - about Lee 6. Plastic Sun - a song which reaches out with an olive branch soaked in scum for the N'Sync- and Durst-addled record industry 7. Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style - about adult culture as the new underground
