    Live multi-track recording of NYC legends…. Rare photos and liner notes galore…. Features the never-properly-released track “Kat ’n’ Hat”….Vinyl includes digital download coupon…..In the fall of 1985, Sonic Youth were touring the States following the release of their Bad Moon Rising LP.

    This show at Chicago’s Smart Bar was recorded on 4-track cassette and consists of live versions of most of the songs from that album, early performances of “Secret Girl” and “Expressway to Yr Skull” (later to be released on Evol) and a rare, never-before-released live rendition of “Kat ’n’ Hat.” Mixed and mastered by the band from the original tape source, this single-CD / double-LP edition includes liner notes by Gerard Cosloy and Sonic Youth engineer Aaron Mullan, plus unpublished photos by Pat Blashill and Steven Koress.

    “The ideal archival offering would meet a list of criteria: it should be an unreleased and sonically compelling recording of an amazing performance, which not only sheds some light on the known Sonic Youth catalog for the serious aficionado, but also captures the attention of the general fan. It’s a pretty tall order, but I think this tape from Chicago 1985 fits the bill…. It’s the earliest live multitrack of a Sonic Youth show known to exist. “Having now listened to this tape maybe 100 times, I can say this: it’s a killer show. The material was mostly released on the studio album Bad Moon Rising.

    The album is brilliant, but the material is also so visceral and improvisatory that it greatly benefits from the additional perspective offered by a live recording. Kim’s vocals, more detached on the album, are fierce here. Sheets of feedback insanity on the album which I always assumed to be lucky studio accidents turn out to be actual parts that Lee and Thurston can re-create at will.

    The album was recorded with Bob Bert on drums, but this show was one of the first after Bob left and Steve took over. Bob’s primal stomps doubtlessly propel the studio versions, but hearing these parts as interpreted by Steve’s systematic pummeling, illuminates the crucial transition to the Evol and Sister albums and beyond. We do get a taste of Evol too, with an early performance of ‘Expressway To Yr Skull’ and the first known live performance of ‘Secret Girl,’ plus an instrumental version of the rarely performed, and never released, ‘Kat ’n’ Hat.’” Aaron Mullan 2012

    After twenty-three years of explosive creativity sonic youth throws down what may be their heaviest classic since the genre-breaking daydream nation.

    Nurse is the nineteenth long player by the new york city supernova, an action explosion time magazine has already tagged as “sonic youth’s most adventurous and soul-stirring release to date, by a goddamn country mile.”

    Ten songs of american beauty and sonic death: on “pattern recognition” kim gordon takes justin timberlake’s hand and sticks it in a tendon-shredding meat grinder; they gay marriage the hell out of religious zealot war pigs cheney, rumsfeld, bush and ashcroft with the meditative “peace attack”; bare trees-era fleetwood mac jams with jealous again-era black flag on the heart-pounding “unmade bed” and “i love You golden blue”; the core reactor awesomeness of “paper cup exit” reduces such legends as led zeppelin and yes to just so much british schoolboy whimpering.

    Sonic Youth’s eponymous debut EP, reissued in a deluxe double- LP edition on the band’s own Goofin imprint, was recorded in late 1981 at Radio City Music Hall in NYC and originally released on composer Glenn Branca’s Neutral label.

    The album is loosely based on compositions the newly formed group had performed at that year’s week-long Noisefest event (and remains the only recorded document of an early line-up featuring actor Richard Edson on drums).

    The newly remastered vinyl also features extra live material from a 1981 gig, and a track from a previously unheard studio session.

    Side A:
