Your mother dresses you funny.

No, not you Sonic Youth, you dress yourselves quite nicely. Where has the youth gone? Certainly not away, or into retirement, that's for sure. If anything they're busier than ever... touring Europe, Kim Gordon releasing Chronicle number 2.. "The Destroyed Room: B-Sides and Rarities" is even available on Dec. 12th... whoah. wait, what? A compilation b-side album?! Oh, yes! Don't worry, your eyes didn't just play a dirty trick on you. The band has picked it's previously vinyl only gems, and other unreleased treasures to coexist on one perfectly spherical disk.. ah, if only a vinyl addition would present itself before the holiday season sadly ends, or at least before I spend all of my holiday-related earnings.. Oh well. Expect the vinyl LP, double vinyl LP, that is, in 2007.
