Sonic Youth- Dirty, 1992



Lets work together today while we listen to this same album. Warning- most people will not like this album. But you probably know someone who does (it did make it to 83 on Billboard’s Top 100 in 1992).


This is a time machine back to a very different time. If you are a middle-aged former (never former!) punk rawker, you need this. This album came out summer of 1992. I don’t know about you, but that was a pretty great one for me. I was 15 years old and had just received a 1964.5 Ford Mustang. And I secretly taught myself to drive it during the days that summer, while my parents were at work.


But back to this album. If punk and grunge had a baby, and sent that baby to reform school where it hung out with some art-rock kids – this album is that baby.


Enjoy. Its ok to listen loud, fellow humans.
