Audible Editor Reviews

Taken from veteran Canadian radio broadcaster and music journalist Alan Cross' four-volume audio guide to alternative rock, this is a short but in-depth account of one of the most uncompromising and influential bands in recent history. Rock lovers looking for a fact-filled crash course in Sonic Youth's history - from New York no-wave iconoclasts to indie rock darlings - need look no further. Cross' many years on the air come through in his cool, confident voice and matter-of-fact style, which makes listening a pleasure.

Publisher's Summary

In this new audiobook, broadcaster and music writer Alan Cross narrates the definitive history of Sonic Youth. Cross succeeds once again in revealing the fascinating history behind the music in the same compelling way we've come to expect from his long broadcasting career.

Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.
