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.
Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.
