Sonic Youth Reissuing Two Albums on Vinyl


Apparently, Thurston Moore & Co. decided that Tom Waits was looking a little lonely this holiday season. Much like the cookie-monster-singin’ legend, Sonic Youth will release a couple of it early albums on vinyl, one just in time for the holidays, one just after.

Prefix reports that the band will release Sister on Dec. 14 (on 180-gram vinyl, both black and limited-edition green versions) and Bad Moon Rising on Jan. 18 (ditto, black and orange). Meanwhile, the band is also finishing up the latest of its Sonic Youth Recordings, a French film soundtrack called Simon Werner a Disparu.

Sonic Youth will round out 2010 with a pair of shows. On Dec. 30, the band will play Manchester’s Manchester Academy with The Pop Group, and on Dec. 31, both bands will play London’s Hammersmith Apollo with Shellac and Factory Floor.
