Label: SYR
It was just a matter of time before Sonic Youth collaborated with Japanese noise eminence Merzbow. The only danger was that, by waiting until 2005, the results might have felt like an obligatory move for all concerned. But that's not what happened. Saxophonist Mats Gustafsson is also on hand here to co-direct the proceedings, and is the key guest musician in the early going. But it's Merzbow's electronic damage announcing itself near the halfway mark of this hour-long piece that signals the beginning of a long climax. Any fan of Sonic Youth's out-there self-released albums ought to hear this.
