Sonic Youth: The Rhapsody Interview (Exclusive)
by Sonic Youth
Released: Aug 2006
Label: Real Networks
Do you believe in rapture? We interviewed Thurston Moore on 06/06/06 hoping that it would be our last interview before the world ended, but that darned doomsday never came to pass. Moore talked about how the third song on Sonic Youth's Rather Ripped uses the word rapture in the same way that Blondie's 1980 hit did. He also geeked out on Swedish underground noise rock, life after Jim O'Rourke, what it's like to be a notable rock 'n' roll family living in suburbia and the surrealism of being in the same band for 25 years.
