Also, from Pitchfork: "NYC legends Sonic Youth have announced the first tour dates in support of their forthcoming album, Sonic Nurse. Apparently, the tour will kick off with one show in Asbury Park, New Jersey-- their only headlining U.S. date announced so far-- before the band heads to the other side of the globe to traverse Australia and New Zealand. After that, the band will reportedly fly (or possibly swim) back to the U.S. to join this summer's 20-date Lollapalooza tour, which will also feature the likes of Morrissey, The Flaming Lips, The Polyphonic Spree, and String Cheese Incident. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Le Tigre, and The Fire Theft are also in talks with festival coordinators about joining that tour. Of course, Lollapalooza '04 is still in its early stages of planning, so no dates have been made available for that as yet."
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
