Documentary to Air in September
August 31, 2002

MTV2 will premiere a new Sonic Youth documentary on September 8th, according to the band's official website. Directed by Chris Habib and narrated by Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, the doc features footage shot during the Murray Street sessions at the band's studio, which was only blocks from the World Trade Center disaster (in fact, the album is named for the street where a large section of one of the jumbo jet's engines was recovered). The documentary will also be available to download from starting in mid-September.

Sonic Youth
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.
