SYR6 nearing completion
March 27, 2003
There is a lengthy news article at Pitchfork which I'll summarize it a bit here for the folks with a short attention span:
- There are rumours that SYR6, the collaboration record with french singer Brigitte Fontaine, would have been expanded to a DVD/CD release with extra documentary video material. It may be released sometime next month.
- Sonic Youth play New York City's Anthology Film Archives on April 12th in tribute to filmmaker Stan Brakhage. This begins a tour with dates in the US and Europe.
- They are planning on reissuing back catalog VHS videos on DVD.
- Lee Ranaldo's Text Of Light will be touring Europe for a few dates. The ensemble consists of Ranaldo, Alan Licht, Ulrich Kreiger, DJ Olive, and Tim Barnes. William Hooker will play the drums on one date, too.

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.
