Noise: Fiction Inspired by Sonic Youth by Peter Wild, Lee Ranaldo

By Peter Wild, Lee Ranaldo

For greater than twenty-five years, the antimelodic “noise” of Sonic early life has assaulted us, exhilarated us, encouraged us. Why?

Katherine Dunn says it is because they function within the foggy international among the true and the surreal. Mary Gaitskill says that Sonic formative years stuck her, years in the past, while she used to be falling. J. Robert Lennon says this is because Sonic formative years rip it aside. Emily Maguire used to be hooked simply because as soon as she used to be in love with chaos.

Their sound is caustic, elemental, nihilistic—and particularly in contrast to the other cult band ever to accomplish rock godhood. In Noise, twenty-one nice literary voices supply brief fiction in keeping with or encouraged through songs from Sonic Youth—a raucous coupling of track and literature that includes marrow-colored goo, severed fingers and deserted infants, Patty Hearst staring at the apocalypse on television, and different unruly photos of the Zeitgeist.
