Sonic Youth: 25 Years of Kool
On stands June 01, 2006

 

FILTER Issue 21

Coolness is more than T-shirt deep and Sonic Youth-more than any other band-has expertly exemplified this aesthetic over the course of their 25 years.  But has their Kool Kulture outshined the music? We speak with the Sonics, as well as their cadre of indie elite: Stephen Malkmus, Kathleen Hanna, Mike Watt, Ian MacKaye, Marc Jacobs, and more.  But there's more Koolness in store.  We deconstruct DJ Shadow's dip into the S.F. Bay Area hyphy culture, fly high in the apocalyptic skies with Muse (in a helicopter over N.Y.C., no less), introduce the Futureheads to their post-punk heroes Wire, and wax nostalgic with the stars of the Oscar-winning film COVER
