    The Sonic Youth Store is now available via kungfunation.com. In addition to t-shirts straight from the source, the store now has posters, programs, the vinyl editions of the latest DGC albums, the SYR catalog and other Sonic items sometimes in limited quantities. Look for more items to be added as soon as soon as Kung Fu gets their paws on ’em.

    Right now, Lee is on tour in Europe with Text of Light featuring Lee, Alan Licht, Ulrich Krieger, and Tim Barnes. The group will perform at the Barcelona Primavera festival the same day as Sonic Youth, and in St. Brieuc Steve Shelley will perform w/ Text of Light.

    Also on May 28 at the Primavera festival, Steve will perform with longtime SY friend and collaborator Christina Rosenvinge.

    Meanwhile, Kim and Thurston will warm up their chops at the Le Weekend festival in Stirling, Scotland on May 27. The two will perform as Mirror/Dash, and Thurston will play in the Dream/Aktion Unit.


    Sonic Youth are putting the finishing touches on their Deluxe Edition re-issue of 1990’s "Goo". The 2xCD edition will be released by Universal/Geffen while the 4xLP vinyl edition will be released by SY’s own Goofin’ imprint via SLR. The Deluxe Edition of "Goo" will include the original LP re-mastered along with remixed/re-mastered 8-track demos, B-sides, rehearsal tracks, studio out-takes and more. A deluxe full-color LP size booklet will be included in the vinyl box set with essays by Byron Coley and Mark Kates.

    SYR 6 is also being prepared for release. This CD edition of the SYR series is a recording of the benefit concert held at and for The Anthology Film Archives on April, 12 2003. Sonic Youth performed with drummer/percussionist Tim Barnes. Part of the proceeds of this CD will again benefit the Anthology Film Archives.

    Coming in the Fall: While in Melbourne last June, Lee, Thurston, Steve, and Jim recorded direct to disc at Corduroy studios for what is being released as a limited-edition double vinyl album. Eight hundred copies of the four-track instrumental record are being pressed by Saucerlike records. One hundred of those will be available through sonicyouth.com.
