Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo played three songs for Minnesota Public Radio's The Current yesterday. You haven't heard the songs like this - it's just the two of them, no percussion, one acoustic and one electric, but it still scorches and sounds larger than the music. Like this:
Sonic Youth - Poison Arrow (Live on The Current, 7-22-2009)(mp3)
The interview, which includes discussions of singing alone vs. together, lyrics, and the cereal box 45, is fantastic.
