SUPERB RADIO BRADCAST FROM AUSTRALIA 1989 Spawned from the burgeoning New York noise-rock movement of the early 1980s, the impulse for Sonic Youth s sound was necessity rather than aesthetics. As struggling artists working in an underground scene, the band could only afford cheap guitars, and subsequently used every method possible to mask evidence of their substandard instruments; alternate tunings, distortion, feedback and unusual playing techniques, such as hitting their strings with drum sticks, were all tactics employed by guitarists Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo, and bass player Kim Gordon, in this endeavor.
