Sonic Youth :: KCRW 2002/Star Power (Acoustic)

Do you watch Gossip Girl? Me neither, but apparently Sonic Youth do and made a guest appearance on the show last night (you can check out the cameo via Videogum, here). In short, the band play a wedding reception – specifically an acoustic version of “Star Power” (originally off Evol) which you can download for 99 cents via the band’s online store. Or iTunes.

Speaking of alternate renderings, in response to several emails regarding the acoustic Murray Street tracks, below are the versions the group laid down in 2002 while in Santa Monica guesting on Morning Becomes Eclectic. An interesting — if fairly straightforward — set, especially the interview discussing the impact 9/11 had on the recording Murray Street.
