Sonic Youth vs. The Fall. In October of 1988 Sonic Youth paid a visit to the John Peel show on BBC Radio 1 a week before the release of Daydream Nation. Having recorded with Peel just two years prior, the group used the ’88 session to pay tribute to UK post-punk godheads The Fall.
Kicking off with a jagged “My New House” (via The Fall’s 1985 lp This Nation’s Saving Grace), Sonic Youth imprint their own brand of babel strewn across the four covers…including a take on the Fall’s own rendition of the Kinks’ “Victoria”. Meta, indeed!
