Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth :: Transmissions

Though Sonic Youth ended a decade ago, the band’s archives have continued to surprise. The latest from the SY vault is In/Out/In (Three Lobed Recordings), a collection of instrumentals recorded during the band’s final era, including some with Jim O’Rourke and contributions from The Eternal bassist Mark Ibold. Ahead of the album’s release, Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth join host Jason P. Woodbury to discuss The Simpsons, the Geffen years, stolen (and recovered) guitars, the science fiction of William Gibson and Philip K. Dick, and much more on this episode of Transmissions, Aquarium Drunkard’s weekly podcast.
