Sonic Youth’s soundtrack to French film Simon Werner a Disparu will be released as a digital download on Jan. 25 via Midheaven.com, as a CD on Feb. 15, and on vinyl as of March 1.
Here’s a trailer for the film, which hits DVD in France on Feb. 1 with a bonus CD featuring Sonic Youth’s music from the film.
By the time Sonic Youth took the stage the audience seemed to have magically doubled and the roar ripped through like Santa Ana winds. The crowd’s cacophony, though, had nothing on Sonic Youth as they tore into a nuclear “No Way.” Thurston Moore appeared larger than life, his custom, namesake Fender Jazzmaster looking like a toy matched against his lanky frame. Ranaldo showed no ill effects from his broken wrist as he hammered away at his custom namesake Fender Jazzmaster guitar while singing lead on “Walkin’ Blue.” A triple attack of guitars and vocals from Gordon, Ranaldo and Moore had heads bobbing throughout the venue.
