Sonic Youth Sign To Matador, Interweb Responds

After nearly two decades with DGC, Sonic Youth return to indie land via a new one-album deal with stalwart label Matador, which is co-owned by fairweather SY ally/antagonist Gerard Cosloy. It was Cosloy's small Homestead label that released Bad Moon Rising in 1985, and it was Cosloy in an interview taped for the Half Japanese DVD The Band Who Would Be King who put the Youth in league with Bon Jovi. Time heals, apparently. It's not like he wrote a song about Kim Gordon's underwear, after all. Speaking of the fabulous Kim...

Sheer genius.
