C&L's Late Night Music Club With Sonic Youth

Sonic Youth's new album The Eternal, their sixteenth, came out yesterday. Here's the leadoff track, "Sacred Trickster", from Later... With Jools Holland last month.

Sonic Youth were one of the very first of the indie bands of the 1980s to jump to a major label. DGC signed the band hoping that they would act as a magnet for more credible acts to the label; they attracted a small band from Seattle called Nirvana shortly after. The Eternal marks Sonic Youth's return to the indies -- it's out on the hugely successful Matador Records.
