LIVESound: Sonic Youth's "Intro / Brave Men Run (In My Family)" Live in '85


Will they or won't they ever come back? That's been the question that arises each time Sonic Youth's name has made its way into headlines since nearly a year ago from today. With all parties currently involved in other projects, we might not see their hiatus end any time soon, but the legendary alternative noise rockers are at least making the most of their downtime by digging into archives, brushing off outdated recording grit and giving listeners a glossy fix with a stream of reissues and live releases -- the first being Sonic Youth - Smart Bar - Chicago 1985. It's a live outtake from a 4-track made during the band's Bad Moon Rising-era tour on August 11, 1985 at the location notated in the title, and will feature 14 tracks over the course of two LPs. "Intro / Brave Men Run (In My Family)" off the '85 classic is an early preview of how well two of those performances cleaned up for this release. Turn back the hands of time and make like Sonic Youth never went away to begin with below...
