Seeking Sonic Truth On Murray Street: Sonic Youth

Wayne Robins, waynerobins.blogspot.com, 18 September 2002

I'M AMUSED EACH day when I cross Murray Street, a miles-long, largely residential street that wends its way from downtown Flushing north through various small neighborhoods until it ends somewhere in the reaches of Whitestone, borough of Queens, N.Y. I keep thinking it would be cool if Sonic Youth lived and recorded around my turf. It is really an excellent place for families: Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore's offspring might even go to school with my kids.
