Sonic Youth

~ Group

Annotation

Sonic Youth were a four-piece band from New York. Emerging from the no-wave movement, their experimental noise distinguished them from other underground bands of the 1980s. Their signing to DGC in 1990 was unusual in the creative freedom given in the contract, and proved that it was possible to remain true to an independent ethic while on a major label.
