SY Working On Soundtrack + New Album With Jimbo
June 22, 2001

Drag City, Jim's record company, featured this in their newsletter:

"Hey, by the way, has anyone noticed that OíRourke is basically like, totally in Sonic Youth at this point? Itís true ó where they go, he goes, and heís currently out on the road with them in sunny Europe at present. There will be some soundtracking to do with them (the new film by Oliver Assayas!) and the recording of another Sonic Youth album. And meanwhile, heís been working on the earth-shattering sequel to his much-beloved Eureka, the much delayed Insignificance."

Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
