Director Richard Linklater commissioned Sonic Youth to create original music for his fifth movie, the cult flick 'subUrbia,' released in February 1997.
Thurston Moore will be in a band featuring former and current members of Can at a special concert next year.
Sleater-Kinney vet and Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein has debuted the trailer for The Realest Real, her upcoming short film featuring Kim Gordon.
A new short film chronicles Beck's performance at Doug Aitken's Station to Station project in London last year with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore.
An album of all-instrumental demos the experimental alternative outfit recorded for the 1987 film 'Made in U.S.A.' will be released in June.
The batch of reissues includes 'Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star,' 'A Thousand Leaves,' 'NYC Ghosts & Flowers,' 'Murray Street,' 'Sonic Nurse' and 'Rather Ripped.'
The supergroup featuring Jay Deegan, Irwin Menken and Big Star's Jody Stephens enlisted Wilco's Nels Cline and Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo for their upcoming LP.
After the relatively pop-friendly 'Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star,' Sonic Youth returned in 1995 with their most innovative album in years.
With such a long and storied career, there's bound to be some interesting bits of information buried somewhere in Sonic Youth's history.
