"You come running in on platform shoes, With Marshall stacks, To at least just give us a clue" -Thurston Moore

I went away to see an old friend of mine
His sister came over she was out of her mind
She said Jesus had a twin who knew nothing about sin
She was laughing like crazy at the trouble I'm in
Her light eyes were dancing she is insane
Her brother says she's just a bitch with a golden chain
She keeps coming closer saying "I can feel it in my bones
Schizophrenia is taking me home"

Wow. these photos are great. Thurston always seems to have a nice mop. he makes the baggy clothes look super cool too.

I listen to this when I skate. sick live clip

I feel like these would belong in a book or album booklet.

2003 I was only 11 going on 12. I vividly remember those years. I had just recently picked up a board at that time. I've been skating a lot lately, been getting kickflips down and ollieing up curbs and shit no sweat. Feelsgoodman. skating spots and shit.

The Schizophrenia lyrics, that is one of my favorite Sonic Youth songs if not my favorite


That shred face is too funny

I love that song. Pictures are so intense and just fucking rocking out.

haha Nyjahs mom is such a whore.

That symptoms show video is pretty awesome. I liked the whole vibe. It's a good perspective.

Lol, "Nyjahs mom is such a whore."
I don't know why that made me laugh so hard, but I had a shitty day and it is instantly better now

wow, Nyjahs mom haha.

Thurston pretty much did the exactly same thing, and wore the exactly same thing at the concert I went to. I loved it. He stage dived, and I touched his butt. One of my most memorable moments. Ed must have had a press-pass to get that close eh?
I saw a documentary about sonic youth made by high school students for a gig they did in Reno a few years ago. It was really interesting, they were very layd back and seemes very real with the students. I recommend it if you guys are big fans.

Very nice.

Well, if they´re already divorced then I´ll definitely slap her ass next week.

@JGonz

I just checked the Live Clip you linked and realized I was there!
They played lots of shows in Germany (specialy E Werk, Cologne)
that were recorded by this tele station and I think I`ve been to all of them since 92. In the recording from 2002 you can even see me for a second.

They´re easy to find on the tube. Good memories.

That is nuts you've seen them so many times S.
I have never had the pleasure, but I want to try to see Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelly with Alan Licht if they come anywhere near me

Took a few photos last month in Krakow, Poland:

http://headonthebar.blogspot.de/2013/06/krakow.html

I haven´t been to Poland before and really liked it. Although one of the worlds most horrifying places is only a few miles away, Krakow itself is really pretty. Didn´t feel like eastern europe, more a mixture of some southern italian village combined with the hipsters bars of Berlin.

I stayed for 4 days since I was invited for a weding and heard all those rumours about polish weddings and all of them were true. Though it was pretty posh, everyone got a bottle of vodka for themselfs wich is kinda crazy for a guy who won´t even drink a bottle of vodka in a year. Tons of food, an old school polka band, dancing and all in all good people.

If I´d get a chance to go there back again I will and totally recommend it.

My friend synced a video up to a song I made for a tape I have coming out probably some time near the end of this year.

It is not complex or anything (only three chords) and is basically an experiment, since I don't normally make straightforward "song type" stuff and had never used drums in a song before this

Nyjah's mom's whore mouth made me laugh too. Whore is also a sexually oppressive term unless one chooses to be sexually oppressive in general. But yeah, that shit made me LOL also. I would probably fuck his mom. in Nyjah's old bedroom too when he's on tour or something.

holy shit, small world. S was in the crowd. S! your photo of the two skinny blond ladies is great.

Tenant, I actually really liked that song. wow. I use a drum machine on my iPad and garageband on my iphone and plug my micro korg in and do synth shit while looping guitar and stuff too. Anyway, imma need your tape when it releases. shoot some mp3's my way.

Thanks jgonz!
I want a microkorg so bad. i have a 61 key roland synth from the 80's and I wish i had something more compact. I've had my eyes on a microkorg for quite a while.

I could send a .zip file your way if you want, I have been finished with it for a couple months, the physical tapes will be out in so long because the guy putting them out is releasing two other people's stuff and we are waiting on one of them to finish.
Email returntobarbarism@gmail.com if you want the files

Do you have any music on soundcloud or anything?


P.S.
Those pictures rule S, they make me want to get out and take pictures more often. Inspiring stuff, I am glad people are still doing street photography. It feels so pure to me
