Sonic Youth - Bad Moon Rising


  • £24.99

Bad Moon Rising is Sonic Youth's second studio album, originally released in 1985, now reissued on the band's own Goofin Records. 

A pitch-black, punishing take on Americana, titled after, of all things, a Creedence Clearwater Revival song. Bad Moon Rising is their most explicitly sexual album, and among their darkest, exploring the collision of America's obsession with death and the hopeful ecstasies of the hippy generation. 

The climatic closer, 'Death Valley 69,' features a vocal contribution from no wave legend Lydia Lunch, and perfectly encapsulates the bubblegum-dissonance of the whole album.
