As previously reported, Sonic Youth will release a rare recording of their 1985 show at Chicago’s Smart Bar on November 14th via the band’s own label Goofin Records. As a first listen, Slicing Up Eyeballs points us to the live album version of “Intro/Brave Men Run (In My Family)”, which you can stream below.
The performance was recorded on four-track cassette and includes material from 1985’s Bad Moon Rising, early versions of Secret Girl and Expressway to Yr Skull, and a rare never before released live rendition of Kat N Hat.
The recording was mixed and mastered from the original tape source, and will be available in digital, CD, and double LP vinyl formats. Gerard Cosloy (Homestead and Matador Records) and Sonic Youth engineer Aaron Mullan penned new liner notes for the release.
