In the early 1980s Sonic Youth regenerated the spirit of punk by creating their own spectaular brand of noise rock. Without SY much of the independent rock community that followed would never have come into being, and it was as a direct result of their influence that Nirvana released Nevermind on a major label. Twenty years on and SY are still admired for never having sold out. They charted an abrasive course through record labels and music trends alike while pursuing a wide range of individual projects outside of just music. Drawing on interviews with the group and the people closest to them, author Stevie Chick gives a fascinating insight into this most fearless and adventurous of bands, charting their revolutionary path and exploring the aftershocks they left on both pop culture and the counter-culture.

"You guys are so awesome about being attentive to your customers. I have a LOT of band kids that float in and out of this house...I'm going to spread the word about your company to them. They're always needing something to upgrade, etc. I'm very, very pleased with your service and will definitely "be back"."

"My husband and I are really impressed with your customer service. It's a rarity to experience the type of attention that you have paid to this matter. The school where our two kids attend, has violin as a part of their third grade curriculum. After the customer service you have shown we both would feel comfortable endorsing your company to other parents at the school who will be needing violins and other instruments for their children."
