Sonic Youth for Plan B Magazine

Sonic Youth, originally uploaded by lauren minco.

Hey look, a band you've actually HEARD of! Is Sonic Youth still kickin' it? Good for them. I remember them back in the 90's when I was still in elementary school playing four square and wearing stirrup pants.
This will be a spread for Plan B, so of course I'm very excited to see it published. The process was a little weird, because the Art Director and I had no mp3's or article to go off of. In fact, the only phrase I got was "heavy ass weirdo hooks". Fortunately, I was able to get a track list forwarded in order to give me some inspiration. The songs I borrowed from were "Calming the Snake" and "Leaky Lifeboat (For Gregory Corso)".
