Sixth studio album from New York's Sonic Youth. Goo was originally recorded in the spring of 1990 and was the band's major label debut. Following the success of Daydream Nation the band signed with Geffen Records in 1990 and went on to release albums on the newly formed DGC sub-label. It's hard to say if signing with Geffen led the band to change their sound, but many will say Goo is their most accessible album. You'll probably recognize tracks like "Dirty Boots," "Kool Thing," "Mote" and "My Friend Goo." Also of note is the Raymond Pettibon cover art. The illustration is based on a paparazzi photo of Maureen Hindley and her first husband David Smith, witnesses in the case of the Moors murders serial killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, driving to the trial in 1966. Eleven tracks in all. Released by DGC on black vinyl with a download code.
