Sonic Youth - Gila Monster Jamboree, Mojave Desert, California, USA - 05.01.1985 (HQ MPEG)

Continuing to post some old school SY, this time a good quality rip of their first VHS, still unavaiable on DVD. If I'm not mistaken, I got this one on a rusian tracker, anywway Thanks to the person who ripped and shared it.

  1. Thank you so much for a good quality version of this. Have so many n-th generation dubs, rips, and files.
    As a life long, long-time fan who grew up on this music, "Bad Moon Rising" is the definitive Sonic-Youth album for me. I used to love "Evol" the most. But as I've gotten older, I gravitate to "Bad Moon" more and more. The live audio I have from that time is amazing. Just wish I was born ten years earlier. Thanks again.

  2. Thank you for this

  3. The last part is stuck at 99 per cent
