A beautiful noise from Sonic Youth, Teen Age Riot is the opening track on the album, Daydream Nation released on Enigma Records in 1988. (Spot the icons in the video). By the time grunge was exploding, Sonic Youth were on their seventh album (if you include Ciccone Youth also released in 1988 also on Enigma). Their influence runs […]
