In a Maximumrocknroll GQ interview this past fall Steve Albini called Sonic Youth an embarrassment, saying he considers them friends, but also considers their jump from an indie to DGC in 1990 as a move that fucked things up for other bands then and now. Thurston Moore’s responded in an interview with Spanish newspaper El País: “Steve has opinions based on a myopic point of view which of course does not extend to the manufacturers of his pants.” Moore also mentions Beck, the Black Crowes, and Metallica in the Q&A, so if you know Spanish, feel free to translate and post below.
