Shan, of Milwaukee, reminded me that today is Thurston Moore's birthday, the founder of Sonic Youth.

While Thurston Moore’s iconic band Sonic Youth is no longer, his legacy looms large on the Indie rock world, with over a dozen albums over thirty+ years. There aren’t a lot bands who’d dare to take on the complicated sound of SY but Japanese band KOTOKO were up to the task. Thanks to Shan for the suggestion.

“Dirty Boots” – Sonic Youth’s original.

And KOTOKO’S version.
