Sonic Youth - Kool Thing

MP3Week two of the long anticipated return of the weekly mp3 and I already missed the day. Let's pretend I posted this on Wednesday, shall we?

You have seven days to grab this week's MP3. Please right-click your mouse and select "Save Link As..." or "Save target as..." so you can download it before playing.

I can't believe "Kool Thing" is 22 years old. In 1990, I was a big Public Enemy fan, so the appearance of Chuck D on this track made a very good thing even better.

Sonic Youth have several great singles tucked away in their extensive catalogue, but "Kool Thing" remains my favourite.

RIP Bob Welch - a suicide.

That was music with him & playing with Fleetwood Mac.

It is a great song to listen to. Thanks for sharing it. I didn't know about the artist Kool Thing so maybe this is my cue to look for his music at the pirate's ocean. Har! Har!

Sonic Youth is great... big influence on Nirvana. They even made a cool cover of The Carpenters.
