Vintage Sonic Youth Poster from 1990 | Goo Album Promo
Here we have a vintage Sonic Youth promo poster for the 1990 album "Goo." If you've never heard "Goo," make it happen. Wicked, wicked album. I mean, you have a guest appearance from Chuck D of Public Enemy. Nuff said. As for the poster, it's exploding with images and color. Lot's a red, y'all.
The alternative rock poster comes out of a Twin Cities collection of rare posters from the 80s and 90s.
Here's info about "Goo" courtesy of Wikipedia:
Goo is the sixth studio album by American alternative rock band Sonic Youth, released on June 26, 1990 by DGC Records. For this album, the band sought to expand upon its trademark alternating guitar arrangements and the layered sound of their previous album Daydream Nation (1988). The band's songwriting on Goo is more topical than past works, exploring themes of female empowerment and pop culture. Coming off the success of Daydream Nation, Nick Sansano returned to engineer Goo, but veteran producer Ron Saint Germain was chosen by Sonic Youth to finish mixing the album following Sansano's dismissal.
Goo was a critical and commercial success upon its release, peaking at number 96 on the US Billboard 200, their highest chart position to date. Although it lacked significant radio airplay, its lead single "Kool Thing", a collaborative effort with Public Enemy's Chuck D, reached number seven on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. Since then, Goo has been viewed as one of alternative rock's most important albums, and is considered musically and artistically significant.
