SONIC YOUTH 'Spinhead Sessions
The Spinhead Sessions are the rehearsal recordings for Sonic Youth's score to the Ken Friedman film Made In USA. Recorded at Spinhead Studio in North Hollywood, which was then hosting recordings of SST Records artists like Black Flag and Painted Willie. These jams were the rough gestural sketches that were built upon for a later soundtrack recording that was quite different. Thurston described the construction of "spindly, twisting rhythms and quiet rushes of noise and melody"
