Lee Ranaldo

A founding guitarist and songwriter of Sonic Youth, Ranaldo is coming to St. Louis on Friday, Sept. 17 to play with Text of Light, an improv group that plays along to the short films of experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage.

For the purposes of an advance piece for the P-D, Ranaldo is calling me tomorrow morning. This is making me very nervous. I need to remain calm. I can’t even say that I cue-up Sonic Youth on a regular basis, but still… it’s Lee Ranaldo! Of Sonic Youth! Yah!

(Update: what a pleasure to speak to Lee Ranaldo. His whole interview is presented over at 52nd City. Please read, at your convenience.)
