Sonic Youth Releasing More Material On Geffen

Relating to previous briefs, New York's Sonic Youth has added three albums to the two remaining on its contract with DGC/Geffen.

According to the band's Thurston Moore, the next DGC title, due in late March, will be a song-oriented affair, a departure from the two primarily instrumental budget-priced EPs the band has released on its SYR imprint.

Sonic Youth will spotlight its instrumental material at a Nov. 21 concert at Avery Fisher Hall in New York's Lincoln Center (a historic gig, since only a handful of rock acts have played the classical venue). In January, SYR, which is distributed by San Francisco's Revolver, will release the band's SYR3.
