Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo Discusses Fender's Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore Jazzmasters

Late last month, Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo released Between The Times and The Tides, his first purely song-based, non-experimental solo outing, on Matador Records. Besides its healthy dose of melodic, guitar-based rock, the disc features a bevy of faces from Sonic Youth's past and present -- assuming there is a present for the band; Steve Shelley plays drums, one-time SY drummer Bob Bert plays congas and frequent SY collaborator Jim O'Rourke contributes some bass.
