Get The Look: Goo


Sonic Youth's sixth album, Goo, has one of the most iconic covers of music history.
This early 90's wonder can be found in most record stores and, if you are a music lover,
I bet you have had it in your hands thinking if you should buy it in that moment or not.

But in those moments when you were pondering if you should finally add it to your brand-new record collection or leave it for another time you come across it, you probably didn't realise you were looking
at an artwork inspired by a photograph of the witnesses of a serial murder case.


Sonic Youth have always liked to rely their covers to artists: Richard Prince, Gerhard Richter,
Richard Kern, Mike Kelley... This time it was Raymond Pettibon's work, known for his
comic-like drawings with disturbing, ironic or ambiguous text. He based this work on a
paparazzi portrait of Maureen Hindley and David Smith, witnesses in the trial of Moors Murders.

If you feel like today it is all whirlwind, heat and flash and you want to dress appropiately for it,
and a dark bob wig to become a real kool thing.
