Sonic Youth — Goo On Sonic Youth’s 1990 album Goo, Raymond Pettibon went with the family murder motif. Disturbing and ambiguous textual motifs were his thing. The work is based on a photograph of witnesses of a real serial killer case. And yet, pleasing isn’t it? Or, you’re sick! From Gerhard Richter to Richard Kern to Mike Kelley to Richard Prince, arty album covers are part of Sonic Youth’s definitive… let’s be honest here… brand. They’re great, though.
