Re-mastered and restored for the first time for vinyl in over twenty years! Confusion Is Sex, the debut album from Sonic Youth, was originally released in 1983 on Glenn Branca's label Neutral Records. In 1995, it was reissued on CD from DGC Records, with the extra tracks from the Kill Your Idols EP. Confusion Is Sex remains one of the most important and influential records to emerge from the American No Wave, post-punk scene which thrived through the late 1970s and early 1980s in the lower east side of New York, with bands like The Contortions, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Mars and DNA. Lee Renaldo and Thurston Moore utilized various experimental techniques while playing and recording this album. Notably and most interestingly perhaps are the "third bridge" techniques which evolved from their time working with Branca and his prepared guitars - Thurston and Lee built a third bridge by sticking screwdrivers between the strings and fretboards
