Sonic Youth and Porn

Did you know that Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore has scored the soundtracks for some porn films by NYC photographer (and Vice columnist) Richard Kern?

In 2008, Moore collaborated with long time filmmmaker/photographer Richard Kern and scored his 2008 adult film “Extra Action (And Extra Hardcore)”.

Sonic Youth has lent its music to some of Kern’s previous films and Kern himself directed the band’s videos for “Death Valley 69” and “Scooter and Jinx”

In 2007 Moore did the soundtrack to a DVD that accompanies Kern’s photo book Action

And Sonic Youth used a still from Kern’s film Submit to Me Now (featuring artist Lydia Lunch) for the cover of their 1986 album EVOL.

Maybe Kim Gordon can do the soundtrack to some PoolBoy videos?
