Sonic Youth's Last Meal - 2007
One of our fave SY albums is 1990's Goo, and so we decided to feed the no-longer- youthful band some actual goo. Thus we find ourselves sending them to Hadramout, a café named after a narrow wadi (canyon) near the Empty Quarter Desert in Yemen. There they'll dine on salta, a big cast-iron pot of bubbling goo containing lamb, disintegrating potatoes and carrots, and a top layer of emulsified fenugreek foam called hilbeh. We can already see their happy faces as they dip the humongous homemade flatbreads into the goo.
