Experimental rockers Sonic Youth plan to launch an official website (www.sonicyouth.com) next year that likely will include live material, guitarist Lee Ranaldo said Wednesday. "We'll definitely have MP3-type stuff up at the site," he said. Last month Sonic Youth released SYR 4 (Goodbye 20th Century), a two-CD set of pieces written by modern avant-garde composers.
