Vinyl reissue of quintessential 1988 Top-40 tribute album. Features the classic Burnin Up demo featuring Mike Watt and Greg Ginn.
Latest in Sonic Youth's vinyl reissue series which also features the group's 1982 debut, Thurston Moore's Psychic Heartsand deluxe (to come) & box set editions of Dirty and Goo.
A deluxe vinyl re-release of Ciccone Youth's The Whitey Album, the full-length recorded by Sonic Youth's Top-40 obsessed alter-ego is now available on the band's own Goofin imprint. In 1988, after hinting that a tribute to the Beatles' White Album was in the works, the band about-faced and delivered this brain-sick celebration of pop-culture and The Material Girl in particular.
The album has been spectacularly remastered and manufactured to provide hi-fi reproductions of such favorites as Needle-Gun, MacBeth,Ó and Mike Watt's original demo recording of Burnin Up. Tracklisting: Side A:
