Ciccone Youth - The Whitey Album mp3 album

Exclusively for Prime members. And while Ciccone Youth retains the band’s caustic experimentation, it’s distinct enough from their regular albums to justify the name change. Named after the surname of Madonna (Louise Ciccone), the band’s only album views the decade through a funhouse mirror and then breaks it into shards.

Ciccone Youth –Whitey Album. Ciccone Youth –Burnin Up (Mike Watt Original Demo).

The Whitey Album is also an off-hand reference to the band's desire to cover The Beatles' self-titled album in it's entirety, something that I would truly love to hear. These ideas can be found as early as March 1986, during the recording sessions of EVOL, where Sonic Youth intended a few tracks to be included on a Madonna tribute 7" that apparently never happened. The basic sound of The Whitey Album can only be summed up in a listing of crap contained within the songs: drum machines, beat boxing, freestyle rapping, noise collages, Madonna covers, rickety percussion, and general artistic hilarity. Needle Gun" opens the album with percussive clanks, static, and tuneless mumbling, and is followed by a minute of silence appropriately listed as "(silence)". G-Force", like many of the songs on the album, features Fly Fly Away's confusing psuedo-rants that are more artistically retarded than intelligent.

Written-By – Ciccone Youth (tracks: A1 to A6, B1 to B3, B5 to B8). Notes. The Neu! track the two cool rock chicks are talking over is "Negativland" Track A7 is the original demo on 4-track cassette.

Sonic Youth’s 5th studio album was released on 18 October 1988. The double album was the band’s last release on an independent label under their own name (they released The Whitey Album in 1989 as Ciccione Youth). The cover art uses paintings by Gerhard Richter, including Kerze ( Candle ). Despite overwhelming critical praise (it was ranked in both Rolling Stone and The Village Voice’s best of year lists), it did not chart in the US (it peaked at in the UK). gregorygalloway. Ciccone Youth - Macbeth (1988). This is one of the best songs Sonic Youth ever made.
