Ciccone Youth - Whitey Album

Ciccone Youth - Whitey Album


“...a dizzying collage of violently overhauled chart hits, sound sculpture mischief, experimental riff shrapnel and art-punk gags stitched together with deviant whimsy.”
 
 Available again on vinyl!! 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,” and Mike Watt’s original demo recording of “Burnin’ Up.”
