Ciccone Youth - The Whitey Album


  • £17.99

Originally released in 1989, Sonic Youth's seventh album originated with a long-running band joke involving their claim to one day cover the Beatles' White Album in its entirety. Somehow this project morphed into a twisted beatbox/sampler experiment, with silence, noise, lo-fi covers of top ten hits, and classic grungy Sonic Youth songs like 'Making the Nature Scene'.

“...a dizzying collage of violently overhauled chart hits, sound sculpture mischief, experimental riff shrapnel and art-punk gags stitched together with deviant whimsy.” David Fricke, Rolling Stone
