Ciccone Youth - The Whitey Album (Remastered 2006) (320Kbps) [1988]

Album Review

The Whitey Album' is not Sonic Youth's long-rumored cover of the Beatles' entire White Album. Better than that, these New York guitar reconstructionists have come up with their own "Revolution Number 9" for '89, a dizzying collage of violently overhauled chart hits, sound-sculpture mischief, experimental riff shrapnel and art-punk gags stitched together with deviant whimsy.

Cut by Sonic Youth's Madonna-fixated alter ego, Ciccone Youth, The Whitey Album is just as jarring in its disunity and fuzzy in its focus as John Lennon's original splice 'n' dub smorgasbord. It is also compelling in its eccentricity and inspired in its trashing of the Top Forty (Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love," Madonna's "Into the Groove"). The Whitey Album – the follow-up to a 1986 Ciccone Youth EP that also featured Firehose bassist Mike Watt – is willful, fragmented nonsense that actually makes a whole lot of sense.... more@rollingstone
