Ciccone Youth - The Whitey Album

This Sonic Youth side project was released between their two best albums - Sister and Daydream Nation. It sees them in experimental mode, complete with two Madonna covers and a karaoke booth recording of Kim Gordon singing Addicted To Love. Very ahead of its time, featuring beatbox, samplers, nods to rap music, krautrock and 'silence' (a great one for the pub jukebox).

I hadn't listened to this for years until very recently, when I was framing up some album sleeves for the living room and stuck it on (this album's one of the chosen ones).

Aye, a great wee oddity well worth checking out...
