SYR 8 Will Hurt Your Ears!


The CD-only release of SYR 8 features a live recording that took place
in the 2005 Roskilde Festival in Denmark and was billed as 'The Other Side of Sonic Youth'.
For this special event the Japanese laptop noise monger Masami Akita a.k.a. Merzbow
and Swedish free jazz saxophonist/reeds player Mats Gustafsson joined the five-piece Sonic Youth. The one hour of improvised music was divided into 5-minute intervals and participants joined and exited during each interval.
The CD will be out on August 4th and in the meantime you can pre order a copy
of SYR 7 in the Sonic Youth store.

"The CD-only release"

this made me laugh a lot! :D
thanks Moshe! (not just for the laughs...)

OMFG that's going to be noisy. I support people that are going to cry about the CD only release, even if they weren't supporting people that cried about SYR 7 being vinyl only at the time :D

Tokolosh 04.10.2008 12:20 PM

Can't wait.

Bal 04.10.2008 01:24 PM

hmm sounds good altho i dont like mats on recordings much.
his saxophone is always too much upfront and dont let the others come tru.

SYRFox 04.10.2008 02:16 PM

Can we assume the language will be Danish?

krastian 04.10.2008 03:09 PM

It'd be nice if they actually wrote some new music for these.

Great news, thanks Moshe !

I looked for this show not so long ago without any result...It must not be widely available, or do some of you allready have it ?
(at the contrary of SYR7 Side a that we all have already...)

to get an idea of what it was:
part1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbvdF68J3HQ (38 sec)
part2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7g99j438sUo (50 sec)

i don't.

it's not listed on db.etree.org either. i wonder if there's any existing audience recording of it. if yes, it wasn't shared publicly (yet). i'd like to know as well, if this source does exist or no. weird (for '05) that nobody would taped it, but happens.

PAULYBEE2656 04.11.2008 09:27 AM

cd only... gah! and ive just destroyed my cd player and bought a new record player and one for the car to play syr7 on, gah!!!!!

satirejohn 04.12.2008 02:26 PM

Cool as fuck!

I attended that concert, and it was cool as hell! It really seemed like the band had fun and were very into it. Really gret gig, can't wait to hear the recording!

Dead-Air 04.12.2008 10:58 PM

I didn't know they actually played with Merzbow in the mix. That has to be at least very interesting, and potentially very good.
