holy shit, that cover is truly appalling!

L3BURST 04.11.2008 08:52 AM

so "evertything" is less than in the previous thread :) hopefully it will complete !

Nic Fit, the search engine just gives the full threads, not easy...

Moshe, it seems we need you to know if there'll be or not an unreleased track !!

Because it seems nobody will buy it for the cover !!

nicfit 04.11.2008 08:52 AM

ha ha we should start a "caption this" thread on that image.
p.s. the search engine can give also single posts links ;)

whorefrost 04.11.2008 08:53 AM

totally

L3BURST 04.11.2008 08:59 AM

sorry for my english, what means 'caption this' ??

but I fully agree, this cover is the funiest of all SY, ahah:

- who is the guy ?! try to find him at yr local Starbuck !
- capuccino or cafe con late ?

thanks NicFit, I didn't see the advanced search first, indeed it's perfect

It must be a joke. If it really is a joke hats off to da yoof and their sense of humour, but if it isn't (I doubt it) my jaws will drop any minute.

In Exclusivity: SYR 9's cover entitled "Experimental Stairways to Starbucks"



 

SYRFox 04.11.2008 09:14 AM

Haha that would actually be great :D

mil_pl 04.11.2008 09:21 AM

i think cover for hits is really good.

L3BURST 04.11.2008 10:49 AM

this could have been a nice cover with Kim instead !

Starbucks Enters MP3 Market?


 




This was only a matter of time. According to Business Digest, Starbucks' chairman Howard Schultz says the chain is considering selling MP3s.
"Within 12 months, probably, you're going to be able to walk into a Starbucks and digitally be able to fill up your MP3 player with music," said Schultz. "Over the next six to18 months you will see us look at it, perhaps test it." http://www.cbc.ca/thehour/blog/2007/01/

There will be some "surprises" in this album including a new song. All i can say right now is that you can look for hints on Chris Lawrence's site and that the new song is quite revolutionary... :p
Sorry I cant share more info but I guess you will know it all pretty soon.

Oh and I dig the cover for the CD. SY are being pretty ironic to themselves, to the Starbucks issue and to corporate America with this image.

Thanks moshe, I am now anxious for this album.

L3BURST 04.11.2008 03:14 PM

thanks for the clue, Moshe, you wrote "surpriseS" ! cool !

Chris L :
HITS ARE FOR SQUARES -- the curious Sonic Youth/Starbucks release, w/ an exclusive new track ("Wolves Ruin Tool"... or something like that, maybe I'm a little scrambled) & songs chosen by celebrity folk and such. Title taken from the lyrics of exclusive Rather Ripped outtake "Eyeliner"!

yeah. that's totally what they were thinking when they came up with that cover themselves, I'll wager.

Reminds me of:

 

jennthebenn 04.17.2008 03:26 PM

No one picked "Starpower."

Sigh.

nicfit 04.17.2008 03:27 PM

it would be interesting to know who chose what.
that's a pretty cool list, btw, except for superstar. they got to n1 with juno's soundtrack, what's the point in putting it on this too?
