Jt 04.09.2007 06:00 PM

So c'mon, between us we must have a pretty brilliant SY collection. Show me what you've got - vinyl, cd, flexi or otherwise. What're you most proud of? What do you regret buying?! What cost the most?!!! What's the most interesting?!!!!! What's the RAREST?!??!?!?!????????

I want to see some of the coolest SY wares out there. We probably did this last week or something but y'know.

I don't really have an SY vinyl collection. I only bothered grabbing this:



I'm gonna sell and look for a Neutral copy.

HaydenAsche 04.09.2007 06:02 PM

I have a small SY vinyl collection. About have of the studio albums, some splits, and four of the syrs.

My favorite of them is the split with Erase Errata.

Danny Himself 04.09.2007 06:14 PM

Lets go on a sonic tour of my room, through all my SY stuff. I actually missed a bunch of things, but whatever:
It starts at the door. :]
Poster I got at a gig 2 years ago, the night I met SY.
Not really SY related, but check it out.
The record wall. Just try to blank the femmes record out.
Old guitar player mag with Thurston on the cover. Ebay, bitch, Ebay.
CD Collection. Note I have the original editions as well as deluxe ones.
Others, spares.

EDIT: Whoops, posted too soon. Here's more:
Other records, but I forgot to take a picture of the orange vinyl 100% single, numbered.

Jt 04.09.2007 06:24 PM

Niiice. I really need to get myself some SY merch along with the music. Though I do have a custom-made *PURPLE AND LILAC* version of the Goo t-shirt which I feel is pretty sharp.

N. j. on the DDN effort, too.

Danny Himself 04.09.2007 06:32 PM

I have some t-shirts too, but thats just about it.

Jt 04.09.2007 07:06 PM

C'monnn people, MOOORRRREEEE. There must be some fucking amazing other finds out there.

HaydenAsche 04.09.2007 07:11 PM

CHOUT and Rob Instigator both have nice collections.

Danny Himself 04.09.2007 07:18 PM

They do.

!@#$%! 04.09.2007 07:35 PM

im neither a fetishist nor a collector. you mean fetishist includes all? ok then. no. lack the gene.

Brett Robinson 04.09.2007 07:35 PM

Ive got a box of miniDV masters sitting by my feet. maybe 20 or so SY-related tapes in there.

Those are cooler to me than my records. Although I've got some cool things like master-dik, promo copy of first EP, touch me I'm sick 12", and made in america clear vinyl

CHOUT 04.09.2007 08:47 PM

This is incomplete - got a few things since.


I've gotten great deals on much of it - $25 for Walls Have Ears, $7.99 Kill Yr Idols (before the CIS/KYR reissue), Zensor S/T for $30 with the Sister Interview Disc, Zensor CIS for $18...

The most I ever paid for a sy record is $65 for the (over)kill yr idols 7".

With cd's


greenlight 04.10.2007 01:51 AM

i allready have 3 sy (related) vinyls! hehe.


the one on the right is my favourite. one on the left i bought just because of lp bonus tracks and the one in the middle I've found in the shop (never heard about this project before) so I grabbed it. haven't heard it yet, coz i still don't have turntable player.

Dead-Air 04.10.2007 02:03 AM

I've got an autographed copy of Kill Your Idols, but I don't feel like taking a photo of it. I had it signed on the Dirty tour at an instore in Seattle. Steve signed the sleeve on the inside since he's not actually on the record.

I love the jazzmaster in the background of that pic... think I might pull a similar stunt..

jon boy 04.10.2007 04:14 AM

have most of their stuff but not all of it. i used to really want it all but relaised that it would drive me mad to do so.

whorefrost 04.10.2007 04:34 AM

ditto. also, began to question the validity of spending money on records of CDs I already own, especially when there is so much other unheard stuff I need to explore

Trasher02 04.10.2007 04:49 AM

I just buy the cd's. I don't own any vinyls, main reason is because I don't own a recordplayer. Even though I'd love to have everything on vinyl, right now I'm pretty happy with my cd's...

Christ almighty, CHOUT... pretty comprehensive. Is that Walls Have Ears numbered?

Washing Machine 04.10.2007 07:16 AM

I often wonder do Sonic Youth own recordings of everything they've ever put out. If they did that would be a killer SY collection. Often people don't ever have their own records in the house..

nick2767 04.10.2007 08:30 AM

I stopped buying vinyl years ago but I've got the following interesting stuff:

shaking hell/little jammy thing (7", came with a book I think)
teenage riot (flexi disc with Catalogue magazine)
2 peel sessions (Fall and Speak No Evol) and hallowed be thy name, 7"s
Thurston's Root CD in limited edition hoover bag packaging (!)
Halloween 12 on yellow vinyl
Goo 8 track demos vinyl (it says promo copy) - not sure if this is rare
KYI on Zensor
Touch Me 12" with tour date insert for SY and Mudhoney (and reference to SY's appearance on TV arts show, the South Bank show)
Come smash me/magic wand - 7" that came with Devil's Jukebox set
I've also got Walls but not the first pressing and original pressing of Tiger

No photos though. Can't be bothered, sorry.

nick2767 04.10.2007 08:37 AM

Oh yeah, and a 7" of the carpenters track, superstar, SY recorded for tribute album. Red Kross is on the other side.
Also, a couple of tracks on compilation 7" given out by Sounds and NME many years ago. I think the tracks were a version of silver rocket and a live cut of white kross.
That's mine, over and out.

Unfortunately no, it's probably a later edition...I found it in the basement of a record store in a coop the same day I found my Zensor copy of confusion is sex in said basement...needless to say it made my day.

fluxequalsrad 04.10.2007 10:08 PM

That last poster is so cool.

Uuuugh, Fuck you, Rob. I haaaaaaate you!

Rob Instigator 04.11.2007 03:14 PM

you can focus on non-essentials like records when you are 33, divorced, and cannot have children.

*Sigh* All this is a painful reminder that my SY collection is truly second-rate.

@ screamingskull

The posters! The t-shirts! Where from?

hirsute_biped 04.17.2007 07:16 PM

the following is list of sonic related stuff i used to have, then sold, and now regret doing so:

Silver Session
Whore's Moaning
Lee Ranaldo: Scriptures of the golden eternity
Lee Ranaldo: Dirty Windows
Lee Ranaldo: From here to eternity
Lee Ranaldo/William Hooker/Zeena Parkins: Envisioning
Thurston Moore: Piece for Jetsun Dolma
Thurston Moore/William Hooker/Elliot Sharp: Shamballa
Thurston Moore: Root
VA: Speed Trials
Mirror/dash 7in.
SY/ICPC/EX: in the fishtank
Gila Monster Jamboree (video)
Goo (video)
Screaming fields of sonic love (video)
(SY double 7in. bootleg recorded in sweden, like '83 or something, i forget the name. w/ BMR images on the covers and DDN on the inside)

i have to go back and get some of that again. needed the monies at the time. i think i used some of it to buy some rare little wings CDrs, now long out of print, so it's not all bad.

however, i don't really regret selling:

Thurston Moore: Please Just Leave Me (my Paul Desmond)
Free Kitten: Unboxed
Free Kitten: Sex Boy 7in.
SY/Hole split 7in.
Ciccone Youth: burnin' up 7in.
su noij/shaking hell 3in. CD/book

I have an original pressing of Glenn Branca's Assencion on 99 Records featuring a pre-SY Lee Ranaldo, which i got for $7.00 in the "industrial" section of some tiny shop in LA many years back... (what was i doing looking in there, pray tell?)

and an original pressing of Y Pants: Beat it Down on Neutral Records (the second album on that label, right after SY self titled), from a radio station purge sale, with radio station markings ALL over it.
