whats the story behind DIRTY being on 8 Track?
 
i swear the internet search engine google is the worst search engine EVER! not to mention the other 3 i tired looking it up on.

now i dont know if it's real, but i've seen and at one point had pictures of both the front and back of the tape. it's in a red shell.

was this just a fan made thing only, or was a limited promotional thing? it's not like this is new new, because i swear i've seen that picture over 10 years ago. i used to have them on one of my old failbook accounts, but never saved them again once i deleted it. i mean why should i? i got it on a cd-rom somewhere.

also, the internet i swear is fucking stupid. you would think that after typing in Sonic Youth Dirty 8 Track, it would be within the first 10 hits, but is it? FUCK NO!! :fuckyou:stupid fucking internet:fuckyou:

after that many views
you mean nobody here has even heard of this before?
i'm not bullshitting anyone if that's what you think
it was once on 8trackheaven's webpage back in the late 90's I swear.
and of course, it's not on there now, so i sent them a message about it and havent heard anything back from them yet. i hope that i hear something by next weekend. but i'm still surprised that no ones been able to upload the pictures of them. :(

I recall it, and I did some brief Googling to try to support your memory (before anybody had replied) and sadly came up short. My instinct when I saw the thread title was that it had been a joke cartridge somebody made up themselves, not an actual release. I used to have a stereo receiver that recorded 8-tracks, I presume you could just put whatever you wanted on one. Slap a sticker on it and ta-da! Even Google doesn't remember you.

The last 8 tracks were made in 1988, Dirty was in 1992...say I'm from Iowa, you're gonna have to show me

link doesn't work though, heh.

this review claims the site reviews "custom-made copies of Sonic Youth's Dirty", for what that's worth...
