Your worst SY purchase
 
This is going to open up a right old can of worms, isn't it?

Mine is the Thurston Moore / Marco Fusinato collaboration "TM/MF", which was the "soundtrack" to an art installation where Thurston improvised ten one-minute tracks (shoving the guitar against an amp, laying it on the floor, sliding a bottle along the strings), while Fusinato used the "music" as inspiration for ten paintings, each created usng a different medium, within the length of time that the track played.

Each of the ten paintings, so far as I can remember, consisted of a large red square. Each of Thurston's improvisations consisted of a fucking racket. I think you probably had to be there.

RR?

Yeah, I don't know about getting into SY side projects.

Unless there are some absolutely necessary ones that I should pick up?

SYRFox 05.13.2007 04:30 AM

Well I'd say TV Shit, even though I like it (I wouldn't say it's the worst, but the "least good"), because I paid 15€ for it (around 18$ I think)

atsonicpark 05.13.2007 08:22 AM

experimental jet set for $2.

fuck that cd!

Can we stop with the EJSTNS-bashing, please?

Most of the releases I've bought up to now have been great, though I guess 'The Destroyed Room' was kinda boring. I listened to it in the bath a few times and that was about it.

Yeah, this is the one. total rubbish. I'm glad I didn't pay much for it.

Danny Himself 05.13.2007 09:22 AM

You're a very silly person, then. RR is a good album.

drrrtyboots 05.13.2007 09:46 AM

val-holla-ing 05.13.2007 10:38 AM

Yes, it's one of the better ones.
If that one rubs you the wrong way, maybe no side-profjects are for you.

screamingskull 05.13.2007 11:02 AM

i love the SYR's and the free kitten albums and psychic hearts, just not "in the fishtank"

Everyneurotic 05.13.2007 11:12 AM

That would be two tickets to the SY show at the McPool in Brooklyn last Summer. Ended up being on the other side of the United States in Mid-AUGUST and when it became obvious that I wouldn't make the show I mailed my friend back east the tickets which ended up not making it to his mailbox.

Total waste.

I think "what a waste" is more appropriate. perhaps, "total trash"?
