Slightly different from the usual name your favourite SY tracks type question, If you were asked to compile a single CD (70-80min) compilation that spanned the band's career so far, which tracks would you put on it? Individual tracks can come from any source, including singles, EPs, albums, previously released live material, as well as anything done under the name Ciccone Youth. No solo stuff though. The most important thing is that it all has to fit on a single CD.

Brother James
I Love Her All of the Time
Ghost Bitch
Death Valley '69
Shadow of a Doubt
Expressway to Yr. Skull
Cotton Crown
Silver Rocket
Titanium Expose
Drunken Butterfly

That would probably fill one cd. I would have stuff after that, but that would have to go on disc two.

I originally typed out a list of my favourite songs in chronological order, with one or two tracks from most albums, but I decided to change it, keeping it to around twelve tracks, and structuring it the way a typical SY album could be said to be structured ie. catchy/rocking opener, epic closer, one or two Lee tracks and an equal mix between Thurston and Kim.

1. Kill Yr Idols
2. Shadow of a Doubt
3. I'm Insane
4. 'Cross the Breeze
5. Stereo Sanctity
6. Bull in the Heather
7. Eric's Trip
8. Washing Machine
9. Malibu Gas Station
10. Death Valley '69
11. Mote
12. Rain on Tin

1. Burning Spear - 3:28
2. World Looks Red - 2:43
3. Brother James - 3:17
4. Brave Men Run - 3:37
5. Tom Violence - 3:05
6. Stereo Sanctity - 3:50
7. Cross the Breeze - 7:00
8. Dirty Boots - 5:28
9. 100% - 2:28
10. Bull in the Heather - 3:04
11. Washing Machine - 9:33

-Roughly 46 minutes in so far!-

12. Hoarfrost - 5:01
13. Free City Rhymes - 7:32
14. Rain on Tin - 7:56
15. Unmade Bed - 3:56
16. Rats - 4:24
17. Malibu Gas Station - 5:39

If I'm doing the math in my head correctly, that should be just a little under 80 minutes and is one track from each album.

Brother James was originally on the Kill Yr Idols EP, which was only added onto CIS when it came out on CD.
