Does anyone know? Of course it really doesn´t matter much, but from that Lollabalooza-article I just began to wonder. I would bet Dirty, but Ann Ashtray said in some thread SY was in most success during that Lolla-tour. Still hard to believe Washing Machine or ATL would be the most selling SY-records. If somebody had any numbers of the SY album sellings, it would have been fun to see them.

What´s suprising CIS has sold more than BMR. Also, I think the reason why first album has sold only 4100 is the pressings had been quite low. And maybe there has some more sold of all those early albums, because the re-releases. There are no RR or Eternal numbers, but I don´t believe they´ve sold much more than Nurse.

I think these numbers are quite high if you think album sellings in Finland. If Sy had sold here as much, they would have been superstars here.

everyone should be thought of as living either in their pre-EVOL or post-EVOL lives.

Well, of course it was great day when I heard EVOL first time. But to me it´s pre-SY and Post Sy-live (Goo was my first album and it hit loud!) Also I think it was 2008 or 2009 when SY became my favourite band of number one!
