I know that this is not big news, but "Superstar" is on there saying it's from Hits Are For Squares and there is cover art.

ugly cover

perhaps it was allreday dicussed before in another thread, but what's the meaning of this CD ??

promoting SY to a larger audience ? or promoting Starbucks amongst fans ?!

There are no Starbucks here ! I didn't know it before Hits for Squares was announced !
(sorry, I traveled a lot but never in the US and never stayed long in big cities...)
but it just looks like horrible coffee in poluting disposable cups
just found a petition for opening a Starbuck here !! http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/starbucksbrussels/

...Back to the CD : It's a best of, but not a single collection, rather a track selection made by musicians, isn't it ?
That's at least a little bit more interesting...And will there be an unreleased bonus, at least ?

...include choice Sonic Youth cuts selected by the likes of Eddie Vedder, Dave Eggers, David Cross, and Chloe Sevigny...
http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/page/n...h-starbucks-cd

Thurston : "I never thought of it as being more radical than recording for Universal Music"..."But I kind of like the absurdity of it. Sonic Youth has always, in a way, made itself available to the super mainstream"......yeah, why not !
...Sonic Youth has yet to record its own contribution to the compilation, but was recently in the studio recording an unidentified Bob Dylan cover that may be used in Todd Haynes' upcoming film "I'm Not There."....
http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/..._id=1003605708

but the article is frome june 2007...will there be a real new song ??? anyone has more info ? I guess there must have been a thread about it here in the time, would a search engine in the gossip not be usefull ?

there is a search engine here, and it works wonders when used properly.

I suggest you use the "advanced" feature and fiddle a bit with the options if you can't immediately find what you search for.

This is the end. That cover is truly appaling even if you look at it in the middle of a desert while you're hallucinating.

myspace is running slow oday. shit.
I want to check this thing

remember that sonic youth do not have arecord contract with anyone, and to keep putting out their own albums they have to have some sort of influx of capital to maintain production. I think this is good idea, but I wish they were selling it in Houston.

I hope they won't sign too soon any long term contract with a major...

I love the Geffen albums & the SYR albums but I would like them to mix again their "mainstream" side with their "experimental" side on the same songs and/or records as they did more in the past...

Are Starbucks-like options the only way to find money ?
It's funny as a "one shot" but their must be other ways to gather the needed money !
Show tickets may surely be more expensive and all records released on SYR

Just an idea: who would be ready to pay more for concert tickets if the ticket would include a key to download a soundboard quality recording from the show from sy.store the day after ?

Other ideas ?

plastic sun was on the jane magazine compilation in umm september 2001, and later appeared (same recording, different mix, one vocal change) on murray street in june 2002.

mariah carey appeared on the split 7" in april 2003, and later appeared (same recording, different mix) on sonic nurse in june 2004.

will the "exclusive" starbucks tune appear on the next full-length album and thus cease to be exclusive? or will it remain a legitimately unique track on this starbucks compilation?
