...How would you want it to sound?

Don't worry about any real-world complications or any of that shiz. In a perfect world where SY is coming back on top form and they're about to head into the studio..what do you think you'd want them to make?

Personally, I think the time's come to revisit the sonic comedy / pop culture jabs of the past, ala Ciccone Youth and Mariah Carey and The Arthur Doyle Hand Cream. There's something super snide and kool about fusing that style of explosive guitar energy with a very detached and bored look at modern celebrity culture.

No more songs about old punk band frontmen, no more allusions to hippy beat poets, and no more songs about being a transient state of love and/or loss. Throw together wicked new tunings, a shitload of obscure alien-sounding pedals and crazy effects to create fun, lively and most important of all, endlessly blaring noise.

I think you summed it up quite well in the last part.

Need new sounds.

I want a really experimental record....a la NYC.

I want the force of DDN, the noise of CIS, the fullness of sound of DIRTY, and the complete lack of acoustic crap.

I'd like a techno influence, a modern day Ciccone Youth / Masterdik.

it's not going to happen, unfortunately.

but if they did, i wouldn't mind the old weird tunings back. pre Murray Street.

NYC Ghost and Flowers was a last hurray by an original band that once seemed "too cool for school" and were somewhat intimidating sounding.

boy, was that a long time ago. i say, let the past be the past and enjoy.

I was listening to music on my cable providers "classic alternative" channel, and it played the usual stuff, the Cure, joy division, etc., and then comes TUNIC (SONG FOR KAREN) and the shit was such a change of pace, so skronk-filled, so noisy, such a bizarre noise break about 3/4 of the way through. It was AWESOME.

There is only one SY

those weird tunings are the only thing that makes SY a little 'still relevant' these days.

shit, Washing Maching still hits the ultimate 'weird tunings' sweet spot as far as their music is concerned. they still make heads turn and go..."what the fuck is this shit???".

i loathe the day alternate tunings become standard guitar fare. maybe they already have.

it doesn't matter. If they made a new album I'd be happy with whatever it was.

I'd like to see then continue on in the vein of SYR 9, and flesh that sound out.. But I would ultimately like them to write a white album type record that sort of spanned their career, using hardcore and no wave, long moody jams and short nic fits, with the darkness of the '80s trinity, and the slop of the early '90s. Of course, Lee would have a ton of lead time, and I would absolutely love to have a confluence of production influence... From O'Rourke revisited to Steve Albini. Subtle guest spots too. Something for the fuckin' ages.

Alright then, it should sound like Arcade Fire, and I mean it. Even if you hate them, you probably love at least one song so much it makes your teenage heart break. Again, no beef. They've done fine, and they've helped make "rock" and alternative at least a little bit more classy and intelligent than it was.

Locked grooves, and concentric grooves (like the 100% single with genetic on the B-side which rules) and colored vinyl, and giveaways tucked inside the vinyl cover, and embossed cover, and glitter, and make it sound like the goddamn walls are caving in please.
