Ciccone Youth - whitey album 12 inch
The Whitey Album is a 1988 album by Ciccone Youth, a pseudonymous side project of Sonic Youth members Steve Shelley, Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo, and Thurston Moore, featuring Minutemen/Firehose member Mike Watt. The album is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Madonna and 80s pop in general. Beatbox and samplers/sequencers are the foundation of the recording but Sonic Youth references still manage to permeate throughout. The album features a new version of an early Sonic Youth number, "Making the Nature Scene."
