Wat is het?

Acht nummers feedback. Jason Knuth was een Sonic Youth-fan die zelfmoord heeft gepleegd en de opbrengst van deze cd gaat naar de San Fransico Suicide Prevention Hotline. Maar ik denk niet dat het heel veel geld heeft opgeleverd

Ik heb er wat van gehoord en het klinkt goed. Beter dan Metal Machine Music

Ik heb begrepen dat deze opnieuwe gereleased wordt 4 december. Niets extra's erbij verder. waarschijnlijk, omdat de eerste release gelimiteerd was

Thurston's liner notes explain it all:

we didn't really know jason knuth -- its possible we had met him, or had been in the same room as him, but we didn't recal... we heard about his passing on the internet -- a flurry of grievous and surprised reaction -- people were asking us if we were aware of how much he identified and championed our music -- as music director for kusf he seemingly used sy as a standard for playlisting -- indeed at his memorial his friends played 'the diamond sea' in acknowledgment of his enthusiasm towards us -- he was affectionately referred to as 'sonic knuth' in nyc, so far from the sf community, we were touched and more than intrigued. we learned jason was a vibrant, well loved guy on the music scene w/ a completely genuine exhuberance towards art & music. his demeanor obviously shroued a complex inner life which led to suicide. what jason's feelings were towards his own human existence we may never know but we do know he will be missed by many as a companion. sonic youth wanted to make some gesture towards him as well as focus on suicide prevention. proceeds from this cd will help fund the san francisco suicide prevention hotline (415-781-0550). it is manufactured and distributed by revolver, a company with close and personal associations with jason.

a note on the music: silver sessions were taken from an evening when sy had to do vocal overdubs for 'a thousand leaves' -- the band upstairs was hammering out some funky metal overdrive and we couldn't "sing" properly (?!) -- we decided to fight fire with molten lava and turned every amp we owned on to 10+ and leaned as many guitars and basses we could plug in against them and they roared/HOWLED like airplanes burning over the pacific -- we could only enter the playing room with hands pressed hard against our ears and even then it was physically stunning -- we ran a sick outmoded beatbox through the p.a. and it blew out horrendous distorted pulsations. Of course we recorded the whole thing and a few months later we mixed it down into sections, ultra-processing it to a wholly other "piece" -- in a way, it's my favorite record of ours -- I hope jason digs it. --- keep on keep on keep on --- thurston/sonic youth/nyc 1998.

The phone number listed for the San Francisco Suicide Prevention Line is actually incorrect by one digit. After the initial release, a piece of paper w/ the following message was including w/ new copies of the EP:

The correct phone
number of the San
Francisco Suicide
Prevention Hotline
is 415-781-0500
