Product Description

Another installment of Konkurrent's fantastic series which invites bands to record while touring Holland, giving 2 days to record 20-30 min of whatever they want. In June 2001 SY played the Holland Festival. For their studio time they invited the Dutch ICP-jazzers HAN BEENICK, AB BEARS & WOLTER WIERBOS, plus LUC & TERRIE of THE legendary EX! In one day they recorded these delicate, abstract & elusive miniatures that fit in the jazz tradition rather than pop music, based on sounds, instant composing & fantasy, as if the music went out on a stroll without a specific direction, open for surprises & unexpected turns. Toss in JIM O'ROURKE on the recording & you've got yourself an exciting autumn treasure!

I love Sonic Youth, always hav always will, but im writing this as a warning: ATTENTION JUGGALOS! This is not sonic youth with our beloved Insane Clown Posse, but some pretentious Neu band, sounding like a mix of Grunge and Jazz, if that floats your boat, then buy it! It isnt the same Sonic Youth sound. I personally think Sonic Youth have passed thier best period a long time ago, eg Goo, Dirty are amazing. A collaberation with Insane Clown Posse would be unbelievable, but i doubt it'lll ever happen, althought the songs Sonic Youth did with hip-hop bands on the Judgement Night soundtrack were phenomenal. This review is only to warns others not to buy this by mistake, i feel dumb, lol.

On the back of the CD the people who wrote this album were really chuffed with themselves having said "It only took us a day to make and record this album " ... It shows .. Utter crap .. Avoid at all costs

4.0 out of 5 stars guitar noise from the jazz end 19 Nov. 2003
By D. Archibald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are some albums that you never imagined existed, but when you see them you have to get them right away; this was one of those for me. 'What's this? New Sonic Youth? With ICP and The Ex?!' How could I resist? So I picked it right up, and it didn't disappoint. From the thoughtful (if not quite delicate) drum salvo that introduces the first tune to the exhausted guitar sigh that ends the intense last number, the album is a delightful record of a moment of true musical communication.
There's a definite jazz feeling about this recording, and it's due to more than just the presence of two ICP Orchestra horn players and ICP drummer Hans Bennink's guiding hand. The whole thing was recorded in just one day, and as there aren't any 'tunes' we can safely imagine that everything presented here is a first take: the things that didn't turn out as well just didn't make it onto the record. This means that the emphasis is on the interplay between the musicians, who let us listen in as each number develops from the grain of an idea into a complete whole.
Of course, there are people (probably lots) who will say that they don't pay to hear development, and that anyways all this just sounds like noise. In reality, though, the tracks on this album are far from homogeneous. I won't say they 'repay careful listening,' because that would just mean they don't sound good from the start: what they do repay is listening for more than one superficial second and then saying 'I don't get it.' 'IV,' the second track (as free improvisations the tunes don't have titles, and the numbers aren't all in order), is held together by a fractured electronic walking bass line provided by Ex bassist Luc Ex, while the guitars, horns and percussion gradually swell over it into a wall of sound and then recede again into individal exclamations. 'V' is a duet between Wolter Wierbos' muted trombone and a guitar (Thurston Moore, is my guess), backed up by delicate percussion playing, while 'VI' features probing clarinet explorations (from Ab Baars) over halting bass figures. The last track, 'X,' has the most regular rhythm of anything on the album, but the beat still seems to grow organically out of the improvisations, and feels all the more powerful for that (the drumming on this one is a thing of beauty).
Fans of Sonic Youth should be aware that this album is much more like the SYR series than it is any of the Sonics' more commercial recordings, but that shoudn't turn them off. The noise on this record is just an extension of things like 'The Diamond Sea' and 'Karen Revisited,' with the addition of other thoughtful musicians--some of whom inspired Sonic Youth to begin with--and you can hear the joy that all the participants in this musical communication. It sounds good for its own sake too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Instant Composing 25 Nov. 2003
By Jared S Harkness - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I imagine there are people who will hear this album and dismiss it as crap. Random sounds and notes strung together without any rhyme or reason. But those are the people who think that "music" is just what you hear on MTV, and this is certainly not the cd for them. This is all about walking into a studio with no plans, or ideas, and just making art. They don't try to shape it into something beautiful or pop sensible, they just let it happen, and that in itself is beautiful. It's unusual, for sure, but that doesn't make it bad. So much music out there is just copying the Beatles, or the Clash, or Elvis, or whatever, but this cd is 100 percent original.

3.0 out of 5 stars this is really experimental stuff 24 Oct. 2002
By Juan P. Holguera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a big fan of Sonic Youth and all of their records. I specially like their noisy stuff for their own label: SYR. This is just like those ones. So if you like them, get this one; but if you don't, you better don't try.
