That said I expected a lot from this book and I was not disappointed.
The book is written in English. The book is 720 pages long, small- the exact size to fit a 7 inch vinyl inside.
The book contains two, a blue one with a composition by Lee (titled 'Rats demo') and a Kim composition (titled 'Song for Reverse Karaoke'). The second one, a red one with a composition by Thurston (titled 'Aerosol') and another composition by Steve (titled 'Ivan').
It includes many interviews and articles about the band.
It also includes interviews, Top 10 lists, poems and articles by the band. Things written by them about people like Allen Ginsberg, Kurt Cobain, Patti Smith, Mike Kelley, William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac etc.
The art included in the book is by Richard Prince, Mike Kelley, Kim Gordon (collages and watercolors and whatnot), Richard Kern, Gerhard Richter and all the other obvious artists who have collaborated with SY over the years.
There are stills from many videos including 'Kool Thing', Ciccone's 'Addicted to Love', 'Little Trouble Girl', 'Dirt Boots', 'Disappearer'.
The book also has many many photographs and in them you will find the band-including past members- Tom Verlaine, Allen Ginsberg, Lydia Lunch, R.E.M, John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Andy Warhol, Madonna, Bachir Attar, William Burroughs and Chloe Sevingy.
The book includes a list of all the SY tracks that had been recorded at the time of the publication of the book.Read more ›
this is a stunningly put together piece. you can really tell how much the editors appreciate and care about not only the band but the presentation. every page is overflowing with curated content from interviews, articles, lists, photos etc. and if you're an SY fan you probably appreciate all their pop culture satellite interests from neil young to madonna to minor threat and believe me that is represented too. my only regret is that i didn't buy this sooner. probably the best thing i own.
