NYC Ghosts Flowers LP

Santa Monica, CA: Geffen Records, 2000. Burroughs, William S. First Edition. LP. Signed by Sonic Youth member Thurston Moore Jacket - Very Fine Condition, LP - Near Fine Condition NYC Ghosts & Flowers, a 2000 album by Sonic Youth, is mainly a creative reaction to the theft of their instruments in July 1999, in which Irreplaceable guitars and effects pedals with numerous modifications were stolen. It is also the first Sonic Youth album to extensively use prepared guitar since 1985's Bad Moon Rising, most notably on "Small Flowers Crack Concrete" (a file inserted over the neck pickup) and 'Lightnin' (a bike horn wedged under the strings). It is also considered to be the album on which the influence of beat poetry on the band is most evident. The lyrics to most songs resemble the beat style, Lenny Bruce and D. A. Levy are name-checked and the cover art reproduces a 1992 painting by William S. Burroughs. This first pressing is signed by Sonic Youth member Thurston Moore on the lower left corner of the front sleeve, just below the parental advisory sticker: "To Jeffrey and family,/-(heart symbol)- Thurston" "Jeffrey" is Jeffrey Weinberg, publisher of Water Row Books. A most rare & unique item, for devotees of Sonic Youth & WSB. Near Fine / Very Fine. [Item #1077]
