As reported by Pitchforkmedia, an exclusive “celebrity-chosen” compilation of Sonic Youth songs will be sold only at Starbucks, and will include one new exclusive song SY will record just for the corporate coffee-mongers. Read all about Sonic Youth and Starbucks.
That’s a little weird…this whole Starbucks thing is really strange to me… coffee and CD’s? Especially Sonic Youth!? Who in THEE hell is going to buy coffee and a Sonic Youth CD besides possibly me? Are there really that many Sonic Youth fans who love Starbucks coffee? I would think hard core SY fans would be more about saying screw the big company and possibly be pissed about this little venture…but I’m going to bet that this album sells the most in Sonic Youth history. How about THAT for irony?
