Sonic Youth Question

Does anyone know why the song 'Expressway To Yr Skull' is called 'Madonna, Sean and Me' on the 'Evol' CD? It also comes up on I Tunes as that....

Just to confuse things, it's got a third title - "the crucifixion of sean penn".

it was basically at the height of their Madonna fixation (see also Ciccone Youth's The Whitey Album and Into The Groove(y) single) - they'd known her from New York when she was she was a hanger on to the scene (and was going out with Jim Sclavunous (Nick cave & the bad seeds / grinderman / ex-sonic youth drummer) if I remember correctly.

Basically, it's a band in joke.

If you've got the vinyl version of EVOL then I'm sure all three titles are used on the sleeve / inner sleeve / record but I'd have to double check.

In fact, here's pictures of the sleeves, etc & a write up of the album - Sonic Youth Site Menu

Look at the pictures "vinyl back cover", "vinyl sleeve side 1" and "vinyl label side 2" for the three titles,
