Split singles are usually the byproduct of shotgun marriages and/or sleazy cash grabs by labels eager to exploit even most the tenuous connections between two entirely unrelated artists. BUT ENOUGH ABOUT OUR JICKS/LA GUNS single!
For entirely different reasons we’re not getting more records from the late Jay Reatard or the splitsvile-population-them Sonic Youth and it would be the height of exaggeration to claim this 2009 curio is a highlight of either’s vast discography. But that’s what Matador Revisionist History is all about, exaggerating heights! Primo Carnera might’ve been 6′ 5 1/2 inches tall in reality, but look the fuck out for 7-foot tall Primo Canera appeals to the PT Barnum, PT Cruiser and PT Anderson in us in equal measures.
Also, maybe you slept on a chance to buy it the first time.
