NOTES

  • This EP, released just half a year after "Confusion Is Sex", features several cuts from "Confusion", one live recording, and 3 new songs recorded live to 2-track at Wharton's studio in October 1983. "Shaking Hell" was recorded on October 15th, 1983 @ Plugg Club in NYC.
  • "Kill Yr Idols" was the first Sonic Youth release on Zensor, hence the inclusion of 2 songs from "Confusion is Sex", which wasn't released on Zensor until later (along with the self-titled record).
  • First pressing had title super-imposed over "Confusion Is Sex" cover.
  • The four non-Confusion songs were included as bonus tracks on the DGC reissue of "Confusion is Sex" in 1995.
  • From FILTER magazine 2006 SY discography self-commentary:

    "An EP made in 1983, released in Germany when it seemed that no-one else was interested in releasing a Sonic Youth record. Consolidating gains made on Confusion--and rocking tunes direct to 2-track tape, no funny studio business--some becoming staples in our set--like Brother James. [LR]"
