Sonic Youth - Dirty: Wikipedia Album Entry
Dirty is an album by Sonic Youth that was originally released on July 21, 1992. It was deemed best album of 1992 by Entertainment Weekly magazine. On March 25, 2003, a double-CD deluxe edition of the album was released. It comprised the original album with additional B-sides, demos and rehearsal recordings.
* Ian MacKaye got credit for the "xtra guitar" on "Youth Against Fascism"
* As noted above, "Nic Fit" is a song originally by the DC band Untouchables. In that band is Ian's brother Alec MacKaye.
* Under the tray of the first pressing of the Dirty CD (and later in the booklet of the deluxe edition CD and LP) is a controversial photograph of performance artist Bob Flanagan. It was removed from all other pressings.
* The track "Sugar Kane" includes a possible reference to fellow indie rock band Half Japanese. The lyric "kiss me like a frog" may refer to the Half Japanese song of the same name.
* In the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin, the character Cal played by Seth Rogen is seen in one part of the movie wearing a t-shirt of the album cover.
* Sonic Youth's "JC" was inspired by Joe Cole's murder, and the Sonic Youth song "100%" was dedicated to him. Joe Cole was also a director for their music video "My Friend Goo".
* The song "Créme Brûlèe" is (intentionally?) misspelled; it should be written crème brûlée, as a reference for the french dessert.
