Description

Limited edition first printing of 400 copies, signed and numbered by Jeffrey Lewis. This mini-zine features a re-imagining of Sonic Youth's 1990 major label debut, Goo! All eleven songs have been rewritten by Jeffrey as eleven sonnets in the Shakespearian mode! Each line is in iambic pentameter (the rhythm of "To BE or NOT to BE, that IS the QUEStion…") and each poem is structured into the sonnet structure of three quatrains and a closing couplet. Naturally there's also accompanying illustrations by Jeffrey.

Now you may ask, what exactly is the entertainment value in a little 3-inch stapled booklet of sonnets based on some old Sonic Youth songs? We're not sure. A dollar or two perhaps? And will there be more of these mini-booklets to come?
