ciccone youth

   this band was formed in 1986 and lasted for a single ("burnin' up"/"tuff titty rap"/"into the groovey" on new alliance records) and then a follow-up full-length affair, the whitey album (dgc) which I had very little to do with (I only appear on one track which was my home demo for the "burnin' up" single). we never did any gigs but this band was critical for me because it was right after d. boon's death and the project really motivated me to get back into music. I have to gratefully thank the sonic youth for their help.
