Since the odds of a Sonic Youth reunion are next to nil these days, we’re all going to have to make do with yesterday’s news of looming reissues from the band’s back catalog. While several key albums — Dirty, Goo and Daydream Nation — already received expanded box set treatments, June 10 will see a standard 2XLP/CD pressing of Daydream Nation and a CD version of Ciccone Youth’s The Whitey Album (a side project including hey-we-have-a-sense-of-humor-too covers of Madonna and Robert Palmer) through Sonic Youth’s own SYR imprint.

Looking a little further into the future, the group’s pre-Geffen output — including Bad Moon Rising, EVOL, Sister and Confusion is Sex — will also be repressed in vinyl and CD editions. Watch a video of Sonic Youth tearing through “Teenage Riot” below…
