Touch And Go Records Tracklist: 1 I Hope U Don't Survive 2 The Old You 3 Is She A Sign 4 The Brain 5 Bourbon Beard 6 LR72 7 The Third 8 White Lightning Platinum is the eighth full-length album released by indie rock band Silkworm. It is the band's third album released on Touch and Go Records. Like their previous album Lifestyle, Steve Albini and his girlfriend Heather Whinna recorded and produced the album respectively. Matt Kadane from Bedhead and The New Year played keyboards on this album. I Hope U Don't Survive 3:25. The Third 2:09. The Old You 3:22. Is She A Sign 2:28. The Brain 2:59. Bourbon Beard 3:13. Italian Platinum, whose packaging is so minimal that it's a waste of paper, is the band's best release since 1996's whoopass and splashy Firewater, though it just sounds like uninviting racket the first time you hear it, and it continues Firewater's preoccupation with alcohol. In other words, if Firewater is their OK Libations, this disc is their Kid AA- slightly more penitent and therefore a great soundtrack for a punitive post-hangover jog. Italian Platinum is a slow-burner, an acquired taste, like, uh, Pawpaw's hard liquor. Album 2002 13 Songs. Italian Platinum. Alternative . Released 2002. Italian Platinum Tracklist.

Discussions of the Silkworm - Italian Platinum Album

My favorite Silkworm album. Absolutely beautiful, slightly atonal indie rock. Tight group, raw vocals. Delicious.
