Squids rockin' the whitaker block party
I found the SST Screaming Trees anthology at House of Records and have been spinning it non-stop. This video shows a band bringing it the way it needs to be brung--yes! Gary Lee--an inspiring ax guy. Buzz Factory was a walk-off Cecil Cooper three-run homer next to Nirvana's '61 Maris...an inspiring band for SST to sign because they used tons of unhip reverb and exposed the Northwest sound/heritage in a cool low-fi way.
The Daily Emerald has this to say about the Joe Strummer tribute show tomorrow night.
