Poster Children, "Evidence"
There was a very good scene in Champaign-Urbana in the late 80s/early 90s, with Hum being probably the best known these days, but at the time the Poster Children probably were a little more famous. It's hard for me to tell for sure, of course, but I seem to remember more buzz around them. They ended up on Reprise before Hum was on a major label, got some MTV play, and generally were pretty prominent for a little while for an indie rock band. I hardly see any mention of them any more, though, and honestly had kind of forgotten them myself. Probably should remind myself about their records, I'm enjoying this track.
Riverdales, "She's Gonna Break Your Heart"
I'm not going to name...a certain pioneering NYC punk band in this description.
Doesn't leave me much to talk about, does it?
This is a collage piece from It's All In Your Head FM, a live album that in turn was compiled out of a radio show. I actually saw them on this tour, and it was a very strange experience. I wouldn't mind seeing this kind of thing more, though. They would later revisit this material, a meditation on religion, with a more elaborate studio take on the...uh, songs?
The Raconteurs, "Salute Your Solution"
Outside that track, just a bunch of solid rock this time around. Good work, shuffle!
