REMY ZERO self titled 1996



Discogs

Artist Biography by


Villa Elaine
Birmingham, AL-based Remy Zero dared to be moody and poetic when most American alternative rock had become overly aggressive and juvenile. Consisting of childhood friends Cinjun Tate (vocals, guitar), Cedric Lemoyne (bass), Jeffrey Cain (guitar), Shelby Tate (guitar, keyboards), and Gregory Slay (drums), Remy Zero was merely a group of schoolboys recording homemade tapes. In the mid-'90s, the band sent a demo to community radio station KCRW in Santa Monica, CA. It attracted the attention of Geffen Records, and the label eventually signed the group. In 1996, Remy Zero released its self-titled debut. The album was virtually unnoticed, but the band's 1998 follow-up, Villa Elaine, arrived with the Next Big Thing label as the group was thought of, mainly by its publicists, as a young U2 or Radiohead. The soaring "Prophecy" was a dead ringer for Radiohead, especially with its emotionally unrestrained vocals; however, many critics felt that the bandmembers were not able to reach the creative peaks of their idols on Villa Elaine. "Prophecy" landed on modern-rock radio just when the format was banishing melodic, '80s-influenced alternative pop from its airwaves in favor of rap-metal and mall-ready punk. Remy Zero simply didn't fit in. The group vanished from the scene until 2001, when it recorded The Golden Hum. First single "Save Me" -- recalling the toe-tapping anthems of the Alarm with a Radiohead makeover -- became the theme song of the TV drama Smallville later that year.

AllMusic Review by

Crows is the sound of a band that's evidently listened to a whole lot of Birthday Party -- even if the album is a little too slick and polished for this sound, the Crows find a few rather compelling constructions, and come out sounding not so bad at all.

TUGBOAT ANNIE Wake Up & Disappear 1997

Thanks to Jim

Artist Biography by


Superfriends
Since they made their debut in 1992, Tugboat Annie have maintained their style of aggressively bouncy noise pop into their native scene of Boston. Consisting of Mike Bethmann (vocals/ guitar), Jay Celeste (guitar), Jon Sulkow (bass) and Tim Barrett (drums), the band started their discography with a split seven-inch between Crazy Alive in 1993 and again with Milf the following year. Sonic Bubblegum Records eventually followed through and released their next EP entitled Jack Knife before putting out Tugboat Annie's first full-length Superfriends, both of which came out in 1995. After signing with Big Top Records in 1996, their second album Wake Up And Disappear came out in 1997 with a full-scale tour of the United States in support for the remainder of the year. Upon their return to Boston, Tugboat Annie's Separation Songs EP followed in 1998; The Space Around You appeared two years later.

OUR LADY PEACE Clumsy 1997

by request

Artist Biography by


Naveed
Our Lady Peace was one of the most successful Canadian bands of the post-grunge era, issuing platinum-selling album after platinum-selling album while also enjoying modest acclaim in America. The group formed at the University of Toronto in 1992, where vocalist Raine Maida and guitarist Mike Turner (a British expatriate) first banded together under the name "As If". They later recruited bassist Chris Eacrett and jazz drummer Jeremy Taggart, and the quartet changed its name to Our Lady Peace in tribute to a Mark Van Doren poem. After partnering with the Canadian branch of Sony Records, Our Lady Peace released 1995's Naveed, a strong debut album that sparked the modern rock hit "Starseed." A smaller label, Relativity, released the album in America, and Our Lady Peace built their North American audience by touring with fellow Canadian Alanis Morissette that summer.
