KOREA GIRL self titled 1999


By request for Az

This isn't a release I'd expect from Asian Man Records who used to specialize in ska releases. Korea Girl evokes a toned down duo with relaxing vocal styles, jangling, poppy guitars rounded out by a nice indie sound.

MAXIWAGON Calls in Sick 1996

Allmusic
Debuting in their native San Francisco, Maxiwagon quickly established themselves in the surrounding indie pop environment. With their fuse of jumpy, punk guitar riffs backed by a flow of bouncy indie pop, the lineup of Dave Bergman (vocals/guitar), Janna (bass), and Frank (drums) eventually caught the attention of Omnibus Records in 1999. That same year, Maxiwagon eventually released their first album, Call in Sick.

THE HIGH Somewhere Soon 1990


If you dig Trash Can Sinatras, Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets and other Manchester sound bands, you'll like this!

ROLLERSKATE SKINNY Horsedrawn Wishes 1996


One for that rainy-day, difficult-but-rewarding pile. This Dublin trio whips up dense stormclouds of guitar and electronic "orchestration" which singer Ken Griffin seeds with evocative streams of lyric fragments. --Jeff Bateman

MAZEY FADE Secret Watchers Built the World 1994

From LastFM
Liverpool power trio who made an extraordinary racket for a couple of years back in the early nineties. John Peel famously nominated them for a Mercury Music prize in ‘93 and the band broke up in shock. Not for the faint hearted.

LAMB self titled 1996


No one requested this but I've not heard this in years, plus I love the cover artwork on this.

SOLEX Pick Up 1999

Mix a little Monsieur Blumenberg with Butter 08 and Beck, and you've created Solex. I do not know how I missed this band the first time. Amazing!

EVERGREEN self titled 1996

Featured the drummer from Slint, Louisville, Kentucky locals and not to be confused with a California band of the same name.

NEW BAD THINGS Freewheel! 1995


David A. uploads another great band, New Bad Things for you all to check out. When I first heard this, it reminded me a lot of Number One Cup. And I fucking love this! Here's David's review:
The New Bad Things were a Portland band have a sloppy, poppy, lo-fi sound. Released on Candy-Ass records in 1992, this album was their first. They released three more albums on the UK Lissy label, Pop Secret, and a collection of “C-Sides” for Blackbean and Placenta in 1999 before changing their name to “No Bad Things” around 2000.

FROGPOND Count to Ten 1996

1997 brought Frogpond to Pensacola where they packed Sluggo's so tightly we were all smashed against each other. They rocked the fucking place so much everyone was jumping up and down. The next day my neck and legs were so sore from dancing in my combat boots but it was all worth it.

WEIRD PAUL Lo Fidelity High Anxiety 1991


David A. was kind enough to share this with us. Here's what he wrote about Weird Paul: "Released in 1991 on Long Island’s now defunct Homestead Records, the album’s standout track is the prolixly titled “Scott Baio Was Seen at the (Legendary) Pink Dot Convenience Store Buying 12 Cans of Tuna and a Carton of Cigarettes”. I think your fans will enjoy it."

I do for sure. Weird Paul makes me smile.

STOMPBOX Stress 1994


CONSOLIDATED Business of Punishment 1994

Wikipedia:
Consolidated were notable for including in each of their live performances a period of time in which microphones were passed among audience members, who could then discuss, rebut, argue or elaborate upon the topics of Consolidated's songs. Consolidated devised these interactions as a way to subvert the typically passive experience of watching a band perform, empowering the audience members to respond and articulate their own opinions on issues addressed in the song lyrics or even the nature of the performance itself. Consolidated recorded many of these interactions and sampled excerpts of them to be included on their albums. In some cases, these samples were arranged and featured as short interludes between songs, while in other cases they were worked into the sonic collages of the songs themselves (e.g., "Crusading Rap Guys" on the 1991 LP Friendly Fa$cism.)

In a Perfect World
1995

My friend Stu saw them play at Sluggo's and the vocalist was having mic problems and started throwing a shitfit over it. Not impressive. But the music is very much in the vein of Touch & Go or Am Rep bands. Check it out. The records are tantrum free.
