DILLON FENCE Rosemary 1992

By request


by Stewart Mason

Although Dillon Fence released three full-length albums and several stand-alone EPs between 1991 and 1994, and at one point was the highest profile group on Mammoth Records after Juliana Hatfield and the Blake Babies, the band never got much in the way of critical acclaim, nor did their records spark much word of mouth outside of a small cult audience based in their native North Carolina. That said, there's a low-key charm to their brand of genial jangle pop that fans of the Connells or Guadalcanal Diary will most likely find appealing.

thanks for the reminder of how great Dillon Fence was (and how much fun Hobex and solo Greg Humphreys is!)

thanks for sharing and spreading the good groove

Thanks for this. I think I saw them open for J Hatfield in Nashville (1993ish?), but since I don't remember, it will be nice to reintroduce myself.
