Label: Touch And Go
Alright, this post is kind of a "gimmie", maybe even a copout. If you've found your way to this place in the world wide web than chances are you already own this. That dawned on me as I was going through the trouble of uploading it (oooooh, my aching haaaaands), but then I figured, there's got to be a couple folks who were slightly turned off by Arcwelder's melodicism back when this record came out, but now, maybe just now, they're ready to embrace the poppy side of "noise rock".
So are you ready? Are you? Who's a good boy? Who's gonna catch that frisbee?
Pull is Arcwelder's first album for Touch and Go, and my favorite of all their releases. It has elements of later day Husker Du (they were all from Minneapolis after all) mixed in with their roiling, boiling, noises, which left them lumped in more with Tar and Jawbox rather than Jesus Lizard and Rapeman. Different strokes right?
My next post won't be so easy, I promise. I'll really try harder.
