Seems like we discussed at some point the brief ascension of the Richmond, Virginia music scene in the early to mid 90s. Maybe when Hose.Got.Cable was posted? Sounds about right.
So, here is further evidence that I was not blowing smoke up your collective arses, a compilation of bands making noise in Richmond during the...wait for it...early to mid 90s. Nice.
King Sour - moody and/or bouncy math rock
Uglyhead - dense, noisy punk akin to Hammerhead
Art Monks - instrumental hip hop with loud guitar noise and droning samples
Hose.Got.Cable - so good, so loud, the real "should have been" of this scene
Flailo - dirty scuzz-core, maybe a little Guzzard via Load steez going on?
Yardmonster - moments sound exactly like old Melvins, other moments are more post-punk
Labradford - you know this band...spaced out sounds that beat Explosions In The Sky to it by years
Pelt - stop/start, quiet/loud emo punk
Damn Near Red - female fronted, driving drone, but the second song is not all that hot
Somatron - redneck techno? look, not everything can be good on this record
Mulch - nasty, metally, gritty, sludgy, hardcore, a local favorite.
Buzzov*en - the best band to ever come out of Charlotte...untouchable.
Ladyfinger - herky-jerky noise rock with over-driven guitar
Spot Me 20 - minimal n riffery oise with a slight hip hop bend...again, they're not all winners
3.10 - background music...boring background music
So there it is, a little hit and miss, but I think you will enjoy the highlights, and you can skip past the low-lights. Deal?
