Garden Variety / Chune - split 7" Cargo Recs 1995
Here's a cool split release from 2 excellent 90's punk bands. I was a pretty big fan of Garden Variety in the 90's and if I told you I saw them live 30 times I might actually be underestimating. Garden Variety were a real emotional powerhouse of a band live with impassioned vocals backed by straight forward punk music. I'd say they have a touch of a Jawbreaker influence in their music. Chune on the other hand move at a bit slower tempo but again with emotional vocals and rolling bass lines. I saw Chune live a bunch of times as well and they were really an excellent band that never got the recognition they deserved.Unfortunately,both bands have sort of faded away into the distant memory of 90' punk/emo which is very unfortunate, as both bands deserve to be heard. So give this one a listen and if you like what you hear keep your eyes peeled for their records...I bet most can be found in local record store used bins for next to nothing...Dave G.
Garden Variety - Stickler
Chune - Dual Rectums
P.S. This post is dedicated to JBM who is my only blog follower that seems to care when I post these 90's rock gems.
