Sweet Water

0
0
One of the second/third string grunge bands that followed Nirvana, Pearl Jam, AIC, Screaming Trees,
et al., out of Seattle in the ealy 1990's with the added twist of a reasonably legitimate comeback, seriously "post-wave".

Sweet Water were bassist Cole Peterson, guitarist Rich Credo, drummer Paul Uhlir, and singer Adam Czeisler.......in the initial grunge era, they released a few albums reminiscent of, say, Mother Love Bone or Green River, fans of the classic early 90's Seattle grunge sound (like myself) may enjoy the vintage releases that I have here (Note: I do NOT have the difficult to locate "Ter" from 1992, I think I have heard it but not sure, anyone with a copy to share I would be thrilled to hear from), "Sweet Water" from 1993 (highlights: "Crawl" and "Sleep", remember the Seattle bands' fondnss for one-word tiles?), and the similar "Superfriends" from 1995 (Standout tracks: "Cake  and Strychnine", "No Syrup For Your Pancakes")......


All of which would add  to a fairly undistingushed career, other than this very odd career pattern : in 2009 (!), after several years of hiatus from recording/performing, they released what at least I consider to be thier bestrk, "Clear theTarmac"......really, a surprisingly hard rocking and really listenable album. Sounds like 1996-2008 never even happened, a fine, retro-90's sounding effort, complete with the short song titles ("Rock Steady", "Stereo"), this is something of a "retro-classic" if that is even the proper terminology......

Not TERRIBLY familiar, see what ya think about the older efforts, as well as"Clear the Tarmac", anyone jonesing for some classic-sounding Grunge, here be a small bit of it at least!

Always trying to keep it varied, we'll see what I have up next.....taking a SMALL break from the BIG projects (Mott, Riot Grrrls, XTC) for a few days, but there ARE several more in the pipeline!
