Just as the 1990s broke, we got the debut album from a new band containing Kim Deal from The Pixies and Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses fame. Little did we know how far they’d go. Pod remains one of the seminal alt-rock LPs of its time, regularly featuring on ‘Best Of The Decade’ lists. It can also lay claim to having been one of Kurt Cobain’s favourite records. It’s no surprise that the album was so well regarded since Pod contains track after track of detailed, well-honed songcraft. Cuts like ‘Hellbound’ and ‘Doe’ are now archetypal alt-punk guitar numbers, while ‘Oh!’ is an affecting ballad ala Mazzy Star. They also do a fine job of flipping one of the best songs by The Beatles, the obtuse ‘Happiness Is A Warm Gun’, into loud-quiet-loud rager.
Stock on order, expected soon.
