Boomkat Product Review:
The players: Britt Walford, Tim Ruth, Sean Mcloughlin, Troy Cox : following the premature break-up of what would become one of the most important bands in underground rock, the Slint boys all went their separate ways, without straying too far away from each other. Brian Mcmahan formed The For Carnation while David Pajo went solo under the Aerial M and Papa M monikers. Britt Walford formed the Breeders with Kim Deal, and subsequently bailed after recording Pod. All three helped Will Oldham get Palace Brothers off the ground, and yet with such a rich history between them, the one band that Louisville natives are most likely to proudly stake claim to is Walford's post-breeders garage punk outfit Evergreen. Formed from the ashes of local legends cinderblock in the early 90s and boasting a revolving line-up that would make spinal tap blush, the group solidified in 1993 when walford joined on drums. A tight mix of percussive guitars, strolling, funky bass and relentlessly catchy drum beats escalated the drunken vocal sways of Sean Mcloughlin to immeasurable heights. Equally inspired by Fugazi, Television and the Stooges, Evergreen was a breath of fresh air that only Louisville folks were really ready to breathe. While the rest of the world was too busy going ape shit over increasingly soulless faux-jazz, Evergreen were throwing down party-punk jams to tear the roof down. Recorded in brilliant dance-punk stereophonic mid-fi by James Murphy (now of the DFA), this album seemed like a throwback in 1995. Oddly, it now feels more at home amidst the increasingly soulless faux-garage rock revival. a classic.
