Swervedrver Bio

The band who brought the car song into the shoegaze era, Swervedriver was formed in Britain in 1990 by vocalists/guitarists Adam Franklin and Jimmy Hartridge, bassist Adi Vines, and drummer Graham Bonner. Fusing the swirling textures of the shoegazer aesthetic with the more traditional boundaries of pop, the group debuted with a series of brilliant EPs -- Son of Mustang Ford, Rave Down, and Sandblasted -- before issuing their full-length debut, Raise, in 1991. After a U.S. tour in support of Soundgarden, Bonner left the band, followed quickly by the departure of Vines; 1992's Never Lose That Feeling EP, their strongest effort to date, initially appeared to mark the group's swan song. But in 1993, Swervedriver returned; with the core of Franklin and Hartridge rounded out by new drummer Jez, they released their sophomore LP Mezcal Head. An import-only release, Ejector Seat Reservation, followed in 1995; in the fall of 1998, Swervedriver resurfaced with their fourth effort, 99th Dream.

CHINASKI

Fury & Pathos
Swervedriver is the type of band that gets better with age. Track highlights include 99th Dream, Up From The Sea, and These Times. This album weaves textures of sound with fury and pathos - you'll easily see why music critics have called them one of the most underrated bands of the 1990s.

CD Baby


When I have a nice look back on my college years and think about the albums that kept me content in the face of poverty and long hours of studying, this one is a winner that I still adore. To me, it is the perfect collision between shoegazer wash and rock that means it. I always wished for a band that could give me a rhythm section with chops and a guitarist that had shredding ability (but didn't necessarily have to shred) and a ton of dreamy reverb and delay. Previous to this album, Catherine Wheel had been the only ones that had come close. From the opening slide and trill (which can still be heard through the rest of the intro, just buried in the mix... that's how smart they are) through some eye-poppingly creative songwriting that's luxuriously spacious, but paired with musicianship and tones that are remarkably dense, this album is a perfect set of instant nostalgia songs, and one that lasts through sentimentality years later.
