(The Dylans - funny, the 90's are almost twenty years ago)
Since I spent all of last week knee-deep in 70s Prog, I thought maybe it would be a nice change of pace to jump up a couple of decades and check out the somewhat vague and overlooked 90s. I keep thinking the 90s were the time radio stopped being relevant, stopped telling people what they were playing and generally gave up. Maybe I'm wrong, and maybe I was just listening to the wrong stations. Although I do remember commercial radio becoming un-listenable around this time and the only ones playing anything remotely interesting were college stations run by kids whose breathlessly adenoidal voices really made listening an endurance test.
But despite all that there were nuggets to be found. One of those nuggets, among many, to catch my attention were The Dylans.
Together really only a short period of time, and releasing just two albums, with personnel changes going on between the first and second. Nonetheless, they were a good band that mixed up a good combination of psych, shoe-gazing and rhythm.
"I Hope The Weather Stays Fine" is off their first album The Dylans.
You may not have heard them before - here's a good chance to.
