I thought this would be a good start to some 90’s posts. When I queued up aMiniature’s albums I thought I’d be posting something off of DepthFiveRateSix (my fav release), but when I hit this song (off of the “Murk Time Cruiser” LP) I hit replay 3 times so the choice was obvious.
This track makes me wish I took photos all those years ago. I believe I saw these guys perform with Three Mile Pilot … Or was it Chune? Eh, I can’t remember now. See! A photo would have helped here.
Doyoucompute has made me want to go back and start posting some of the great music I listened to during the 90’s. While this song isn’t from that decade, the lyrics are spot on for the moment.
1995 is missing buses It’s walking 15 miles to see your love It’s knowing you’re alive through all the fuzz It’s never coming down from going up
1995 is cutting classes It’s sitting over coffees talking indie treats It’s the mere sensation of being the first one that you see When morning opens up the skies You see me when daylight opens up your eyes
And though I’m happier now I always long somehow Back to 1995
All my friends have different plans to make their lives worth while Some for the better Some for worse Some have gone to different cities searching every mile For missing pieces that will make a whole
1995 seems like a long way to go If you ever were to find your way back home But the only thing I really miss is being the first one that you see When morning opens up the skies You see me when daylight opens up your eyes
Dutch band De Kift makes me think of three things when I listen to them: The Ex, Mike Watt, and this scene from Future Primitive where Per Welinder emerges from a manhole yelling some stuff I can’t understand.
