HEMLOCK – Valvestate

June 12, 2009


 Following on from the Fishwife post… Hemlock features members of Fishwife, Reclyner, Rocket From The Crypt, No Knife, Tanner, Radio Wendy, Shortwave Channel, Camera Obscura etc. I’m sure that has pricked a few people’s ears up & it also keeps things in line with this blog’s title. ‘Valvestate’ (Goldenrod, 1996) fits somewhere between Tanner and early No Knife,  it’s more of an indie vibe here than clattering hardcore. Incidentally Chris Prescott plays guitar/vocals here but has spent time drumming  in both Tanner and No Knife. The last three tracks on this CD are from Hemlock’s second 7″ recorded by Gar Wood, also note the rather decent cover of Duran Duran’s ‘Save a prayer’.


Came across the first Hemlock 7″ whilst searching my HD:
