aMINATURE- Murk Time Cruiser
December 30, 2009
aMinature, perhaps the most overlooked of all San Diego punk… unjustly so because these jams are absolutely solid. If (like me) you assumed groups such as Tanner or No Knife just fell out of the sky then you’ve never heard aMinature. Nothing much by way of information (a running theme with this blog) bar this myspace page which has the basic history but no discography info. ‘Murk Time Cruiser’ features the propulsive drumming talent of Mark Trombino, and appears to be the last thing he ever played on (this album is from 1995). It’s a really great record and mandatory listening for fans of the ‘San Diego style’, although I’d say previous album ‘Depth five Rate six’ tops this (doesn’t feature Trombino). EDIT: saying that I think both are great, they rock equally.
This is the last posting for 2009, see you next decade for more of the same… Thanks for stopping by
