JUNO – Live at the Crocodile Cafe, Seattle 29/10/99
April 23, 2010
JUNO, a band that bucked the ‘shoegaze’ trend by a good few years more inspired by the space of Talk Talk than the tremelo dives of MBV. Hard to believe its been over ten years since I first heard this band via the ‘Magnified & Reduced’ 7″. It was advertised as a mix of Squirrel Bait, Husker Du and Slint, I was sold on that alone and followed the band from then on. Their first full length was rather bleak and depressing but still gave way to moments of anguish and catharsis. To have three guitar players is rather intense and I’m not sure this works as a live recording although hear for yourself and click the image above.
