ROB SEZ: Making up for lost time with two Superchunk posts in 8 days. This one dials it back to the band's earlier years, when they were a younger, hungrier & very loud indie band. I prefer their later & more recent recordings (a bit more nuance & a bit less noise) — but every listener seems to have a different opinion. Special thanks to Trekkyt & Popmarter for recording, mastering & sharing the 1996 performance. Not sure who recorded & shared the 1994 live set, but I hereby thank him/her/them also. If you have more than a passing interest in this band, try both parts of the 1996 interview — a brief, fun listen.
