Album Review

After regressing from the creative height of their second album, Dayglo, Love Battery finally released an album worthy of their promise. Bringing back to the fore their shimmering psychedelic pop, their reduced commercial prospects ignited a fire beneath the band judging from the playing and energy manifested on the album. The addition of Dan Peters (Mudhoney) on drums definitely tightens the screws, and the reinvigorated rhythm section provides the perfect foundation for guitarist Kevin Whitworth's inspired flights of fancy, including, as on Dayglo, some of the best slide guitar work in alternative rock. This is a remarkably solid album, with not a throwaway track in the bunch. The band mixes it up between slower, thoughtful anthems ("Punks Want Rights," "Corporate Memo"); roaring, soaring, punk-fueled raves ("Snipe Hunt," "Cute One"); and rich psychedelic pop excursions ("Faithfull," "Confusion Au GoGo"). Even new directions are well-rendered, as evidenced by the appropriately bluesy "Colorblind," "Guilty of Everything," a slow-burn number riding a Bo Diddley beat, and "Monkey Brain," which incorporates harmonica into its acid-addled thrall. Ron Nine's vocals are more focused than ever, and all the songs are actually about something. If this album had been released in 1993 as their follow-up to Dayglo, it'd be on the tips of many lips rather than the answer to the sadly unasked question: Where are they now?


Formed: 1989 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s

Along with Screaming Trees, Love Battery fell into the more psychedelic wing of Seattle grunge, adding a liberal dose of Beatlesque pop to the requisite hunks of mind-bending guitar fuzz. Formed in 1989, the band took its name from a Buzzcocks song, and originally included singer Ron Nine (born Ron Rudzitis, ex-Room Nine), guitarist Kevin Whitworth (ex-Crisis Party), bassist Jim Tillman (formerly of grunge forebears the U-Men), and Mudhoney drummer Dan Peters. Peters left in short order and was replaced...
