Album Review

Originally meant to be the band’s debut album, the self-titled record was recorded with Bob Weston (of Shellac) in 1994 before being mysteriously shelved and thrust into a world of obscurity. Remastered from one of the bootleg cassettes copies that’s been floating around for over a decade, the album serves as a snapshot of the band just before releasing the experimental noise/sludge of their proper debut, My Love Is Higher Than Your Assessment of What My Love Could Be. Leaning more towards (relatively) straight-ahead sludge metal, the album feels like the band's later work (Special Wishes, Life...The Best Game in Town), with the emphasis more on the crushing guitars and Creston Spiers’ anguished vocals. What’s really surprising about this album is that, unlike a lot of long-lost demo albums and rarities compilations, these songs feel fully realized, which makes sense, seeing as this was supposed to be Harvey Milk’s debut. Rather than showing the humble beginnings of an experimental band, this album highlights the fact that, even from the very beginning, they were the enigmatic and impossibly heavy group that they are today.

Must have for any Milk enthusiast.

So this is what there first album would've been if some knucklehead engineer hadn't disappeared with it almost 20 years ago. A bootleg of it resurfaced a few years ago & the drummer recently remastered the heck out of it. I think "My Love Is Higher Than Your Assessment of What My Love Could Be" is a great start but this would've been a classic too. Harvey Milk is the meanest, saddest, & strangest heavy band that I have ever heard.

Pure.Raw.Heavy.Real.

First heard Harvey Milk on Jango with"Dating Pressures". I was hooked after that. This album is insane. The drumming on this album is my fave, right next to Bonham. Guitar and Bass are HUUUUUUGE. Dating Pressures has the best outro...its keeps going and going. Jims Polish has the best slow-motion guitar solo you'll ever hear. You have to think and pay attention to listen to these guys. Smart band. Very clever musicians. Playing this slow is not easy........and these guys hit every beat full force.

Biography

Formed: Athens, GA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

An anomaly among the college/indie rock-centered Athens, GA, scene from which they emerged, cult favorite Harvey Milk was responsible for some of the slowest, heaviest, and most uncompromising rock music created in the latter half of the '90s. The trio formed in the early '90s with a lineup of Creston Spiers (guitar/vocals), Stephen Tanner (bass), and Paul Trudeau (drums). They released their first album, My Love Is Higher Than Your Assessment of What My Love Could Be, on the tiny North Carolina-based...
