Editors’ Notes

Washington, D.C.’s Shudder to Think represent everything ever intended for indie-rock bands in the ‘90s. Led by versatile singer Craig Wedren and backed by a band of instrumentalists who could break into whatever style struck their fancy, while remaining locked in step with each other, Shudder to Think challenged rock conventions while fulfilling them. This live album from their 2008 re-grouped tour finds the band in sharp form, clearly excited to be playing together again. Their eclectic, flexible catalog gets a full workout. The immediate pop charms of “Red House,” the extra-venom behind “Hit Liquor,” the swerving solid highway drive of “Lies About the Sky” pull together the hooks amidst the darkness. The band’s accessibility is part of their perversity. Dark tales lurk under the passionate hard — some call it punk — rock. The audience is miked for loud, ambient effect and listening here you could easily be tricked into thinking that these gentlemen were megastars alongside U2 and Radiohead in their era — and not “cult” faves who brushed alongside the mainstream.

Customer Reviews

STT shows you just what you missed in the 1990s

Craig, Nathan, Stu and the various drummers of Shudder To Think never really left us... they simply moved on to other projects. But by recording and releasing the best of their 2008 reunion tour, the guys have let the modern audience in on what they missed back in the heyday of their Dischord and Epic years. Having seen them at the old Peabodys in Cleveland's Flats district during the 'Get Your Goat' period, and again at Bogart's in Cincinnati during the '50,000 B.C.' tour, I can say from first-hand experience that they have lost none of their spunk, power, or musical prowess. This CD presents a band whose artsy and sometimes bizarre brand of alt-rock remains as serious and brazen as it was a decade earlier. A must-listen for old Shudder fans or fans of the many indie rockers who followed their strong lead.

Shudder to Think rocks

Shudder to Think is one of the best bands that ever existed, and Craig Wedren one of the most important and versatile singers and songwriters in the business. The band rocks as hard on this record as they ever did in their heyday, and leaves no doubt they still have it. This is a must-have for fans of the band, and should leave a solid impression upon newcomers as well. My only regret is that I wasn't at the show to see the performance.

Nonetheless, Live From Home stands a testament to their greatness.

Great

This is really great. Good job.

Biography

Formed: 1986 in Washington D.C.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s

Shudder to Think's hardcore punk background (courtesy of their affiliation with the D.C.-based label Dischord Records, also the home of Fugazi) doesn't give the best indication of their sound, since the group embraced pop influences and a skewed sense of songwriting as well. Formed in 1986, the band's initial lineup — vocalist/guitarist Craig Wedren, guitarist Chris Matthews, bassist Stuart Hill, and drummer Mike Russell — released two singles and one 1989 album (Curse, Spells, Voodoo,...
