Album Review

In respect to the rest of their impressive catalog, Superchunk's debut LP is basically a ragged hint of promise from a group who would later become a fixture of indie rock. Over ten tracks of poorly recorded albeit thundering rock & roll, singer/guitarist Mac McCaughan and crew play a punk rock hybrid that leans toward the possibility of a more complicated future but never really realizes it. The record has a few winning tracks, including the opening "Sick to Move" and the indie ethos affirmation "My Noise," but in retrospect, the only really important song included on the record is the longtime Superchunk anthem "Slack M**********r." The song's call to arms of "I'm workin'/but I'm not working for you," written while McCaughan was paying his bills with work behind the counter of a local Kinkos, has forever become a part of the band's legacy and has been covered by numerous artist since appearing on this record. Superchunk completeists will probably see a need for this record in their collections, but the much more accessible Tossing Seeds: Singles 89-91 collection contains all this record's high points as well as the follow-up singles that saw the band really get moving in a more inspiring direction. ~ Peter J.

The Chunk's 7" Singles Rules the School!

This collection of Superchunk songs is as good a place to start as any in their expansive discography. In terms of singles, the anthem "Slack Motherf----r" is pop punk bliss. The song is as old as the film SLACKER and just as poignant in its subversive message. "Sick To Move" is another classic from The Chunk's early years too. Now, that you've felt the energy of their teen pop anthems, find their classic period albums "On The Mouth" and "Foolish" as fast as you can!


One of the bestbands to come from the 80's 3 cord punk rock era. If you love the violent femmes, Superchunk will blow you away. Smart lyrics with hard cords.

Formed: 1989 in Chapel Hill, NC

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Perhaps no band was more emblematic of the true spirit of American indie rock during the 1990s than Superchunk, the pride of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Following the D.I.Y. ethic to the letter, the bandmembers operated solely by their own rules, ignoring all passing trends by sticking to their trademark sound -- typified by the buzzing guitars and high, impassioned vocals of frontman Mac McCaughan -- and rejecting all major-label advances in favor of the unlimited freedom afforded by owning their...
