For all those big-hearted, reverb-heavy rock fans out there: If you've been listening to Dinosaur Jr., Hum, and The Pixies all your life but never once caught an earful of the English band Swervedriver, well, 2009 might just be a great year after all. After two decades of limited success and horrendously bad luck (they were dropped by their record label just weeks after releasing an album TWICE!) and a 10 year hiatus, Swervedriver is back together performing live dates and days away from seeing the US rerelease of their first two albums Raise and Mezcal Head. Both albums are available on Hi-Speed Soul Records where you can also find a nifty little tour viny 7" to the Ejector Seat Reservation single "Just Sometimes." Just saying.
"Last Train to Satansville" from Mezcal Head
"Just Sometimes" from Ejector Seat Reservation
You can find an interview with frontman Adam Franklin at Brooklyn Vegan.
