Album Info

I was pretty jazzed to stumble on this album a few months ago for a couple of reasons.  First, Jamie Hoover from power pop demigods the Spongetones produced about half of this disk, and secondly Eight or Nine Feet hailed from the very fertile North Carolina indie rock scene of their era, that being the late '80s.  On many levels, Resolution didn't disappoint, but when the rubber met the road I realized my expectations were a bit high.  A Raleigh-based quartet, Eight of Nine Feet were too linear to be lumped in with the “New SouthвЂ� crop, rather they tilted vaguely in the direction of the Connells and Miracle Legion. At their most inviting, “Keep Your Eyes PeeledвЂ� plays like the second cousin to REM’s “Harborcoat,вЂ� but even that selection didn't quite bear the edginess I had been holding out for on the album as a whole.  The swift and twangy as-all-get-out hoedown, “Lake TahoeвЂ� closes Resolution out on a decidedly different tip than it’s ten preceding cuts.

As often is the case, Trouser Press has their say on this artifact, and reveals that the band had a tape out prior to this wax dubbed Flint, which I would imagine is pretty impossible to come by at this stage in the game.  As a side note, guitarist Bo Taylor parlayed his talents to a pair of regional outfits in the early '90s, and Motocaster, who I've delved into previously on these pages, to one extent or another.
