Here's another post that ties in with the last one, only this time I have a more nostalgic connection to this record, as I loved it way back when and have recently rediscovered it, so to speak. I actually first heard the single and leadoff track from this record as part of the Pet Sematary II soundtrack, a pretty rotten (but kind of a guilty pleasure) flick with several alternative/shoegaze/etc. songs backing it. I was hooked from the get-go, and also fell pretty hard for the Mary Chain's "Reverence" as well. Nothing like a 10 year old singing "I wanna die just like Jesus Christ" around the house...
Most notably, this three piece project featured guitar contributions from Michael Cozzi, who was active in Shriekback and Lively Art mainstay Sky Cries Mary. I believe the band was based in the US, and had a sound similar to Lush, Curve, etc. Plenty of hooks and electronically driven fuzzed out bliss to be had here throughout the entire LP, which was released in 1992. Here's the details:
Lulabox- Lulabox CD 1. Ride On 2. Love Street 3. I Believe 4. Ivory Hill 5. Prayer For Rain 6. Choked 7. Wild Cherry Bark 8. Giving It All Away 9. Precious Thing 10. Ava 11. Ride On (Velocity Mix) 12. I Believe (Below The Belt Mix)
The band seemed to have some major promotion behind them, as three videos exist for this album. You can click the embedded link for "Ride On," the song that started my adolescent obsession with this LP. You can also catch the video for "Choke" here and "I Believe" here .
