archers of loaf Seconds Before the Accident (CD, £11.95)label: alias
Recorded live in 1998 at the regionally famous cat's cradle in chapel hill, NC, seconds before the accident was released two years later, after Archers of loaf disbanded. The set list is heavy on material from the band's amazing debut, icky mettle, and burns with a noise rock intensity that is more reminiscent of the group's early recordings than later works like white trash heroes. Fans of indie rock icons Pavement and Guided by voices who haven't yet heard Archers of loaf wouldn't be disappointed if they started their Archers collection with seconds before the accident.
