Singles Going Single #15 - The Deflowers (Platypus, 1995)
Yet another band that I probably wouldn't have been exposed to had I not spun rekids at my college radio station. The Seattle based Deflowers' debut album, Shiny New Pony, fell into my lap right around the time this 7" was minted. The recording credits, going to none other than Kurt Bloch (Fastbacks!) should be a pretty obvious clue that these guys rawk! It's all here - vigorous punk-pop, slashing power chords, solid melodies... These three taut numbers belie a raw, raucous underbelly, and boy is it fun!
The Delowers give us a choice Lemonheads cover here, namely the relatively obscure "Uhhh," which appeared on the 'heads debut, Hate Your Friends.
