Splitting the Difference # 19 - Polvo/New Radiant Storm King (1994, Penny Farthing)
Behold, two bands that should need no introduction - at least in a perfect world that is. Chapel Hill, NC and Amherst, MA indie kids, brought together by the wise business sense of a record label in Arizona, circa 1994, arguably at the creative peak of the two conglomerations involved. As far as I know, none of the four cuts that appear hear have made it into the digital age, which is kind of hard to believe, especially from Polvo's end of the stick, but I digress. You can relive the excitement of the first Polvo ep that I posted in December here, not to mention one of New Radiant Storm King's more stirring albums over this way. Enjoy.
