Tsunami's first two albums, Deep End and The Heart's Tremolo rather incessantly during my college years in the mid-90s, I gave short shift to their 1997 parting shot, Brilliant Mistake, if anything else due to it's lack of immediacy. After giving this 7" an overdue spin this week, I'm encouraged to reevaluate that record. While the a-side "Poodle" was culled from the album (and one of it's stronger numbers from what I recall), the flip, "Old City" is exclusive to this wax, and fortunately bears the staying power and resiliency of just about any of their earlier offerings. For the uninitiated, you can learn more about the co-ed Arlington, VA quartet at Old Fart at Play blog, which includes a thorough discography. Their back catalog is still available through Dischord, and likely through the usual array of digital retailers. BTW, does anyone have the Cow Arcade tape?
