I never thought that a search for New York's Giant Mums would yield much on Ebay, but low and behold I found this 1991 demo tape, engineered by the one and only Wharton Tiers no less. Last October I heaped praise on their Eyedropper 7." At the time I remarked about the Mum's resemblance to Dinosaur Jr. Though you wouldn't know it from the vocals, the instrumental quotient of this trio sounds like they had been groomed on a steady diet of Green Mind prior to tracking these six songs to tape - that and maybe a little Buffalo Tom. The Mum's also released a full length in 1994 that I'm getting closer and closer to buying.
