Seething Grey - Big Table demo (1992)

I obtained this lil' guy in a big 'ol lot of demo tapes a couple years back.  Until then I was wholly unacquainted with this Highland Park, NJ trio, but nearly a quarter century after the fact Seething Grey have one more believer in their corner.  Right off the bat, mouthpiece Peter Horvath reminds me of a less raspy Peter Searcy, and furthermore, Big Table's initial three tunes suggest a punchier REM or Gin Blossoms.  The going gets more aggressive  on "Make It Go" which wouldn't sound a bit out of place on Dinosaur Jr's splendid Green Mind.  Capping things off, "All in Your Mind" is a gratifying blast of full fledged punk pop.  It turns out Seething Grey have a couple of CDs to their credit, which are available on CD Baby, iTunes and the like.

A little punchier REM or Gin Blossoms, OK, I'm in at that. As usual thanks, and I will attempt to let you and Willfully Obscure world) know what I think.

(And thanks to Zippyshare for the link that invites me to "Date a Braziiian!)

As one of the surviving members of this trio, I refuse to believe this happened "nearly a quarter century ago." Still, it's to nice to know our fan club has grown to four.

Peter the mouthpiece here. I listened to this tape recently, and I didn't even cringe...
