Misfit Heartbeat double 7" compilation they contributed to, circa the early/mid-90s. Playground's formula was linear and lean roaring guitar rock, set to a reliable mid-tempo pace. Aficionados of the Boston's Moving Targets will discover some more than striking similarities on Bent, Lost or Broken, but given Playground's locale of a modest town in northern California, something a little more obvious likely rubbed off on them, say like Husker Du or Sugar. There's definitely some Mould-ian sensibilities running through these eleven tracks, but nothing too overt to signal any wholesale derivativeness. Playground had at least two singles that I know of, which will likely be the subject of a forthcoming post. Until then, enjoy (or not).

always dug this cd and tried to find more music/info on this band over the years, but only have the misfit heartbeat comp. looking forward to more music from them. the last song on this album is my fave.
I dj at KDVS in davis. I'm sure we have loads of their stuff, and I know a person to ask or two if you're curious about the band as well.
Thanks folks. I'd love to hear what you can find Ginger. I'll be uploading some P/G singles soon.
i know there was a demo tape out there from these guys as well.
