Squirrel Bait. First song of SKAG HEAVEN LP 1987.Who knows what would have happened if Squirrel Bait had remained together after the release of their second (and last) album, Skag Heaven? Perhaps today they'd be recognized by more than the handful of indie-rock junkies who were pleasantly blind-sided by them in the mid-'80s. Fortunately for the rest of you, the band's entire recorded portfolio is available on this one magnificent CD--and it's worth a listen. These five unlikely lads from Louisville, Kentucky, codified what was great and magical about independent record making: true one-hit wonders. Peter Searcy's tortured, strained vocals spew teen angst against a rush of buzzsaw guitars and Ben Daughtrey's incredible drumming. The soaring, incendiary "Sun God" is amazing.
