It�s always disappointing for fans when one of their favourite groups parts ways. In the case of California�s The Lassie Foundation, fans have had to endure a break up twice. Initially, The Lassie Foundation disbanded after the release of El Dorado, a full-length CD. However, rumours of a reunion swirled on message boards, finally confirmed by the band with their fall 2004 full-length release, the highly acclaimed Face Your Fun. Fans patiently waited over a year for the next Lassie release, just content to know that the band was active and writing songs. Then, out of seemingly nowhere, the band again announced to fans that it was no more. But, instead of leaving fans hanging in the glow of their anti-climactic wait, the band has just released, as a farewell to fans, a spectacular two-disc set called Through and Through. Named after a song on El Dorado, Through and Through not only features two out of print releases from The Lassie Foundation (the gloriously messy shoegaze-pop of California and the bubblegum fuzz-pop of Pacifico), but the release also collects demos, unreleased and live tracks from all eras of the band�s history. Taken as a unit by itself, Through and Through chronicles the development of a fantastic and truly underrated band. And taken in the context of the farewell for fans it intends to be, Through and Through ia a thoughtful and sentimental present for long-time fans who�ve followed the band through its decade of existence. -Brent (Somewhere Cold)
