Superchunk - The First Part. Merge Records on Youtube. Опубликовано: 23 сент. 2011 г. Official music video, taken from the album Foolish, newly remastered on Merge Records.
Superchunk is an American indie rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States, consisting of singer-guitarist Mac McCaughan, guitarist Jim Wilbur, bassist Laura Ballance, and drummer Jon Wurster. Formed in 1989, they were one of the bands that helped define the Chapel Hill music scene of the 1990s. Their energetic, high-velocity style and do-it-yourself ethics were influenced by punk rock.
The arguments for Superchunk ’s place in music’s pantheon sound like backhanded compliments: They are heralded for their longevity and consistency, their indie-label trailblazing and standard-bearing, and their general amiability, while their unfuckwithable batting average for delivering perfectly coiled guitar anthems is somehow an afterthought. At the peak of their initial run, they were routinely overshadowed by bands who thought they were successfully navigating the post- Nevermind boom only to wind up with a fraction of the cultural footprint. What a Time as a whole is faster and feistier than any Superchunk album in 25 years but the band acts its age. The furiousness sounds earned and in context, and if any of the racket reminds you of listening to 1991’s No Pocky for Kitty in college, that’s great, it’s just beside the point.
Superchunk is Superchunk's first studio album. It was recorded January 18–19, 1990, at Duck Kee Studios in Raleigh, North Carolina, and released on Matador Records in 1990. Slack Motherfucker" was named the 19th best single of the 1990s by Spin magazine, and the 81st best song of the 1990s by Pitchfork Media. B-Sides include "What Do I", "Train From Kansas City", "Night Creatures" and "Garlic".
Superchunk have long churned out non-album singles, b-sides, EPs and comp tracks, and thus have three different compilations of non-album material: 1991’s Tossing Seeds (Singles 89-91) (which features their two great Sebadoh covers), 1995’s Incidental Music (1991-95), and 2003’s Cup of Sand. 11. Superchunk (1990) This first album is the sound of a band that doesn’t quite know who they are yet. Barely a half-hour long, it has the speed and riffs you associate with early Superchunk, but the songcraft isn’t quite there. It does feature their first legitimate anthem, Slack Motherfucker, which is still one of the band’s most popular songs, but it’s pretty easy to overlook this debut in favor of the pop greatness that followed.

Superchunk have always been that strange middle between hit pieces and cult classics, where all the ‘fine, but not exactly essential’ acts go. And now they are back with an album that feels not as a political protest, but more as a confused picket. Do not expect a disaster, I would say. Do not expect a masterpiece either, though. Expect a catchy tune or two and ill-informed lyricism. So in the end, while still as naïve as a protest album can be, musically it is quite possibly at the peak of Superchunk’s nowadays performance. And given other older bands that decided to come together once again and celebrate the lack of celebration in light of modern day socio-political atmosphere (looking at you, Skids and Le Tigre), Superchunk aren’t the most disorganised.
