This is the music that means the most to me. It speaks to me about how fucked up things are, I feel my heading nodding, to a deep sense of satisfaction, to the validation provided by the pulsed and fuzzed college rock sound. There’s a slot in the world’s biggest music library, in a section for the early 1990s, that’s lain empty for 20 years. Its lain empty for Bohica’s grunge fusion. Their guitars roll, they grandstand and buzz like Sugar, like Sugar and Bob Mould, they cry out like the Pixies. Lyrically they’re somewhere between Dig and Swervedriver. What the fuck are these four post-pubescents doing in the early 1990s!? They’re there because the grunge alt rock of that period was the most meaningful music ever made, it spoke of human drudgery, of the shitness of life, but it felt cool to be aware, it was a true friend. Did you know Swervedriver are touring again? Digging up the best and worst from twenty years ago, its time to go into therapy.
