Bulldozer Crash - Today Will Be Yesterday So Soon: 1991 - 1993
Once upon a time (way back in the ancient early-'90s) there was a British band with the delightful name Bulldozer Crash. They played indie pop of the C86 and '90s Britpop variety, and they played it very well. And that is relevant because Chris, the head of Seattle's Jigsaw records -- a man possessed of excellent musical taste (which is the same thing as musical taste that reflects mine) -- compiled a 19-track retrospective collecting just about everything worth having from a productive period for Bulldozer Crash. The album, titled Today Will Be Yesterday So Soon: 1991 - 1993, was released in October 2012. If you are as fond of this genre as I am, you will be (1) highly impressed with the quality of the songs, and (2) dismayed at the band's lack of fame. I've picked out a three-song set for you (tracks 3-5 of the album) plus one from later in the album to show you the quality. You can stream the entire album at the Bandcamp link below. By the way, it is available as a physical CD and digital download, and the digital is only $7.
The primary members of Bulldozer Crash were Stephen Maughan and Marc Elston. Marc also was in Liberty Ship. Maughan was in Kosmonaut and heads a fanzine and CD-R label named This Almighty Pop!
