Under The Western Freeway was the debut album by Grandaddy. Now, to coincide with the 20th anniversary of its release it gets a double LP reboot featuring some extra tracks in the form of previously unreleased demos that fans of the band will relish. It is arguably the band’s finest work and features such classics as AM 180, Summer Here Kids and Everything Beautiful Is Far Away.
A simple idea that is done far too little. With a self professed amateur heading up some pro players, this little four-piece from Georgia take scuzzy, aggressive, single gear punk rock and pump it full of catchy as hell melodies and playful pop happiness. “Joy rock” they call it. Bob on, I say. Debut album on Friendship Fever.
