10/10 Penrith Steve 19th January 2015
'Bee Thousand' is a cornerstone of American alternative music and an absolute triumph for lo-fi recording. It’s up there with Pavement’s “Slanted & Enchanted” and “Sebadoh III”. Simply put – it’s essential. Originally released in 1994, it was the first of a run of incredible albums that included “Alien Lanes” and “Under the Bushes, Under the Stars”. “Bee Thousand” contains the classics “Echoes Myron”, “Tractor Rape Chain”, “Hot Freaks” and “I am a Scientist”. It’s melodic, scruffy, off-kilter and perfect.
