7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 10th November 2014
“The Broken Down Comforter Collection” was released in 1999, on year before their breakthrough “Sophtware Slump” album and two years after “Under The Great Western Freeway”. I was a compilation made up of EPs that were recorded between 1994-1999.
There are songs that are typical of Grandaddy such as “Wretched Songs” which lollops along with proggy synth sounds and Jason Lyttle’s familiar falsetto gliding over the top and “For The Dishwahser” which is a standout track in this collection.
“Kim You Bore Me To Death” is one of the earliest recordings on here and has a Kim Deal-style bass line hanging loose throughout the song. As far as I know it is not about Kim Deal, because that would be wrong. “Taster” also from 1994 is Breeders influenced too, this is clearly a road they were driving down before properly finding their own feet with songs Like “AM 180” and “Summer Here Kids”
As an album it’s patchy and not as good as the two studio albums released either side of it, but it’s still essential stuff for any self-respecting Grandaddy Fan.
