Nuisance - Confusion Hill LP
I'm always looking to go back through the 90's to check out bands that either didn't do it for me at the time or that I just completely missed for one reason or another. Nuisance definitely falls into the latter category. Aside from vague memories of seeing their name in Lookout catalogs, I never had the records or even knew anyone who recommended them at the time.
It's probably for the best, I don't think I would have liked this as much when I was 20 as I do now. Not saying this record is a slam dunk. There's a sludgy stoner vibe throughout the record that's not usually my cup of tea, but when the band stumbles onto a hook, they really make the most of it. I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for their other album, Sunny Side Down, which from what I am reading is a bit poppier than Confusion Hill. Maybe what I'm reading is wrong, but time will tell.
Also, I'm a little bummed that this record's cover has the corner cut off. that wasn't mentioned in the description when I bought it. Not the end of the world, but I may need to replace the cover of this guy if I can find one at a good price.
