Mount Shasta – “Put The Creep On” – [Skin Graft Records]
debut 1994 full-length from one of Skin Graft’s mainstays of the Chicago thrash and grime scene. recorded around 4AM over plenty of cigarettes and booze i’m sure, noise rock for lack of a better term, but bluesy and straight ahead rockin, just of the trashy rotten variety. sewer rock with all the sludge and slop but the angular mathiness that gives it its signature Skin Graft sound. Seattle may have had the grunge but Chicago got the grime.
