Looks Like Ya’ll Wanted Some Grunge This Weekend…

posted by on April 28 at 15:30 PM

I just got this week’s lists of the best-selling NW artists from local record stores (which I use to compile NW Top 10), and Easy Street West Seattle’s list had two random records:

Neither sold enough (if any) at other stores, so they didn’t make it on to the top 10; Fleet Foxes are still #1.

I happened to hear "the Ricker" talking about Mad Season on the radio last week.

I'm sure the other person listening to this radio genius ran out and bought that album.

A few weeks ago, I would've guessed that such an anomaly says more about depressingly low record sales across the board than the resurgent popularity of middling grunge, but what with the STP reunion, I just don't know what to think anymore.

"Dirt" isn't "middling" anything. It's a great fuckin' record. Boom.

Not that I buy physical media much anymore, but the bass on that Mad Season CD is fucking killer. Still one of my alltime fave albums.
