Love Battery

The story goes that Love Battery never really fit in with the grunge-era Seattle scene: that their psych-garage rock was too colorful, too Dayglo if you will, for the drab alternative times. I don't know about that, but it does make them a weird candidate for a revival right now, when what's being drawn from the '90s by young bands is the most explicitly grunge-y stuff possible (see: Broken Water's Sonic Youth-echoing Tempest, or Gun Outfit and Milk Music's Dinosaur Jr. riffing). Still, Love Battery are apparently back and playing the Lo-Fi for Atomic Brides' Dead Air record release party. With support from sunny indie poppers Summer Babes. ERIC GRANDY
