Zeke Fiddler - Hald Baked/Half Inflated
More local stuff from Northampton. Seems like Zeke Fiddler played at the Baystate Hotel a lot, but for some reason, I never did see him. (Favorite Hotel regulars: Rock Gods From Chicopee. How could they not be great?) This is the other 7" that my old housemate Steve played drums on.
Fairly standard sounding early 90's alt rock. Half Baked is a decent song, though it sounds like someone put Buffalo Tom, Dinosaur Jr and a few other bands from the era into a blender and poured this out, actually you could say that about the other songs here too. Half Inflated's mid-tempo mellowness starts to drag after a while. The whole thing ends with a short, fuzz-drenched instrumental.
A: Half Baked
