Love Battery - Foot

Three in a row. Got to mix these up a bit. Another Sub Pop Singles Club pick, from November '91.

Love Battery was a  psychedelia meets garage-rock/grunge act out of Seattle. Well known out there, not so much out here. They had a constantly revolving lineup, with people continually leaving for bigger and better things (Mudhoney, Presidents of the USA) and eventually coming back to do gigs with them later when their replacements moved on too.

"Foot" is a rockin' tune, and you can see where they got the whole psychedelic label from with the wah pedal that kicks in about 2/3 of the way through the song.

The B-side pays homage to their 60's influences and is a solid cover of Buffalo Springfield's "Mr. Soul".

A: Foot
B: Mr. Soul
