Urge Overkill - Sister Havana
Also, spent a few minutes in Northampton and Amherst today, and noticed that pretty much all of the record stores where I bought these things no longer exist. Oh well.
UO's first major label single. I think I was hoping it would be as interesting as their Sub Pop one, but that was not to be. It's two years later, and they continue to chase that bombastic arena-rock thing, (as well as mega-stardom) like on the other single, but lost the noise-rock influence by this point. They're left with this bombastic mellow-ness, which might as well be Journey, or some shit like that. There's a ray of hope on the B-side though.
I'm amazed that this single charted in the top 10, and never even realized that until now.
A: Sister Havana
B: Woman 2 Woman
