#4 in the “Bands I Miss Most from the 90s”
While all you neu-shoegazers were still wearing Garanimals, I was scooping up Skywave seven inches without reading the price tag. Ackerman went on to help form A Place to Bury Strangers, which is alright, I guess, but Skywave had the songs. “Don’t Say Slow” is not at all Skywave’s only high point. Good luck finding their output – all of it was self-released, I believe — unless you live in the Fredericksburg, Va area, where they were based and didn’t seem to care to leave much.
I miss these guys mostly because I can’t play it around the kids or they get angry.
