Label: Round Hill Music
Who knew that in 2017 I would writing about Bush’s sophomore effort Razorblade Suitcase?
It’s been 20 years since the album came out, I know right?, and they did the deluxe reissue thing in December on CD and digital. The vinyl is out today! And it has bonus tracks. Most of which were B-sides but wikipedia says that Sleeper hasn’t had a proper release before.
Limited edition colored 180gm double vinyl LP housed in a gatefold sleeve, includes four bonus tracks. Led by guitarist/vocalist Gavin Rossdale, Bush became the first post-Nirvana British band to hit it big in America. Of course, they became a hit by playing by the grunge rules i.e. loud guitars, guttural vocals, stop-start rhythms, and extreme dynamics. Formed in late 1992 by Rossdale, Bush even managed to land an American record deal before they had a British label. The band followed up the breakout success of their 1994 debut Sixteen Stone and it's hit singles "Everything Zen," "Little Things," "Comedown" and "Glycerine" with Razorblade Suitcase in 1996. Produced by Steve Albini, notorious for his abrasive productions for Pixies, Nirvana, and PJ Harvey, the album entered the U.S. charts at No. 1 on the strength of the hit single "Swallowed" and eventually went double platinum.
