dagobah s/t cd (1995)







hailing from cape cod, dagobah where one of the first generation of bands, along with breadwinner, cole, hurl and don caballero to play that complex and thunderously loud form of rock that had its heyday in the mid-late 90s "instrumetal" some people called it....anyways these guys dont really stand out from the pack, but they sound closer to cole on the noise spectrum than don cab which, at this point in my life, is a good thing, as ive not cared much for that band in years.............anyways this was their first and to my knowledge, only full length...they had an ep after this, but that record was a mere shadow of this one in terms of  song quality....oh and the song "55378008(life)" reminds me a hell of alot of craw...same riffage, same kind of weird lyrical content, oly they seem to be more obsessed with sailboats than paranormal shit..........

  3. Dagobah was a pretty remarkable band especially considering they were 15 and 16 years old when they started out, on Cape Cod of all places. Paul Joyce was arguably the leader of the band, playing bass and composing songs filled with a combination of odd time signatures and lots of angst. "Ryan Link" is a forgotten gem from early cassette demos.
