Edsel in the '90s

As you may remember, much-loved and underrated '90s indie rock outfit Lotion are playing on Saturday (10/6) at Mercury Lounge with fellow Clinton-era group Edsel for whom this will be their first show in 12 years. It's a late show (doors 10:30) tickets are still available.

Despite what sounds like a fun late night reunion party, both groups have signed on for an afternoon show the next day (10/7) at The Rock Shop. Show is at 1 PM and tickets are on sale.

Meanwhile, the last of Edsel's albums was just reissued via Comedy Minus One. That would be their 1995 album, Techniques of Speed Hypnosis, that the band recorded in Liverpool with Anjali Dutt and Andy Wilkinson whose noisy pedigree included Swervedriver, The Boo Radleys and My Bloody Valentine. Vocalist Sohrab Habbibion (now of Obits) offers up an entertaining recollection of making the album over at the CM1 site, which included spending a lot of time in the recording studio hangout room playing pool with Ian McCulloch. You can stream "Suits Me Fine" from the reissue below.
