The Edsel Auctioneer – Gutted E.P.


From 1990 and Grunge had passed me by but coming across this E.P. from Leeds quartet , The Edsel Auctioneer, makes me want to revaluate the genre. All fuzz and raw power, this is a good introduction to the band and was their second release. Comparisons with Ride, Dinosaur JR., My Bloody Valentine and The Lemonheads are all valid. Engineered by Iain Burgess from the 80’s Chicago punk scene (Big Black et al) they were championed by John Peel but never really made it big. My favourite off the E.P. is the soaring, guitar epic,  “Bed Table, Chair”
