Anxious Poets - Tunes for the Fire Chief (1992)

Anxious Poets - Tunes for the Fire Chief

Anxious Poets - Tunes for the Fire Chief-2
We clearly remember an early article about Lorrie Matheson and the Anxious Poets, in which Lorrie professed to be more interested in quality than quantity when it came to songwriting. But the Poets also put on a pretty good live show (we already told our story about Lorrie throwing his guitar into the audience after playing a Pixies cover - perhaps as an act of penitence?)

Which is all fine and good, but what we want to know is this: why did so many lead guitarists in the early 90's use so much wah-pedal? The over-use of the wickywackywickywacky sound on this is regrettable.

Six songs good!
