Meeting Marisa - Meeting Marisa (1994)
It's the end of an era at Recordland, as we discovered a few weeks ago. As Eraz Cohen tidies things up, the old is making way for the new. More specifically, most of the tapes are gone as he makes room for (!gasp!) new records (!gasp!).
It kind of sucks for folks like us at the CCPS, but we'd mostly picked through the tapes over the past few years. There wasn't much left. Or so we thought. Last time we were in, Eraz gave us this tape, which features another telling band photo. Look at the boots-work socks-cut off shorts combination! Seattle, here we come! Yep, here's another slice of early-90's alt.rock. We're not saying that this genre is bad, it's just that it was so ubiquitous in the early 90's, it's kind of left us meh about the whole thing.
But maybe we're just jealous because we never grew our hair out.
