Next month marks the 10 year anniversary of the break up of one of my favorite 90’s Indie rock bands Polvo. So I say we celebrate their 8 years of tearing apart my ears. via souther records “Polvo like Kung Fu movies and they like to play nicely out of tune….”
Polvo thrived in a period when I believe some of the best Indie Rock was created. Melding together angular post-punk songs with hints of Asian and Middle Eastern culture, they crafted a truly unique sound. One of the signatures of their sound was the odd tunings that they incorporated (who the hell uses GGCCCE ?). Polvo exsisted from 1990-1998 giving us 4 full lengths and 3 Eps in that time.
