I don't think I've ever posted the soundtrack from "Hype", before, and I should have, it's a good one....."Hype" was a 1996 film dealing with the early 90's grunge scene, to be honest, I think the film is a little slow (although worth seeing once), but the soundtrack is not a bad one at all, lotta good stuff on here if you are a fan of the 90's Seattle scene, GOOD LORD, that was 25 years ago? Allow me to take my ativan, or something.....
The "stars" (is that even the word?) of the era are here.....Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden......and of course, they are great, but we aren't here for stuff we can here every night, there are other gems here such as Gas Huffer's "Hotcakes", a live "Knot" from the underappreciated and wonderfully named 7 Year Bitch, stuff from the Fastbacks, The Gits, Tad, Some Velvet Sidewalk, and plenty more obscure stuff to make you go "Wow man"......i recommend this, highly, for fans (like me) of the too-short-lived grunge scene, which of course, melded into the stoner rock scene that I love so much........
But, I....well you know the rest, right?
These are in glorious FLAC so thusly the files are a little on the large size, you know how it is, right?
