GUS – Less Than / Her Backyard 7”

Dirge Records – Pompano Beach (1994)

Drew – guitar, vocals
Ron – bass
Craig – drums

Trio falls somewhere between Naked Raygun and Gainesville’s Doldrums musically. Not a bad place to be. Lyrically they’re at least as earnest and serious as the Doldrums, more so than NR. Both songs are excellent – “Less Than” is especially powerful. This is their first single, with a demo tape that was semi-distributed prior to this. Record’s sleeve is printed on recycled paper with soy-based ink and depicts an oppressed species. Thankfully, my copy has not biodegraded yet.
