pete: before there was pearl jam there was dust bin

jumping off of jay’s music post of a few days ago, i couldnt help but share this picture with him.

finsbury park, england. 1992. 
the british equivalent of the legendary lallapalooza festival…

where a bunch of nobodys named pearl jam were one of the opening acts for MY favorite band – british indie rockers ned’s atomic dustbin – who most people have forgotten, if they’d ever even heard of them at all.  in all fairness, they are quite brilliant and much better than pearl jam (then again, so are the mega city 4, spiritualized, L7, and pj harvey).  i suggest you check them out if you’ve never had a listen, there are plenty of videos on youtube.
