By 1991 Unsane had perfected a unique "extreme" sound that established them as an important part of the NYC noise scene. With a couple singles and an unreleased 12" EP ("Improvised Munitions" eventually released in 2020), vocalist and guitarist Chris Spencer explains "We got offered a CBGB's show with Sonic Youth, although we were playing the graveyard slot which meant that we were to play after them. They played a crazy, super-long set and almost everyone had left as it was past 2 am, but of the 10 or 12 people still there, Gerard Cosloy from Matador [Records] had stayed. He offered us a deal that night." Decades after it's initial release, it's impossible to deny or underestimate the musical evolution of the 90's without including Unsane. Combining abrasive noise-rock with corrosive and powerful distorted vocals, furious pulsations of bass and drums, Unsane had broken down the doors of noise-rock for the 90's. Available on CD, and on vinyl for the first time since 1991.
