Junket - S.F. Claremont Hi (1996, RoadCone)

The San Francisco based Junket emerged from the early 90s scene associated with the Shrimper label along with bands like Refrigerator, Nothing Painted Blue, Franklin Bruno, and The Mountain Goats. The band existed from 1991-1993, and this collection of their entire recorded output was released posthumously on the Portland, Oregon label Roadcone records. Junket's sound had a lot in common with 90s indie heavyweights Pavement and Sebadoh, but often borders on the slower style of Seam or Bedhead. On a side note: apologies for the long absence from posting, hopefully there will be less of a gap between posts in the future.
