Polvo - Fractured (Like Chandeliers)

Next to the hot air blower of Kevin Shields, the single most immediately recognisable guitar sound of the 1990s might be those of Ash Bowie and Dave Brylawski, the two guitarists in Polvo. They sounded like a cassette tape being chewed up, spooling out in all directions. The band were of the crucial early post-rock outfits, and certainly the one who most sounded like Thurston Moore. Fractured (Like Chandeliers) is from the EP Celebrate the New Dark Age (1994), and while it's structurally quite conventional for Polvo, it really shows those guitars off well.
