18th Dye

Happy New Years everyone!! Here’s hoping that 2007 is a good year for everyone.

The group 18th Dye may have been European (Berlin, Germany), but their sound was distinctly American. The group was signed to Matador Records on the recommendation of indie music darlings Yo La Tengo .

Comprised of German singer/guitarist Sebastian Büttrich, Danish drummer Piet Bendtsen, and Danish-German singer/bassist Heike Rädeker and aided by producer Iain Burgess on their 1994 debut “Done”;and by Steve Albini on 1995’s “Tribute to a Bus” they melded the sonic assault of Nirvana, the Pixies, and Sonic Youth with pop melodicism.

After three farewell concerts in 1999 the group broke up thought they’ve played the occasional concert, and are supposedly working on a new album.
