Flashback Friday: Lucy’s Fur Coat


It’s been a few weeks for a flashback post, and I’ve been meaning to pull out my Lucy’s Fur Coat for some time now.

In retrospect, I’m not really sure what drew me to this San Diego group. I suppose I was coming off an early 90s grunge high, trying to keep with those thick guitars and and strained vocals. But there was some melody hidden in there, I swear.

Anyway, the band’s debut, Jaundice, is one of those I owned on cassette and then — if only for nostalgia’s sake — had to track down on CD years later (OK, so it was like, um, last year). I even have a couple of the group’s indie releases on 45.

Regardless, I like Jaundice because, even if the music hasn’t stood up for the past 10 years, it always takes me back and puts me in a different place. It’s one of those albums that I’ll likely be able to recite some of the lyrics no matter how much time passes in between listens. I think we all have some albums like that.

  1. Oh my god you rule. I’m from San Diego and used to see LFC play all the time. Funnily enough, my friend worked for a company where one of the guitar players was the CFO.

  2. a guilty pleasure… for shizzle… i used to love to put on the cassette and get hyped for a friday night of devious behavior and copious beer drinking…

  3. So I take it you’re a fan of Jets to Brazil? I don’t really know all that much about them, just have a few mp3’s my buddy Jae sent me a few years back.

    Good game last week, btw. Good luck this week against The Piece.

  4. Cool post. I saw them in the ATL years ago and they R-O-C-K-E-D! This has been a favorite album of mine that never got airplay, or respect for that matter.

  5. God, if that band had just gotten the right producer and kept touring they would have been huge. Oh well, we can always remeber the live shows.
