Live Video: Swervedriver

Swervedriver, the legendary British shoegaze band from the 90’s, has, despite their tumultuous and sporadic history as a group, developed an incredibly loyal fan base of both die-hard veterans and younger listeners, which isn’t surprising given the timeless nature of their guitar-driven alt-rock sound. Swervedriver released their last full length, 99th Dream, in 1998 before beginning an almost decade long hiatus. Since then, lead singer Adam Franklin has cut off his dreads, formed a number of new bands (notably Adam Franklin and the Bolts of Melody and Toshack Highway), and luckily for us, reunited Swervedriver for the time being. Although there are currently no plans for another album, Swervedriver is back in full force, and is as heavy and affecting as ever.

Check out Swervedriver’s entire KEXP live in-studio session below, including an unreleased track “Deep Wound” and a discussion on air travel with DJ Cheryl Waters, below:
