With the songs "Meantime", "Thinner Than Skin", "Louder Than
Goodbye" and "Housing Fires".
Dennis and his brother Allen have been Refrigerator since 1991.
Dennis began the Shrimper label around that time as well to
document the activity in the fertile Inland Empire region outside
of Los Angeles, and Refrigerator have been just one of the outstanding
bands that have developed (Nothing Painted Blue and the Mountain
Goats being only two of many more). Their independent attitude
remains resoundingly 'punk' even though their music is more
of an intensely personal take on 'folk rock'.
This 7" was the follow-up to their How You Continue Dreaming
LP/CD on Shrimper/Revolver, and we figured it was their best
ever at the time. In hindsight, it's just another peak on a
continual rise to glory. They just keep getting better and better,
and we're happy to have been along for the ride...
