Steel Pole Bathtub - Unlistenable (2002)

This album was released years after they broke up.  Apparently they submitted it to their label (Slash) and they refused to release it calling it "Unlistenable"  So this record fell victim to the post-Nirvana "lets sign as many underground bands as we possibly can" major label feeding frenzy.  Personally I like it.   It's not their most accessible album but that's what I like about it.  It's a bit more on the experimental side.  There is some good news for SPBT fans.  They recently reunited to play the Musicfest NW festival in Portland just last week.  Not sure if this was just a one time deal or not.  I would have loved to have been there.  If anyone did see it I'd love to hear how it was.
