Wino - S/T (1998) & Singles

Wino were a overlooked noise-rock band from Louisville.  Not to be confused with the metal dude Wino (Saint Vitus, Hidden Hand).  Wino seemed to get a little lost amongst their more artsy peers (The For Carnation, June of 44 etc) within the Louisville scene.  They have some really crushing noise-rock songs (Yam Hand), some just plain weird songs (Eon) and everything in between.  You never really know what you're going to get from one song to the next.  I've also included a couple of their singles which were super limited and are long out of print.

  1. A criminally-overlooked band. Wino were incredible. Go get their compilation "A Bottle of Pills and a Bullet Chaser" immediately. Somewhere between the Swans and Joy Division was Wino. They peeled paint off the wall of nearly every gym, club, and no-name dive in Louisville (and a few in Chicago as well) before imploding in 1999.
