that dog. formed in LA in 1991; their debut album was released on the famed DCG label in 1994, home to Beck, Weezer, Hole, Elastica, and more in the early 90’s.  The album’s DIY, lo-fi, scrappy guitar sounds mixed with violin and buoyant all-female harmonies instantly announced the arrival of a supremely special, unlike-anyone-else new band to the Los Angeles rock scene.  The self-titled album’s magic was a precursor of things to come on the band’s celebrated, critically-lauded next albums Totally Crushed Out (1995) and Retreat From The Sun (1997).
