Buffalo Tom

Iconic Boston indie stalwarts Buffalo Tom quietly affected the alternative movement forever with their seminal full-length debut, Buffalo Tom. Originally released in 1988, it represented the spirit of the pre-grunge scene on the East Coast. Beyond highlights such as “Sunflower Suit” and “Deep In The Ground,” legendary Dinosaur JR. singer, guitarist, and founder J Mascis rips a lead on “Impossible” and contributed production. The Limited-Edition physical release touts rare photos from the band’s early years, heavyweight clear vinyl, and a 12” poster of the new cover art designed by original artists Jason Talerman and Bob Hamilton. Among many retrospective tributes, Brooklyn Vegan hailed their “raging, fuzzy and deafeningly loud guitar attack.”
