1. Product Details

On May 27th 1998 Sonic Youth played at The Fillmore in San Francisco. As usual their choice of opening acts showed love for the local scene. Recent Matador signings Fuck took the middle slot but the real coup of the evening was the opening act. This was the first time anyone had seen rRope on a stage this big. While their larger than life sound could be threatening in a small DIY venue here they were transcendent. rRope never relied on blown out amps or distortion pedals that mangled their guitars into oblivion. Known for building their own amps based on old tube schematics their guitars were meant to soar from one dimension temporarily into ours and then into another beyond imagining. When their rhythms would burst into neutrino fast intricacies this was the sound of string theory manifested right before you not a simple-minded blast of anger. At small warehouses these sounds would bounce around the room for better or worse. But on that night they were truly free. This was rRope in their true element and it was their night. Rumors began that Sonic Youth had invited them to tour together. Years of hard dues seemed to have paid off. Needless to say it was exciting. This would also be rRopes last show. The bay area is well known for its musical innovation and the 90s were a golden era. From Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 to A Minor Forest from Caroliner to Henrys Dress and the growing drum and bass scene being different was more than okay. It was embraced. Still for some of us rRope were the ones. Comparisons to the equally smart and dreamy My Bloody Valentine werent wrong just misleading. This band was just too heavy. Their singer having moved to the bay from Colorado had a cowboys heart and even a bit of twang in his delivery. Would Touch n Go take notice Or was there too much bliss in their hooks The recognition of a band like Sonic Youth that had not only blazed their own trail but had won the hearts of so many doing it was an amazing omen. Especially in these pre-internet world where word of mouth mattered more than ever.
