Last Exit To Garageland - Flying Out

GARAGELAND

Last Exit To Garageland

Flying Nun Records

$11.95

Garageland's debut, Last Exit To Garageland, was released in 1996 and sailed to #3 on the New Zealand charts on the strength of the garage-styled rocker "Fingerpops" and the hypnotic pop melody of "Beelines To Heaven."

However one wants to consider it, Last Exit is pretty darn brilliant, an enthusiastic, sharp collection of punk/pop indie songs that find their own approach. At the time, comparisons flew thick and fast to such similarly minded bands as the Pixies and the Poster Children, but Garageland share an aesthetic rather than cloning anyone. It doesn't hurt that Jeremy Eade has a great singing voice and is able to kick up some high-volume delivery here and there (without sounding like, say, Black Francis) but is also just fine at calmer singing. The grand "Fingerpops" and "Come Back," both singles and both among the band's absolute best songs, capture both sides of his abilities, not to mention Garageland's collective skill at raising holy hell on the one hand and quietly skipping along on the other. 4/5 Stars - All Music Guide
