Released: Mar 1995
Label: Geffen Catalog Transfer
Ex-Suede members Justine Frischmann and Justin Welch, alongside guitarist/vocalist Donna Matthews and bassist Annie Holland, made a splash as Elastica in 1995 with the release of their self-titled debut, a snappy, sleek set of Wire-inspired post-punk warmed by Frischmann's suggestive sneer. The punchy "Connection" became a hit on alternative radio, but what makes this album flow is its brevity -- quick, hard-hitting rockers surround fleshier numbers like "S.O.F.T." and Beatlesesque cuts like "Indian Song." Fun fact: It's rumored "Stutter" is about Damon Albarn. (Boys, don't drink too much.)
