Released:
Label: Hip-O Select/Mercury
Like Cheap Trick, Material Issue hailed from the Windy City, and also like Robin, Rick, Tom and Bun E., the trio blurred the lines between power pop, classic rock and new wave. Case in point: International Pop Overthrow, Material Issue's wonderfully catchy debut, would've been a Shindig! fave in the mid '60s, but when released in 1991, the lead single "Valerie Loves Me" became an alternative smash on 120 Minutes. The band would be searching for that next hit the rest of its career.
