Died Pretty - Every Brillant Eye

My love for this band continues, the band decides to record for the first time without Radio Birdman's Rob Younger. Instead, they enlist Jeff Eyrich (Gun Club, The Plimsouls) and the result is 1990's Every Brilliant Eye. Recorded in LA, the album sees the addition of keyboardist, John Hoey, and bass player, Steve Clark. A leaner, rockier approach is adopted. The album reaches top 10 on US college charts and the press positively gleams. Even the New York Times discovers the band, gushing 'the best rock and roll has passion and Died Pretty is consumed by it. They don't so much articulate feelings as evoke them'.
