Exeter’s Romantic Grunge Memory

Exeter – “The Romantic”

Remember 90’s “alternative” rock radio? That last gasp when anyone cared about commercial rock radio at all? The saga of Nirvana’s great triumph and heartbreaking demise? The flood of soundalikes whose metal 80’s glam hair had barely been swept off the barbershop floor as they tried to jump on the careening, burning bandwagon? That might not sound like much of an endorsement, but in fact, some of those bands had some really fine moments. Here is a song that seems to take that troubled yet exciting era of dashed ideals and nauseating saturation airplay, and reprise some of its saving graces. I like this, I really do.
