All Time High Get High In Friends’ Places

I like Small Stone Records. A Small Stone, for the uninitiated, is an effects pedal favored by stoners in the 1970’s and ever since. It is a “phaser” and it makes whooshy whooshy tone sweeps. You control the speed. You control the depth. You say things like “whoa, dude, nice!” and your mom comes in with your report card and papers to have you committed to an institution. Most Small Stone owners had Lava Lamps. All of them had bongs. All Time High on Small Stone Record, my dears, with “Nice Guys Laugh Last”. Kinda Nirvana-ish stoner rock. It pleases me.

All Time High’s Pollyannish Grunge

All Time High – “Pollyanna” mp3

Pollyanna is I believe one of the best words in the English language. It’s a relatively new term, whose origin is simple – Pollyanna was the name of a child heroine created by American writer Eleanor Porter, who was optimistic and sweet regardless of whatever dire circumstances did beset her. Often used disparagingly, I consider it a virtue. Seattle’s All Time High has a thing or two to sing about the matter, in classic Seattle grunge rock style, in this wonderful bit of rock and roll philosiphizin’. Everything is gr8! Really.
