Emergency & I

Label
Barsuk Records
Release year
1999
Producer
Chad Clark, J. Robbins

It combines a whole bunch of alternative rock royalty, like the Pixies, Pavement, Talking Heads and Gang of Four just to name a few.

To wrap up our Fall of New Releases by 90s Bands schedule, we revisit the 1999 album Emergency & I by Dismemberment Plan, who recently reunited to release the new album Uncanney Valley out this week. Emergency & I combines a whole bunch of alternative rock royalty, like the Pixies, Pavement, Talking Heads and Gang of Four just to name a few, and produces a wholly individual sound. One of us is on board the D-Plan's ride, the other wants to get off after just a few stops. Yes, it's disagreement time!
