153 Squinting Before The Dazzle by Throneberry

Squinting Before The Dazzle

Release year
Chris Fuhrman, Joe Chiccarelli

In the 90s they drew comparisons to fellow Cincinnati residents The Afghan Whigs, but time has provided more perspective.

We haven't visited our home state of Ohio in a while, so this week we're making a trip to Cincinnati to check out Throneberry, and their 1998 album Squinting Before the Dazzle. In the 90s they drew comparisons to fellow 90s rock 'nati residents The Afghan Whigs, but time has provided more perspective on their third and final record. Are they truly a lesser imitation, or does Throneberry step out of the shadow and into their light? Tune in to find out.
