T Tauri

T Tauri
Sequence (off Ending Deconstruction, GSL/Stickfigure, 1997)

No one ever mentions T Tauri, and I think that's because no one bloody knows them. They released an incredibly atypical record on GSL in 1997, atypical because at the time kids got really into spazzy-emo, not dark and atmospheric emo that was still rather nerdy and weird.

I used to work in a little record-shop in Vienna, and we always got big boxes from Bottlenekk, a distro run by Sonny from GSL. He'd always put records in there that he kinda thought we would be into (they always got it right), and one day there was a promo-version of T Tauri's Ending Deconstruction LP. I immediately took it home and was blown away by it. For some reason it spoke to me, and it helped me get through confusing times. The Unwound-influence is fairly obvious, but T Tauri were a bit more depressed, there was more angst to it.

Anyway. I still return to this record from time to time, and today I thought I better introduce them to senfedge. Spread the word about this band, even though it's a bit too late now. One of them is in Black Dice now. T Tauri are also on myspace. Oh, and you can hear another song from their LP here.
