Something Vicious For Tomorrow / Timewhore

by Treepeople

Before BUILT TO SPILL Doug Martsch was in the now-legendary Treepeople. A melodic cross between punk, grunge and pop highlighted by Martsch and Scott Schmaljohn's guitar interplay, the Treepeople's sound was never really altered.span>

Album Notes
Upon the breakup of the Boise, ID, punk band State of Confusion, several members elected to head west to the thriving then-underground scene in Seattle, and so guitarist/vocalist Doug Martsch, guitarist/vocalist Scott Schmaljohn, bassist Pat Brown, and drummer Wayne Rhino Flower became Treepeople. An often melodic cross between punk and grunge highlighted by Martsch and Schmaljohn's guitar interplay, Treepeople's sound was never really altered to fit the post-Nirvana Seattle formula, and perhaps consequently, the group never attracted as much attention outside the local scene as many of its contemporaries. The group debuted on the Toxic Shock label in 1989 with Guilt Regret Embarrassment, switching to C/Z for Something Vicious for Tomorrow, which did not appear until 1992 but also included the out of print EP Time Whore. By this time, Tony Dallas Reed had taken over the drum seat; for the next album, 1993's Just Kidding, Reed switched to bass (taking over for new father Brown) and Eric Akre (ex-Christ on a Crutch) took his position behind the drum set. Claiming he was tired of touring, Martsch himself then quit the band, leaving Schmaljohn as the only remaining original member; on Treepeople's final album, 1994's Actual Re-Enactment, the lineup featured Schmaljohn, Akre, guitarist John Polle, and bassist Eric Carnell. Martsch then resurfaced in Built to Spill.



to write a review


Up there with bands like Dinosaur Jr. and the Pixies
Treepeople combine great hooks and good song writing to make tremendous music. They were one of the best bands of this era, yet virtually unknown. If you are a fan of Doug's work, songs like "On a Tip" (a Halo Benders must), "Car," or the amazing "Forget Remember When" (b-side of "Carry the Zero" -- another amazing song), then you shall like this. All the people who get a chance to own or listen to this should consider themselves lucky.
