The 90's were the beginning of the indie record glut, supposedly, with tons of bands being able to pile up 5 or 6 releases and build a name for themselves without even being all that great. Far to the other end of that spectrum is Million Sellers, who released a handful of some of the greatest songs ever written on two measly 7"-ers and then pretty much sank out of sight.
If there's a formula to a Million Sellers song, it's a pretty simple one: a catchy hook you couldn't possibly forget, with lyrics so sharp they make your head hurt. Like I said before, think Chilton and Westerberg at their finest, with some Buddy Holly thrown in to keep things basic. I posted the second Million Sellers EP back in October; now here's the b-side to the first EP, plus one other song ("Marilyn", from "You Can't Spell Abandonment Without A Band") that I'm adding because I like it a whole lot, though I'm posting it as a low bit rate listen-only file because Kels deserves to sell some songs eventually.
