International Pop Underground Convention Compilation (KLP011)
A live compilation documenting the International Pop Underground Convention held in Olympia, Wash., August, 1991. Many of these recordings were made throughout the week at the Capitol Theater, which also housed the Yo-Yo Studios at the time. Additional material was recorded at the North Shore Surf Club and Capital Lake Park. Some of these artists were already veterans (Fugazi, Beat Happening, Mecca Normal, Pastels, Melvins) while others are captured at their most nascent (Spinnanes, Ice Cream Truck, Kreviss). An invaluable collection of artists at their peak, playing at their most inspired.
