Pond: Pond (Sub Pop)

Jason Cohen, Creem, March 1993

THOUGH IT DOES hail from the Northwestern part of the United States, Pond is not hairy, metallic, or from Seattle. Instead, clean-shaven guitarist/vocalist Charlie Campbell wears a floppy crown over his buzz cut, writes pummeling pop songs, and comes from Portland, Oregon, by way of Alaska.
