Beat Happening: Black Candy (Sub Pop)

Ian Christe, Alternative Press, April 1993

THIS 1989 RELEASE more than adequately summarizes the appeal of this maudlin trio of Treeville, Washington, based anti-rockers. Captured at a time when the band was instinctively capable of both amateurish flubs and confident simplicity, Black Candy runs a relatively dynamic emotional and musical range.
