Camper Van Beethoven – Key Lime Pie (1989)

December 21, 2009


Camper Van Beethoven, a California group active mainly throughout the ’80s, were one of the lesser-known forerunners of the alternative rock movement, playing a brew of punk, folk, country, world music, jangle pop, ska, psychedelia, and pretty much whatever else you can think of; this band experimented almost non-stop with their sound, and ended up far-removed from even the ‘typical’ alt rock sound of the period, which is what makes them so important, and also what makes them so criminally overlooked; this album was the last released on their original run (they’ve since reunited), and it was their most financially – if not critically – successful album, and therefore their most recognizable and a great place to start; whatever your musical tastes, this is a band you need to know
