Superchunk are a 4-piece indie rock band from North Carolina, USA. They formed in 1989 and I knew some of their music via Peel in the early 90s. I liked their songs as they were quite happy sounding and they kind of had their own sound, mainly due to the distinctive voice of the singer, Mac McCaughan. They are still going and have now released 14 albums, the most recent in 2004.
I'm only really knowledgeable of their first 3 albums, up to 1992. I have a recording from the radio of part of their Glastonbury 1993 set. The first half of it is here and if you are interested in having the rest, let me know and I'll upload it.

Tracklisting of part 1.

  • The Question is How Fast
  • Precision Auto
  • unknown title (if you know it, let me know)
  • Cast Iron

Superchunk live 25/6/93

Thank you so much for posting this. I love Superchunk so much. Please post the rest of the set.

You should definitely check out the rest of their albums, as well as everything by Portastatic, Mac's solo project (especially "The Summer of the Shark" and "Be Still Please"). They're all incredible.

Hello again Onion Terror. I wanted to invite you and your readers to my new social network that I have created. It's similar in appearance to myspace (minus all the hormone-crazed teenagers), but it is intended to serve as a hangout for artists, musicians, and those who love art and music in general. I have also included a forum category for music bloggers such as yourself to promote their blogs and share updates. If you are interested, here is the url:


I hope to see you there. Take care.

Hi Zero, I'll have a look later. I just want to inform you all that I will be back soon with more posts. I've had to reformat my hard drive so that's why I've been away.
