Death Of Samantha

If Memory Serves Us Well

St. Valentine
CD $13.50


SVR 30 CD 

If Memory Serves Us Well is the first album released in 24 years by Cleveland underground rock legends DEATH OF SAMANTHA. If Memory Serves Us Well marks the return of Death of Samantha, which released three albums and an EP on Homestead Records, a pioneering New York indie label run by Gerard Cosloy. Death of Samantha reunited with its original line-up and recorded If Memory Serves Us Well while practicing in the studio for a reunion concert. The band was so happy with the results that it decided to release the album, which features 18 songs that span the career of the band, from 1984-1990. During that time, Death of Samantha performed with contemporaries such as Nirvana, Sonic Youth, the Replacements, Smashing Pumpkins, the Gun Club and Jesus and Mary Chain. The band’s iconoclastic approach inspired, among others, ROBERT POLLARD of GUIDED BY VOICES, THURSTON MOORE and MARK LANEGAN. All three contribute liner notes to If Memory Serves Us Well, along with esteemed critic BYRON COLEY. After breaking up, members of Death of Samantha went on to play in COBRA VERDE, Guided by Voices, GEM, SWEET APPLE and NADA SURF. In 2014, the band plans to re-issue its back catalog and re-enter the studio to record an album of new material. (STREET DATE - 3/04/2014)
