Secret of Secret of Multiple Cat
In the first part of the last decade, labels and bands began to multiply. Rules changed. It became possible for a few guys from Iowa to catch the ear of a NYC label. Patrick Stolley and his shifting crew were in the game, this before The Marlboro Chorus or the Futureappletree collective. From 1993-2000, disparate songs ranging from the urgent "New Marcus Aurelius" to the finality of "Canvassed and Spent" illustrate the eclectic, familiar yet new pop sounds of an amorphous band from an ordinary place...media shy but lyrically strong, the recipe for any secret that you want to know the answer to.
