Plumtree- Mass Teen Fainting
Mass Teen Fainting, Plumtree’s endearing, youthful debut was recorded in Ottawa with Paul Hogan (a.k.a. Rod Glue) in 1995 with no budget, in between tour dates that summer. It was a hot one and the band and their road manager, Dusty Sorbet, stayed in Hogan’s unventilated attic, barely able to sleep, and almost entirely subsisting on a diet of $2 bagels with cream cheese.
Featuring the singles “Tropical,” “In The Sink” and “Sodium Chloride”, the band’s varied influences (Elvis Costello and the Attractions, early Metallica, 50’s-60s girl groups like the Shirelles) are all evident throughout a record that’s ultimately a cleverly arranged collection of pop songs.
