Buffalo Tom

Buffalo Tom

Beggars Banquet
Released 16 August 1988

Boston's Buffalo Tom began life as a trio of pre-grunge, neo-psychedelic guitar maulers, but over the next dozen years they matured into a considerably more dynamic and intelligent band, capable of generating crunching rockers or acoustic ballads with equal precision, all of which possessed heart, soul, and a compassionate intelligence. The band's name is derived from the band Buffalo Springfield and the first name of the drummer.

Some bands offer up everything they have on their first album, and some bands just get started; this J.Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) produced album showed that Buffalo Tom had plenty of talent and potential.
