    “Romeo,” murmurs Greg Sage, “walks the city at night.” Beneath his voice, drums thunder along, almost motorik in their linear path, but twice as fast. “The tall dark buildings cast a ghostly shadow in his burning eyes.” Heavily fuzzed guitar and bass pick out a mutated rockabilly pattern underneath. “Oh Romeo, roam Romeo, Romeo roam, roam Romeo, yeah.” And for the chorus, a huge swoop of slide guitar and a whoosh of brass, like the sound of a railroad horn as the train races past in the darkness.

  • Subterranean homesick muse: Sub Pop’s Bruce Pavitt revisits 80s greatest bands
