Black Tambourine - Complete Recordings

Over the course of 1990, while Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer poisoned American radio, Black Tambourine sat down and wrote eight songs in sympathy with the British noise pop they admired from afar. [..] If there's any justice, Black Tambourine will see their name inserted into revisionist histories of American independent rock. Though their existence was laughably short, the band concocted a great sound out of step with even their peers, pointing the way for a string of female-fronted underground bands formed soon after their demise. -Pitchfork
