Beat Happening – Beat Happening – LP

Beat Happening, the seminal Olympia, Washington trio that transformed the Pacific Northwest underground music scene in the ‘80s and ‘90s. A hundred summer days bottled up inside one guitar. This release is the first Beat Happening album, reissued with lots of extra material recorded during 1983-85, the time during which the first album was originally recorded and released.

The trio’s music was a “testament to the DIY aesthetic; don’t think about it, just do it… fresh in its minimalism, a solid argument for going out and starting a band just to see what might happen.” (CMJ, March 1988)
