Chub (Cedar Fever)

Recalling the hardened moments of Uncle Tupelo's locally produced final outing, 1993's Anodyne, the Gary's debut EP is a strong, dependable, and at times compelling collection of flatland rock & roll. While not exactly revelatory, the confidence of singer Dave Norwood lends itself well to the desperation in opener "Expiration" and the blue-collar appeal of "Damn Machines" and "I May Have a Drink."
