Tuesday Weld

Tuesday Weld was formed around 1991 by Michael Beckett (kptmichigan, Super Reverb, etc.), Dirk Kretz, Bob Schätzle, and Haggy. At the time, the guys were influenced by Dinosaur Jr., SeBADoh, Hüsker Dü, Superchunk, and so on. Then a Norwegian horde called Motorpsycho came along and made it clear that a broader sense of musical taste means better music. It was also around this time that the guys began to dabble in electronic music, post-rock, and krautrock. Starscene '98, their second and last album, was released by in 1998 Supermodern and contains the single Less Complicated, whose brilliant and self-directed video clip ran in heavy rotation on the German music TV station Viva at the time.
