Most shoegaze fans can tell you about Catherine Wheel's first two records, Ferment and Chrome, both prime pieces of pop-minded, alt rock-y shoegaze. After that, it would seem, the band completely fell off, released a few shitty records, and broke up.
OR DID THEY?
Well, yeah, they did eventually break up. But they actually released one pretty good record (Happy Days) and one truly shitty record (Wishville). And between those records, they managed to get it really, really right one more time with Adam and Eve. If lovestruck, melancholic, and vaguely psychedelic 90s alt rock is your thing (bands like Screaming Trees and Smashing Pumpkins come to mind), you need this record in your life.
