MOTHER LOVE BONE

Q (UK) - - Review | Reissues -

ON EARTH AS IT IS: THE COM­PLETE WORKS UMC, OUT NOW Seat­tle rock­ers whose life­span was cut trag­i­cally short.

Led by ex­u­ber­ant front­man An­drew Wood, Mother Love Bone fea­tured future mem­bers of Pearl Jam and com­bined heavy rock riffs with a glammy, glit­tery swag­ger. Their world was spun from its axis when Wood died from an over­dose days be­fore the re­lease of their de­but al­bum. This com­pi­la­tion of that al­bum, Apple, plus pre­ced­ing EP Shine, show what all the fuss was about – Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns is all the proof you need that Wood would’ve been a star.
