Da Jacksonville giungono i Rein Sanction: Mark Gentry (chitarra e canto),
Ian Chase (basso) e Drunnon Gentry (batteria) costituiscono un power-trio
che ambisce a trasportare le sonorita` dei Dinosaur Jr nelle lande
dei Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Dopo un decoroso primo album, Broc's Cabin (SubPop, 1991),
con la title-track,
il depresso Mariposa (SubPop, 1992), con This Town, Cross Creek e Every Color,
ridimensiona la portata della loro operazione, incappando negli stessi limiti
del loro maestro Mascis.
Rein Sanction were a power-trio from Jacksonville (Florida):
Mark Gentry (vocals and guitar),
Ian Chase (bass) and Drunnon Gentry (drums).
Broc's Cabin (SubPop, 1991) introduced yet another imitation of
Dinosaur Jr's noise-pop, although its best
moments boasted a dense arrangement of guitar effects that surpassed the
master's own intensity. The result sounded
bleak and ominous like a cross between voodoo and noise-rock.
Mariposa (SubPop, 1992) was a depressed work that showcased Mascis'
worst defects and few of his assetts.
