With just a passing nod to the dawning age of recycling – Fake Train was packaged in a repurposed and desecrated Tom Jones album cover – Unwound released their first public offering (and second to be recorded). Like Dazzling Killmen and others, Unwound delivered a hardcore-inflected noise-infused all-assailing angst-scarred sound for the post-rock epoch, most cogently expressed by Fake Train. Fake Train joins Face Of Collapse and Rodan’s Rusty in a trilogy of essential 1993 recordings for this transient period in rock’s ever-decaying evolution.
