Modern Classics Recordings is proud to present the release of Built to Spill's debut album, Ultimate Alternative Wavers on vinyl for the very first time. Showcasing a nod to Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr, UAW was recorded at Audio Lab Studios in the band's hometown of Boise, Idaho and soon after released on Seattle imprint C/Z Records in 1993.
Featuring former Treepeople member Doug Martsch, Caustic Resin's Brett Netson, and drummer Ralf Youtz the album features total rippers like the nine-minute "Built Too Long Parts 1, 2 & 3," while the hazy daze of "Nowhere Nothin' Fuckup" lyrically pays homage to Velvet Underground's "Oh! Sweet Nuthin." Ultimate Alternative Wavers remains a special time capsule from one of modern rock's great bands that is still going strong after 21 rewarding years.
