How We Live: Dry Land (Esoteric Recordings)


How We Live was the second-chance band of an artist whose first band had been screwed over by record label politics. That this new band would soon face the same fate is frustrating, but the story of How We Live does have a happy ending–and a rare third chance for success in an industry that is resistant to giving anyone a second chance. That their sole album Dry Land happens to be one of the finest lost jewels of the Eighties only makes this story even more (bitter)sweet.
