Eight or Nine Feet

  • Eight or Nine Feet
  • Flint [tape] (self-released) 1989 
  • Resolution (Reverie) 1990 

Formed at college in Raleigh, North Carolina, this guitar-pop quartet shows enough writing and performing skill on Resolution to make its above-average vinyl debut a tuneful Beatle-influenced pleasure. Armed with four writer/singers and no stylistic instincts you’d be tempted to call quirky, Eight or Nine Feet sticks to traditional Anglo-pop values with a Southern accent, modulating its clean dual guitar sound from Saturday night excitement to Sunday morning politeness. Neat.
