90s in 90 Days #24: The early days of Stabbing Westward



Stabbing Westward got signed to a major label at a time when labels were looking for bands that shared at least a kindred spirit and audience with the just-proven-to-be-successful Nine Inch Nails. Remembers singer Christopher Hall of what his life was like back then, “We ended up getting picked up by Columbia‚ĶI was sellingshoes at 99th Floor. (Selling) Doc Martens to transvestites,that was a good time.”

90s in 90 Days



Over the course of 90 days (not consecutive, though I’ll try), I’ll be offering up a capsule look at something about Chicago music from the 90s.  It could be a radio memory.  Thoughts on a song, show, band, or album.  Maybe a review aided by hindsight.  Whatever it is, it’ll be original content just for this site, and not found in my book.
