90s in 90 Days #77: Filter arrives in Chicago


Filter relocated from Cleveland to Chicago in the 1990s, mainly because the Cleveland scene couldn’t sustain the then-fledgling band.  Explains Filter mastermind Richard Patrick, “We had done the entire record (‘Short Bus’) in a house in Rocky River, Ohio.  It was like, ‘Okay, let’s try and find some musicians.’ It just was not happening.  We couldn’t find anyone.  We got a bass player named Frank Cavanaugh from Cleveland. But everybody else we wanted, (we had) to go find in Chicago.” 

(12/9/09)-There was an audio player from Imeem embedded here that no longer functions, due to MySpace’s acquisition of Imeem on 12/8/09.  I’m leaving the post up, regardless.  Pretend you can hear the song.



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.
