It was May 4th, 1998. The Breakroom, Seattle, that curious construction worker themed venue that hosted some of the best bands in town during its tenure. If you were there you already know. If you weren’t you wish you were. This was the night that Western State Hurricanes officially made landfall on the Jet City live scene and left a path of glorious rock destruction in their wake. Like the plaything of a mischievous, bored deity sick of the same old alternative music being peddled across town they came, they made us fall in love again.

And then in a blink it was over.

Of course, the music of Western State Hurricanes would eventually re-appear in a new form with the much loved and respected The Long Winters, a new John Roderick fronted band, but it wasn’t exactly the same. It wasn’t...the Western State Hurricanes. They did, of course, make recordings, you will be ecstatic to know, but they never really saw the light of day. Until now...

Western State Hurricanes Seattle, Washington

The debut album from the late 90's phenomenon who blazed across the Seattle scene like a lightning bolt before quickly imploding. Most of these songs were later vastly re-imagined on front-man John Roderick's future debut album by The Long Winters.
