Seattle grunge troupe Love Battery generated a current of excitement through the
crowd Tuesday night at Duffy’s Tavern.
Band energizes
Love Battery jump starts crowd
By Carter Van Pelt
Staff Reporter
“The real gut-wrenching power
in most recordings comes from the
guitars,” Love Battery vocalist/
guitarist Ron Nine said before the
band’s Tuesday night show at
Duffy’s Tavern. The comment re
ferred to the guitar-grunge sound
that Love Battery has developed
since forming in 1989.
“That’s what sounds good to us,
so we just go for it”The end prod
uct of the Love Battery formula at
times could be described as a
combination of Huskcr Du and Sonic
Youth, but the influences Nine cited
go far beyond those bands.
“I’d be happy to be compared to
Miles Davis or Digital Underground
... because if I like something, it’s
gonna be an influence. I like beer,
so it’s an influence.”
Even though Miles Davis and
Digital Underground probably
weren’t the first things in the minds
of the Duffy’s crowd Tuesday
evening (okay, beer was), the fans
were treated to an hour of Love
Battery’s powerful set, featuring
music from their latest Sub Pop
release, “Dayglo.”
Perhaps one reason why the
guitars are so interesting in this
band is that Love Battery uses them
as creatively and thoroughly as any
band since The Jesus and Mary
Chain.Nine and guitarist Kevin
Whiteworth play slide on many of
the songs. Feedback and distortion
are utilized, but not in the chaotic

manner of JMC. Nine and White
worth are into melodies, hooks,
and cool riffs that give the songs a
pop side much like other bands
from their native Seattle.
And what about SeatUe?
Rolling Stone magazine recenUy
called it the next Liverpool and
mentioned Love Battery in the
article. Nine agreed with RS’s
explanation of how the city got its
own musical sound.
“It’s isolated up there,” Nine
said. “San Francisco is 14 hours
away, and between Seattle and
Minneapolis, there’s nothing. For
the longest time, it was just the
same musicians feeding off each
other and influencing each other,”
he said. “With that came the inde
pendent labels and nauonal expo
Nine says the music scene in
SeatUe owed a debt to Sub Pop
artist Mudhoney. “They really broke
the whole thing open.” He also
credited Soundgarden, but cited
them as more of a metal band and
less indicative of the Seattle sound
developed by the likes of Tad, the
Melvins and Nirvana.
According to Nine, Love Bat
tery’s short-term goals include
putting out another album oaSub
Pop. The group has already written
eight songs fora new LP. Their two
month lour ends in Denver this
week, but the group will be back on
the road in the summer for selected
East Coast dates and a European
tour with the Screaming Trees.
“We want to continue to grow,”
Nine said. “We want to make a
living at this. “Obviously, were
barely squeaking by right now.”
Nine said the most important
thing he wanted people to know
about Love Battery was that the
music comes first. “That’s what’s
foremost to us. Its not just an im
age, its not a hype. That’s the whole
point of alternative music,” he said.
Nine said he wanted people to
be subjective when listening to Love
Battery. “There’s no real message
other than what people can get out
of it themselves. We feel strongly
about things, and hopefully we’re
not preaching,” Nine said.
“I don’t think we are. It’s up to
people to make up their own minds,
that’s the bottom line.”
The Duffy’s crowd made up its
mind about Love Battery. Many
hung around to talk to the band,
buy tapes and CDs, get autographs,
and make sure that Love Battery
will be back in Lincoln for another
