Bivouac did everything an alternative trio from Derby, who grew up on a steady diet of Husker Du, Sonic Youth and The Pixies, could dream of doing in the nineties. They released a string of records on cool indie label Elemental, recorded sessions for John Peel, played with Fugazi and Jesus Lizard, danced onstage with Nirvana, signed to a major label and split up. They’d began in 1992 and were over by 1996, but in that brief period, Bivouac crafted some essential, skewed and fuzzy tuneage that has endured and lingered on the cult fringes of alternative rock. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Tuber, their debut album, and to celebrate such an event, this September 7th sees the release of a double vinyl reissue that is coupled with the first official release of the two Peel Sessions and issued through the band’s own label, Thanks Capitalism, on a limited run of 500 copies. You can pre-order the expanded and remaster edition of Tuber here
