I saw Polvo at least once, maybe twice.
They made an unholy but fascinating racket at the Black Cat when they were opening up for Helium. Ash Bowie was in both bands but he switched to bass with Mary Timony's Helium.
Polvo were a bit outside my comfort zone in the mid-1990s when I was listening to a lot of Britpop. But they were/are an adventurous act and one of the essential bands on Merge Records. I am glad they're making music again.
This track is part of a radio session for WMBR in Cambridge, Mass., on 11/15/1991.
