At the Drive-In
This Station is Non-Operational
Funny how it happens — the album that breaks a band into mainstream consciousness ends up being its last. In the case of At The Drive-In, that album was Relationship of Command. The band then splintered into the catchier, more accessible Sparta and the difficult-to-come-to Mars Volta. This single ‘best of’ CD charts seven years, with enough rare tracks to satisfy a curious fan. The DVD includes three videos, including “Invalid Litter Dept.” a song that describes the horrors against women in Juarez, Mexico. While ATDI’s blueprint was heavily rooted in bands like The Cure, Fugazi and Rites of Spring, few other bands matched ATDI’s energy on stage and dedication to touring, which explains why it is still missed today.
