Short Bio
 

A Thousand Plateaus presents an outfit we feel has withstood the test of time. After a long hiatus, the band emerges as a later stage iteration of their mid-80s cold wave outfit, About the Poets. All four original band members are back. They include Bruce Collet (vocals), Robert Kudrle (guitars), Kevin Lian-Anderson (bass), and Chris Weise (drums).

The band originates from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, a college town that was uniquely positioned in the 80's as both a conduit of and contributor to the midwest alternative music scene (when the word “alternative” still meant something). As young listeners, the band was steeped in the music of such seminal acts as The Replacements, Husker Du, and Naked Raygun.

In 2020, A Thousand Plateaus presents their self-titled full-length album as an ambitious and bold comeback that revels in its post-punk and indie spirit.

My Purchase, a single from the album, is a commentary on the denial of science in the face of the undeniability of scientific fact.

Album Description - 'A Thousand Plateaus'

Over eight tracks, A Thousand Plateaus is intended to be big, unafraid, and urgent, as we hope the opening track,  “Even the Sun has a Dial”  makes clear with its strong drive, stressed guitar work, assertive vocals, and summoning drums.  In the second track, “Sabellian,” vocals rest into a more lyrical pace; however, by the chorus the song moves to make an equally assertive statement. Like “Sun Dial,” the song is played forward and with resolve. So too is “My Purchase,” the album’s forth track, which relentlessly pushes through its changes, in a style congruent with such 80s punk giants as Misfits. Contrastingly, “The Night will Open,” strives for a depth of sound that might harken back to the 4AD catalogue of the mid-80’s. Certainly the more tender of our influences may also be detected in  “I Have You.” The album’s sixth song, “Avivit,” calmly unfolds as if it were a story being told at the end of a bar, and hits in the middle like a shot of Spirytus, inserting a re-connection with the bigness of the album sound. The final song on the vinyl release, “November Snow,” is similar to the album’s opening number, but moves more evenly and methodically to its dark climax. “The Natural Lawbreakers” is made available to purchasers of the lp as a high-resolution download. We believe the song provides a fitting cap to the collection, and feels perhaps like a walk through tall rolling grasses at early dusk.

American Robb, (10/12/2020), "A Thousand Plateaus' post punk double down on My Purchase", American Pancake

 

"My Purchase" from the band's self titled debut, as A Thousand Plateaus, cuts a deep path, with strident guitar work, a swinging drum beat, chunking palm mutes, feral lead rockisms, beautiful big falls into bohemian garden rock that blend heavy rock, Goth pop, surf punk (and more) into a wonderful (to me) 90's college rock radio amalgam. A car crash of R.E.M, Guided By Voices, the Descendants, The Smiths and Superchunk."
