Elevator – A Taste Of Complete Perspective

I Wanna Taranna Pt. 3: BMV #3 Elevator – A Taste Of Complete Perspective

Elevator started out as Elevator To Hell, then Elevator Through, then just Elevator. It was a solo project for Eric’s Trip’s Rick White, but it soon added ET’s drummer Mark Gaudet, White’s ex-wife Tara and, briefly, Ron Bates of Orange Glass. Dallas Good of the Sadies played with them too. They’ve made a ton of albums over the years, especially for Sub Pop in the early years, but later stuff seems to be CDr releases. Pretty sure I saw them open for Sloan in the mid-90s, probably the Navy Blues tour show we saw on the University Of Waterloo campus. I think they were called Elevator Through when we saw them but I could be wrong.

This 2000 effort was on Teenage USA, and is chock full (predictably) of fuzzed out grungy punker gloriously-weirdo psychedelic rock shenanigans. There are lots of between-song noises and static and the album starts out with a track of water noises… At first glance it sometimes sounds like Eric’s Trip, but then you hear the transition between the tracks I’m A Radio Station and The Animals, with all the birds chirping, and then The Animals goes off into its own world and you realize this is not just more Eric’s Trip, not even close. It is its own, er, animal, and it’s a glorious late-night wrecking ball for your skull. I really enjoyed the taste of complete perspective this album offered!
