I can’t find much to say on Benchwarmer. They were from Victoria, BC and featured Paul Block who would go on to do great things in Render Useless. Not that Benchwarmer is bad in anyway. It’s great, as you can assume since they were on Slow to Burn Records. Their 7″ “Pud” in 1994 and a song on the “Group Therapy Explosion” in 1996, both on Slow to Burn. They also had a track on the compilation “Fuck the Commonwealth” from Fans of Bad Productions Records. Benchwarmer had that typical Sub Pop influence (whether its the indie or grunge side) and Paul’s early vocals sometime remind me of Robert Smith (The Cure). These are all in compliments of course. Get this stuff!
