ARCHERS OF LOAF had a punksish/indie edge but were able to mix it up with melodic and catchy songs. What makes ICKY METTLE so special is the lo-fi production and great song writing with songs that will echo in your head for days. In a way they sound like a beefed up version of Pavement minus annoying songs about hair cuts and shady lanes. Archers also stayed true to their indie sensibilities in the early 90’s and refused to sign with a major, which was rare back in those days. Good for them.
