Episode Notes

Join us on a ride along with Mark Lightcap, guitarist of forgotten 90s band Acetone, as he tells us all about a Los Angeles that no longer exists and the band that disappeared along with it.

In Los Angeles in the 90s, Acetone crafted a sultry California sound in their garage. They released an EP on Vernon Yard and two LPs on Neil Young's Vapor and toured with Spiritualized, Mazzy Star, Oasis, and The Verve. While their velvet sound remains absolutely beloved by figures in that scene, nowadays Acetone is surprisingly unknown.
