From '93 'Til Infinity


The latest Dromedary compilation celebrates our 20th Birthday.

It was back in 1993 that Dromedary released its first compilation and began hosting shows at New Jersey and New York music venues. That time was a tremendously fertile and creative one for indie rock, and we were inspired by a host of bands and labels that were releasing great music at the time.

To celebrate our 20th anniversary of putting out records, we asked our friends to go back to 1993 with us, choose from one of the great indie rock songs that were released that year, and record a cover. The result is a fantastic assortment of great songs, from some of the greatest indie rock bands ever.

The track listing reads like a Who’s Who of 1990s indie rock (and hip hop), performed by a Who’s Who of our friends. Check it out:

1. The 65s • “Precision Auto” (Superchunk cover)
2. Cinema Cinema • “50 Ft. Queenie” (PJ Harvey cover)
3. Varsity Drag • “Let’s Electrify” (Versus cover)
4. Penguins Kill Polar Bears • “93 ‘Til Infinity” (Souls Of Mischief cover)
