Buffalo Tom (Bill Janovitz, Chris Colbourn and Tom Maginnis) formed at the
University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1984 - a breeding ground of post
punk guitar bands like Dinosaur Jr. and Pixies. They thrived on college radio in
the late 1980's and toured extensively in Europe, the US, Australia and
Japan. In 1992 the band recorded their third album Let Me Come Over with a
varied group of songs they had been developing at home and on the road -
mixing their live power trio sound with some more acoustic based guitar ballads.

the trio exiting the insular underground for the wide world of “alternative”

similar three-piece format, stunning depth of songwriting and association with
Boston's Fort Apache Studios - it's not hard to imagine Buffalo Tom
wanted to stake a claim stylistically. Yet, LMCO never feels like a break with
the past, it's a transition. Inside that abstruse cover are undeniably
magnificent tunes.

Let Me Come Over is being reissued with a live album - in fact the first
ever live release from Buffalo Tom. The show was recorded in early
