Season to Risk

Kansas City MO, United States (1989 – present)

Maybe one of Kansas City’s longest running bands, Season to Risk are one of the first names that come to mind for me whenever the topic of “local music” comes up. Still even these days, after being fairly dormant for the past couple years or so, they are one of the most prominent names around this area. And while there may have been plenty of other great bands to come out of KC during the 90’s, S2R were definitely at the top for being one of the noisiest and abrasive of the bunch.

Their lengthy career began in 1989 around the core of Steve Tulipana and Duane Trower. Paul Malinowski was also among the ranks at that time, but would later leave the band for Shiner after the bands first couple records. After recording a demo and the band was then swept up in the early 90’s alternative feeding frenzy by Columbia Records. After a couple early singles they released their first album, which was Self-Titled, through the label in 1992. A good album, but it was evident even then that there was going to be no mainstream market for a band like Season to Risk, however Columbia stuck with the band long enough for them put out a second record in the form of 1995’s In a Perfect World. The album obviously didn’t go on to be a hit with the masses; however to me was the bands best album and accurately what S2R were about sound wise. The album is raw, jagged, and full of nasty rumbling low end. While it goes fairly unnoticed these days, it sits comfortably amongst some of the better noise-rock records from that period in my opinion.

    I forgot all about these guys. I just listened to In A Perfect World after not hearing it for about 10 years.
