Unlike The Boo Radleys, Chavez never really grazed the popular conscious, despite having some indie credibility through being signed to Matador records. The late 1990s saw them release two albums in two years – ‘Gone Glimmering’ and ‘Ride the Fader’, the latter coming in 1996. Of the members, only Matt Sweeney has really gone on to do anything of note in the music since Chavez last recorded (though little of his work since then has been of a similar style to Chavez). Rumours abound of a third Chavez album, which could be an excellent thing, we shall see.
Anyhow, if you aren’t familiar with them, I’d recommend trying ‘Gone Glimmering’, which is a really consistent album with some lovely songs on it. Check out the video for ‘Break up Your Band’, which is also pretty funny.
