In this narrative history and memoir, journalist, musician, and Monctonian Jason Murray follows the rise of the band that put the Maritimes on the map.Eric's Trip was a band defined as much by its DIY ethos as its low-fi, discordant music.  The four-piece formed in an early-'90s Moncton basement and in a few short years, went from recording themselves on a four-track and selling cassettes at local record stores to signing on Seattle's Sub Pop records, opening for Sonic Youth, and touring internationally.Twenty years after the band's breakup (1996), A Distorted Revolution is the ultimate nostalgia trip.
