Macbeth Music | At The Drive-In and Refused




This weeks Macbeth Music is a little bit different to normal. Instead of looking at the latest releases we are taking a look at two of the 90s most notable bands, At The Drive-In and Refused. After splitting up in 2001 and 1998 respectively, yesterday both groups announced they would be reforming for this years Coachella Festival in Indio, California.

Some people are stoked on the reunion and others are a little more skeptical, but whatever your opinion both bands arguably shaped the alt rock and punk rock scenes that surround us today and we can't wait to see them live!

Here's a brief background on the two bands as well as some classic videos to get you pumped.

At The Drive-In formed in 1993 in El Paso, Texas. During their time as a band they released three full length records and five EPs, their most notable release being their last album Relationship Of Command, which was arguably one of the most influential rock albums of the decade. Hopefully this video of them performing One Armed Scissor live on Jools Holland will give you a taster of what made them just so awesome...








Refused formed in Umea, Sweden in 1991 and also released three studio albums and five EPs during their time as a band. Their politically fuelled hardcore punk has inspired numerous bands since then and similarly to At The Drive-In's Relationship Of Command, their final album The Shape Of Punk To Come has stood the test of time as one of the most influential rock albums of modern times. Watch this incredible video of them performing Tannhäuser/Derivé live.








Bring on Coachella!
