Big Dipper were formed in Boston from the ashes of
Volcano Suns by
bassist Steve Michener and
guitarist Gary Waleik. They
hired vocalist Bill Goffrier of the
Embarrassment and released the bouncy,
catchy, punk-poppy EP Boo-Boo (Homestead, 1987).
Heavens (Homestead, 1987) spawned
Younger Bum and All Going Out Together,
two exemplary popcore refrains. The only reason Big Dipper were not as
famous as Lemonheads is that they didn't have
as cute a singer.
Craps (Homestead, 1988) and Slam (Epic, 1990) were vain commercial
sell-outs (the latter includes the ballad Love Barge and the Talking
Heads-style techno-funk Another Life).
Waleik and old-buddy and former Volcano Suns
bassist Bob Weston gathered more of Boston's rock elite for
The Clown Sessions (Rockville, 1993), credited to
Drummer Bob Fay (Sebadoh)
and vocalist Ron Ward (Blood Oranges)
complete the line-up for a set of improvised, cerebral art-rock.
