Some Velvet Sidewalk was a popular experimental lo-fi rock band from Olympia, WA on the independent label K Records. Their debut album, "From Playground 'Til Now", was independently released on cassette in 1988. In 1990, Al Larsen along with Tobi Vail (drums) and Louise Olsen (bass) recorded the album, "Shipwreck". Following suit, the next album, "Whirlpool", showed up in 1994. SVS soon added keyboardist Paul Schuster to the lineup to record the 1997 album, "Generate!". The final true SVS release, the EP "The Lowdown", was released in late 1997. The band broke up soon after, and the members went their separate ways. In 1999, Al compiled and released a posthumous SVS album called "Original Love Rock Masters".
Alongside fellow natives Beat Happening, Some Velvet Sidewalk helped establish Olympia, WA, as an epicenter of the American indie rock community throughout the 1980s and 1990s, their minimalist sound and wide-eyed world view giving rise to the emergence of the love-rock ethic. Originally a duo comprised of singer/guitarist Al Larsen and drummer Robert Christie, Some Velvet Sidewalk debuted in 1988 with a cassette titled From Playground Till Now; the single "I Know," their first release for the famed local label K Records, followed later that same year. After the full-length Appetite.
