  • Morphine

    ‘90s alt-rock trio Morphine was one of the few bands of the era to not glorify the electric guitar. Hailing from Cambridge, Massachusetts, their unique blend of blues, jazz, and rock – termed “low rock” – featured a two-string slide bass, drums, and sax. Though they never really broke into the mainstream, they were popular on college radio and featured on MTV. Their albums Good (1992), Cure for Pain (1993), Yes (1995), and Like Swimming (1997) were well received by critics and helped the band sustain its large cult following. Sadly, Morphine’s career was tragically cut short in 1999 when singer/bassist Mark Sandman died onstage of a heart attack. The band’s final studio album, The Night, was released in 2000.
