The Veldt fell just short of being an anathema in the Chapel Hill indie rock scene of the early '90s. Sounding and looking nothing like the striped shirt contingent of Superchunk, Polvo, or Archers of Loaf, the band was more at home with the likes of England's dream pop bands. They were predominantly black, an unfortunate mark against them. What could be more natural than black men playing rock & roll? Keep the atmosphere of the Cocteau Twins and A.R.
