The Permanent Green Light - Hallucinations, Balthasar and the Other Planets


The short-lived Los Angeles trio Permanent Green Lightfeatured the songwriting and vocal talents of guitarist Matt Devine and bassist Michael Quercio. The latter had been in the psychedelic pop group the Three O'Clock and this project melded their Baroque melodies with the strutting crunch of a grunge Big Star. They only released a handful of singles, one EP, and an album, 1993's Against Nature, before splitting up, but it was enough to make them a memorable, if completely unsung, addition to the era's underground music scene.
