This year marks the 30th anniversary of alternative guitar-pop hero Matthew Sweet's debut album. His stretch of critically-acclaimed classics from 1991 through 1997 -- Girlfriend, Altered Beast, 100% Fun and Blue Sky On Mars -- delivered some of the most memorable college-radio hits of that decade, mixing sonic ambitiousness with a knack for lovelorn nostalgia and pristine vocal harmonies. Before he hits the road in September for a series of Midwest and east coast tour dates, Matthew talks about his recent Kickstarter campaign to fund his next album Tomorrow Forever, his early memories of vinyl as a kid, his cameos in the Austin Powers trilogy, his days in the Athens, GA music scene and fighting with then record labels about not wanting to appear on the cover of his albums, which leads to the story of how the iconic Girlfriend album cover came to be. Visit MatthewSweet.com for tour dates and album news, and follow him on Twitter @IAmMatthewSweet.
