A very cool take on post-Fugazi punk with really strong hooks, interesting melodies, and some nice interlocking guitars. Loud vs quiet, mellow vs screech. There are some quiet moments which feel a bit like early-80’s Crimson. So, a great fusion of a bunch of things. It’s too bad they didn’t last past this album.
The drummer on this is now with Pinback, which seems appropriate. If you like Pinback, or Trail Of Dead…, give this a listen. Very cool stuff. Total rock action.
Seriously, if there’s one record on this list you all should check out, it’s this one.
And if you don’t believe me, believe the good and honorable, TBogg, who turned me onto them (they being both from San Diego).
This is a newcomer to the list.
