Eric,

You ever read this book?

http://www.amazon.com/Amped-Notes-Go-Nowhere-Punk-Band/dp/0967790808/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1211242791&sr=1-2

My favorite chapter is when he talks about all the funny shit they did to the A&R people who sent the band letters during the band sweep of that era. Like they would ever fucking sign to a major!

No, I'll have to check that out. Thanks, Estey!

I remember seeing good ol Jawbreaker back in the day at the Firehouse.

Major or indie, they always had that "sincere, heart-wrenching" quality to them. That's why after all these years, Dear You is still a favorite in my collection.

yes yes!! I saw them all three times at the Old Fire House and they never disappointed.
And I still play my swirled blue Dear You too!

Well, that's better than Kevin Barnes' justification of "we live in a capitalist society, therefore it's impossible (by definition!) to sell out!"

Jawbreaker? Really scraping the barrel these days, Grandy.

Your barrel-bottom is my ceiling. Jawbreaker rules.
