Jawbox Air Waves Dreams

Jawbreaker With Or Without U-2

JAWBREAKER / CRIMPSHRINE Better Half - Sanctuary split 7 inch 1993

Reupped October 2012


A Jawbreaker Better Half
B Crimpshrine Sanctuary


1000 copies pressed, but only 300 still exist as the other 700 were supposedly destroyed when Jeff Ott (Crimpshrine / Fifteen) found out that the money from this benefit 7" wasn't going where it should have gone. (loosecharm.org) the supposed release date there (91 or 92) cannot be right, because the coverdrawing is signed "93'Mr.Mike" (from Discogs)

Few of punk rock's founding fathers could have anticipated the extreme to which Half Japanese took the music's do-it-yourself ethos. Founded by brothers Jad and David Fair, Half Japanese was quite probably the most amateurish rock band to make a record since the Shaggs, all but ignoring musical basics like chords, rhythms, and melody. However, the brothers made that approach into a guiding aesthetic, steadfastly refusing to progress in their primitive musicianship over a career that lasted decades. David Fair's article "How to Play Guitar" outlined the Half Japanese philosophy: … » Read more

Friends since their childhood days in Durham, NC, Johnny Irion (vocals, guitar), Ryan Pickett (guitar), Chris Hollaway (bass), and Zeke Hutchins (drums) held their first rehearsals for Queen Sarah Saturday in 1990. Thirsty Ear released the band's debut EP in August 1993, followed one year later by the full-length Weave. Although the band's messy, melodic power pop never found a national audience, the song "Seems" was memorably featured in the 1995 film Empire Records, and frontman Johnny Irion went on to enjoy a modest career with his solo albums and collaborative projects with wife Sarah Lee Guthrie

ACTION SLACKS Too Bright Just Right Good Night 1996


by Jason Ankeny

San Francisco indie-rockers Actionslacks assembled singer/guitarist Tim Scanlin, bassist Mark Wijsen and drummer Martin Kelly. Formed in 1995, the trio recorded the entirety of their first demo in a breakneck 11-hour session, soon signing with the Minneapolis-based indie label Skene! to release their 1996 debut LP Too Bright, Just Right, Goodnight. For 1998's One Word, Actionslacks signed with Arena Rock, subsequently touring with labelmates Harvey Danger. The new millennium was a growing period for the band -- bassist Ross Murray and guitarist/vocalist Doug Modie joined Actionslacks and the long-awaited third album The Scene's Out of Sight was issued in early 2001.
