Adam just dropped by a new Jawbreaker rarities and covers CD called "Jawbreaker Etc." out now his label, Blackball Records (www.blackballrecords.com)... looks pretty cool, a bunch of stuff that's pretty hard to come by, including "Kiss The Bottle", one of the coolest songs ever:

Shield Your Eyes/ Equalized/ Caroline/ Better Half/ Split/ Gutless/ With of Without U2/ Fantastic Planet/ Rich/ Peel it the Fuck Down/ Pretty Persuasion/ Kiss The Bottle/ First Step/ Friends Back East/ Sea Foam Green/ Housesitter/ Into You Like a Train/ Sister/ Friendly Fire/ Boxcar

"Split" was one of Jawb's best... and "Kiss the Bottle" is indeed great, too

eight months pass...

So, over a winter blues-y holiday I got really into Dear You, and decided that in the spirit of motherfuckers doing their January juice cleanses, I'm only listening to these guys for a month. Trying to focus on listening only to a record a week to not drive myself too nuts. Really enjoying it so far. Remembering listening to stuff like "Lawn" over and over because it was one of the few on Unfun that stuck with me at first, but then reading the lyrics and being disappointed I couldn't really relate. Which in retrospect is sort of a funny way to think of lyrics.

I realized yesterday afternoon that the bridge of "Eye-5" is where they became the stoned moody Jawbreaker I love best, the side of the band that overtook em by Dear You.

The Live album is actually my favorite--"Jinx Removing" on there is fucking killer--so I'm looking forward to listening to it last.

i love that in the middle of dark as fuck bivouac in the midst of an angry mutual-loathing fest like "tour song" you can still get a little bright spot like

in the middle of their 'weird, dark' follow up to the pop-punky *Unfun*, in the middle of a song about how swaths of the punk underground hate the band and there's a mutual loathing from the band as they travel the country playing to crowds of people that sneer at them, we get--

"Two cool people came
They're hiding by the door
Eyes wide with fright
A guy, a girl, in love with the whole world
It almost makes it right"

In 2013, I found an unprocessed Super 8 film cartridge of footage I shot in 1992. I had no idea what it was. This is it.

It was just brought to my attention that there is a band calling itself JAWBREAKER REUNION which is just this side of FREE BEER as a dishonest means of getting people to accidentally see your lousy band.

Part of me wants to defend the group calling itself JAWBREAKER REUNION on fool-&-his-money grounds--at the same time, I totally expect bad things to happen to the people behind it.

The 3rd result if you Google Blake's name is a mysterious and vague thread on some punk message board about him being arrested last year and having some vaguely erratic behavior. I wonder what the deal was.
