Drive Like Jehu: Yank Crime 12"+7"
Classic 1994 album repressed on black vinyl with the Hand Over Fist b/w Bullet Train to Vegas 7" included, still at a great price. With every member cranking the intensity and volume up to 11, Yank Crime is an out-of-control muscle car of an album veering between short, sharp blasts of chaotic fury and longer multi-faceted compositions that let the band stretch out without losing their intensity. Features Rick Froberg on vocals/guitar (Hot Snakes, Pitchfork, OBITS), John Reis on guitar (Pitchfork, Rocket From The Crpyt, Hot Snakes, Sultans, Nightmarchers), Mike Kennedy on bass and Mark Trombino on drums. Cover artwork by Rick Froberg.
Second album from this great Reis/Froberg collabo (see also: Hot Snakes and Pitchfork). If you ask me, this is their best stuff... it kind of sounds like Fugazi, but way more punk, technical, and "out there." Man, what a great f***ing record. Headhunter Records
