Pegboy: Strong Reaction 12
Chicago's Pegboy comes from a long line of fine melodic Midwest hardcore. Echoes of genre-defining bands like Minneapolis's Hsker D and their hometown's Naked Raygun (which shared members with Pegboy) are immediately traceable in their sound, but STRONG REACTION represented a notable stripping-down. The songs are fat-free locomotives of anthemic forward motion. The opening title track is as compelling a theme song as a punk band has written before or since, and soaring, roughed-up pop tracks like "Superstar" and "Time Again" remain a blueprint for young emo bands trying to break the radio barrier.
