Drive Like Jehu – “Yank Crime” LP
Once known as Pitchfork, later to be known as Hot Snakes, and in the interim, the finest of them all, the one known as Drive Like Jehu. Yank Crime was the second album by San Diego’s post hardcore pioneers. The perfect blend of DC hardcore dynamics – Fugazi and Soulside, most of all – with disonant Sonic Youth styled guitars, propelled by the unhinged wildness of the Unsane, contrasting with the dramatic tension of Slint. Boing! Still available on vinyl, and still comes with an additional 7″.
