loss of innocence (2011/BLOOD & INK)
HARDCORE. Few bands have emerged from within spirit-filled hardcore creating music that appeals far beyond that scene, yet JAWBONE is doing just that. Their music recalls the '90s heavier hitters, both in sonic texture and lyrical potency. But don't be mistaken... despite blending chaotic, somewhat metallic, influences into their music, these boys from Indiana are most certainly hardcore. Colored 7" includes a MP3 download card with 1 additional track.
for your own special sweetheart (2009/DESOTO)
EMO/POST-PUNK. JAWBOX was born in 1989 from the post-hardcore scene emerging from the Dischord Records family in Washington D.C.. After a few records with Dischord, the band left to try their luck with Atlantic, producing "for your own special sweetheart", which is regarded by many to be the band's finest hour. Fast-forward to 2009 and the record has been uncovered and re-mastered, and is available for the 1st time in years on vinyl. Vinyl includes a digital download card, including the tracks from the "savory" 7".
EMO/POST-PUNK. The 11 tracks of "grippe" got re-cut in 2013. Colored vinyl includes a digital download which includes 5 extra songs - the 4 tracks from JAWBOX's debut 7" and the song "footbinder", which appeared on the "screw" compilation.
jackpot plus/motorist (2011/DISCHORD)
EMO/POST-PUNK. The "jackpot plus" session finds JAWBOX both at the height of their songwriting powers and in the middle of a major transition.

Shortly after the release of this single, JAWBOX signed with Atlantic for whom they released their final 2 albums. The vinyl was re-cut and re-mastered in 2011 and includes a digital download card.

JEAN MILLS SOCIETY TORCH
Start tomorrow (2008/FIRESTARTER)
HARDCORE-PUNK. This record has been 3 years in the making, but it's been well worth the wait. From the outer reaches of rural Maryland comes the state's best kept secret. Boredom, hate for the ingorance all around you, and a spiteful sense of humor combine to create some pretty good hardcore. Throw in a love of Japanese punk and you've got something really special. Like a perfect blend of JELLYROLL ROCKHEADS, EXCLAIM, NECROS and the MEATMAN. It's fast, it's furious, it's fun. The band features past and present members of THE SPARK, DEEP SLEEP, THE JONS etc..
