So I've been doin this band project with this younger feller who's into a lot of newish indie/post-hardcore/emo/whatever. I made this for him as his proto-post-hardcore indoctrination... Kind of a primer to the pre-Nevermind state of post-punk. There's not a lot of bands on here that were really tagged with any of those labels, but it's pretty hard to deny that they laid the framework for the stuff that's flooding MTV today.

This was before "emo" meant having perfectly groomed sideburns, playing acoustic guitar and whining about your old girlfriend; this is when emo meant being a grimy quasi-hippie, playing a beat-to-shit thrift store electric, and....uh...whining about your old girlfriend.
