John Henry West - John Henry West 7"
So wait, by posting Spazz and a Very Small compilation, does that open the floodgates to all 90's hardcore? Cause, if so, I'm in!
Fucking John Henry West! Most notable as "that Mike Kirsh band between Fuel and Torches To Rome", John Henry West were way more. They have touches of the D.C. post hardcore Fugazi style that Torches To Rome was rocking, but they also have the biting abrasion of the best Born Against period sorta like what Echonochrist were rocking, and a healthy does of straight up USA Hardcore (USA! USA!). Unbeatable, right? Right?!
Let's try and list all the ex-bands, this should be fun...
Fuel, Torches To Rome, Salem Lights, End Of The Line, Han Shan, Dragon Rojo, Reach Out, Fade, Electric Birds, Cars Get Crushed, Sea Tiger, Sawhorse, Skinflutes, Pinhead Gunpowder, Bread And Circuits, Navio Forge, Please Inform The Captain This Is A Hijack, Colbom, Mercury, Araby, aaaaaaaaaaand, Scherzo. Phew! Did I miss anyone?
