Teenage Suicide -- do it!! (off The Nutty Antichrist, Passive Fist Records, 1996)

In/Humanity was the best thing that happened to emo/hardcore in the second half of the 1990s. They were very all about fun, but not in the stupid Fat-Wreck-way but more in a sarcastic and very clever way that I would associate with Born Against in the first half of the 90s. I think In/Humanity were the direct successors to Born Against.

Their records were fast, loud, hard and a feast for the eye. I was lucky enough to see them live on tour with Palatka in 1998.

I picked this song because of the intro in the beginning, it always cracks me up. I'm very sure I'll post more In/Humanity in the future.

The Meta-Matics

The Meta-Matics
Song 2 (off their LP on Dischord/Slowdime, 1996)

Another band from DC, another one with a name that is being used by some other guy (in this case a DJ or something).

Meta-Matics was a short-lived band that was truly math-rock. Members went on to play in Chrom-Techs and All Scars, but Meta-Matics are my favorite of all of them. They also had a split 7" with the mAKE-uP (the second mAKE-uP-release, first time I heard of Meta-Matics).

What do I like about them? Hard to say. I think they just didn't give a toss and played, and the voice actually sounded like a voice and not just some hipster yelps.

Note: I don't have the insert anymore (or was there ever one?) so I have no clue what the songs are called. To make matters worse, this one is an instrumental, so I can't even guess the title. So here is Song 2. Rock out.

Oh, Troubleman re-released this one with all other tracks they did - I fink they call that a discography - and you should get it NOW!

HiM (D.C.)

Eugene's Tree (off their European Tour 7" (split with Rujan) on Earwig Records, 2000)

Long time no post, you know how it goes. But I'm posting 2 in a row now, to make up for it?

First off Him from Washington DC, a band that features members of June of 44, and they toured in the winter of 99/00. I really liked them, together with all the other Erskine bands such as the Boom and the Sorts. I lump them all together perhaps, but they all had the same vibe. Good times.

I imagine this song isn't very easy to get hold off, so have fun with it!

Monosodium Glutamate (off Black Mono Time 7", Amish Records 1995)

Speedking, a.k.a. Speedking Trio, was a band I don't know much about. They've released a 7" on Troubleman which led me to buy a second 7" at the time. This song here is off that other single. They're mathrock-y, from NY and oh yeah, the drummer is now the dude from LCD Soundsystem and DFA Records. MSG is a slower number.
