"Jawbox was formed in Washington, DC in 1989 by guitarist/vocalist J. Robbins, bassist Kim Coletta, and drummer Adam Wade. Recorded in Hoboken, NJ with John Agnello in winter of 1995, Jawbox was the band's fourth and final album. If Sweetheart presented the band's music in a straightforward and unembellished state, Jawbox found the group more open to experimentation. Arrangement-wise, it contains some of the band's densest compositions ('Chinese Fork Tie'), but also some of its most concise and tuneful songwriting ('Excandescent'). While the basic tracks were recorded more or less live, the songs were later augmented with sounds -- toy drum kit, Hammond B3 organ, and saxophone -- that were outside of the band's established palate. Long out of print, Jawbox has been remastered on LP by Dan Coutant at Sunroom Audio and will re-issued on vinyl and CD by Dischord and DeSoto Records."
