Original press came with the "bonus" 7". As stated, it was just tracks from the CD that wouldn't fit on the album.

Break Up Your Band

Re: drive like jehu

i saw them support The Offspring in Leeds - or am i making this up? They left no impression on me but i don`t think i have ever heard their LP so recorded output could be a lot better than being outclassed by The Offspring.

Always remember in the mid 90`s DLJ being very popular with punkers but i had them down with the whole "post-hardcore" scene which i didn`t get.

Love 'Yank Crime' but would take Hot Snakes or RFTC over Jehu any day of the week.

You might be thinking of Rocket From The Crypt, man! Don't think Drive Like Jehu would have fitted in too well at an Offspring show! Mainly because they're good! wink

if it was around '95, then they were two seperate gigs, both at the duchess - if i remember right they were real close together though, maybe a week apart or something?

eat more garlic, read more books

Re: drive like jehu

I remember picking up the 1st pressing of the yank crime CD for 2 pounds at some second hand record shop in London! One of the best finds ever smile

Re: drive like jehu

Does anyone know the story behind the name 'Drive Like Jehu'? I was four years old when this band broke up/stopped making music, is it some obscure reference from the 80s or early 90s?

Re: drive like jehu

Thanks. Suddenly this band's name sounds 50 times more badass.

Re: drive like jehu

this band is fucking god tier, Yank Crime still kicks the shit out of every other punk rock LP I can think in terms of sounding like a band hitting their isntruments really fucking hard and making a really good racket

Re: drive like jehu

YES YES YES FUCKEN YES YES ! ! ! ! ! !
i cannot wait to see Hot Snakes again on the 13th, t-minus 13 daze
2 of the best bands ever thou more DJL of course, kinda weird how EVERY punk band seems to name drop them now but as bad as saying the jesus lizard or summin too.  money, mouth

those live mp3s decent at all?

Re: drive like jehu

i bet the bands that name drop them sound nothing like them either.

Re: drive like jehu

Much as I love Jehu I reckon I've played Pitchfork more over the years.

Being bilingual ain't all its cracked up to be when you speak fluent bullshit in either language.

Re: drive like jehu

still can't get my head around how all the guitar lines fit together. so good.

wondering where the sound came from. obviously there was Pitchfork beforehand but what else kind of went into the mix to create the sound?

Re: drive like jehu

first lp is a bit grungey in places wink

i have no idea what this website is, but:

http://inflooenz.com/?artist=Drive+Like … influencer

looks pretty reasonable with some exceptions. rush? smile

Re: drive like jehu

that site looks kind of cool. wonder how they did it.

Rush are amazing. i guess i could see how Rush could fit with Drive Like Jehu in the guitars.

Re: drive like jehu

I heard Spirit Of Radio back in '90 without knowing what it was called. I bought 5 2nd hand Rush lps before finding it by which time I was blown away by how many bands had 'borrowed' their riffs; No Means No, Subhumans, Victims Family and yeah Jehu too + loads more.

Re: drive like jehu

intriguing. my knowledge of rush is minimal.

I can recommend A Farewell To Kings as a starting point. It takes awhile to get past the vocals and lyrics though. Have a listen to a bit of Yes and King Crimson too.
