most things on no idea records, also most things on newest industry

I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the first time
I never think about the last

Manifesto Jukebox
Leif Ericsson
A Death in the Family
I Excuse
Blocko
Chillerton
Gunmoll
The Amistad

No shame in it. Dickie and Frankie figured out the best play to play the guitar in a punk rock context. It was unsurprisingly copied by everyone.

Manifesto Jukebox - Husker Du surely?

Re: Bands that wish they were leatherface

and blocko was broccoli. though i suppose at that point it gets complicated. is home better than mush? yikes

Re: Bands that wish they were leatherface

Judging from the OP, I'd figured we were naming bands who took a sizeable influence from Leatherface, than just being a straight carbon copies. Blocko and MJ have both nailed that arpeggiated guitar that Dickie and Frankie popularised, despite not sounding just like Leatherface Jr. Replace all those picked chords with just downstroked powerchords and both bands sound completely different. It's all in those ringing notes.
