Jawbreaker

Biography

Over the course of their ten-year, four album career, San Francisco's (via New York) Jawbreaker burned through some of the most agitated, fiery Punk-Pop of the '90s. Guitarist/lyricist Blake Schwarzenbach's searing, feedback-laden octaves careened through the rhythm section's compelling stop-and-roar arrangements; his struggling voice barking out some of the sharpest lyrics of the call to swords Post-Punk generation. Intensely hardworking, Jawbreaker's years of touring and independent minded business practice culminated in an alleged million dollar contract with Geffen and their final release, Dear You. A disappointment commercially, Dear You was arguably their greatest achievement, offering sleek, aggressive songs with some of the most devastating lyrics ever set to tape.
