I think I've started one of these before.
Anyone else a fan of their great tunes?

Why do post-hardcore guys always look the same?

Anyways, I'll look into them. Any particular album?

You've not heard them yet you're calling them 'post-hardcore'?

Get either of their albums. they're both great.

That's 'cause you're old and have no concept of common day reality.

Yeah, so do I.

They write some of my favourite lyrics too:

When the sun came up on the small block of the city, we needed to find somewhere to drink. Through five days of working and two left to our person, we all needed sometime to breathe. So use your body as the engine for your weekend because this is no time to sleep. I want to create, I don't want to be constricted. I'm sick of working all of the time for someone else's needs. So give me some kind of section for my protection. What is this doing to me? I've got a life and desires, and it's more than to retire. I trust there's more in a life to lead. I want a minute with my woman and an hour outside of this city, and I don't care what you expect of me. No, I don't care what you expect of me. I want to detach this from me. If life is a movement, and I feel like I'm not moving, then what is the sense of giving all of your time away? When I want to go out into the streets, I want to drown myself in the mights touch. I'm never going to sleep again, till the day comes to collect my sin "Just take me home. It's not worth the effort. Just take me home." I've spent many nights in this very cty. It was worthless last time, and it will be this evening. Thank you and goodnight.

No way. They don't sound anything like Botch. You mights of well have just said Sonic Youth.

Ok, I see you were referring to former members now being in TAAS

Botch aren't bad. I haven't heard a great deal of them though, not much at all really.

But they're not comparable to These Arms Are Snakes, other than a member or two.

i have easter and to be honest i havent really given it much listen. i bought it a while back and was underwhelmed by my first listen. it went on the shelf and never got played again but i am not dismissing them as shit. far from it, i just read so much about how great they were and they didnt live up to it for me, a good band, not a great one.... i could say that for most stuff ive bought from the jade tree label tho....

ill put it on again later in the car tho..........its in my hand now
