(1997, Second Nature Productions)

The debut album by a band who always seemed to be the perfect distillation of ’emo’ in my head, by which I do mean the proper stuff, not the nonsense that came later. Heartfelt melodies crashing into discordant noise.

It might not hold up quite as well as their later work, but it’s still a cracking album, and well worth checking out, if you haven’t already.

WATCH: I can’t really find any reviews or articles looking back on this, but I did find a fun video of them playing a tiny gig in 1997
