Jawbox were a hardcore punk trio from Washington DC from the Dischord stable who formed in 1989. Jawbox was their fourth album and was released in 1995. By this time, the band had expanded to a quartet. It was produced by John Agnello who has helmed the controls for the likes of Dinosaur Jr. Their previous album, For Your Own Special Sweetheart was regarded as fairly straightforward representation of their sound whilst Jawbox is regarded as more experimental - basic live tracks augmented by toy drum kits, Hammond B3 and Saxophone. It was originally released on major label Atlantic subsidiary, TAG. This reissue is brought to you lovingly by Dischord.
