When you buy your records as you're going along (instead of cherry-picking them off eBay 15 years after the fact, the way most of the other blogs do), you wind up with some odd choices. For instance, I have no real idea why I ended up with a compilation 7-inch of some vaguely Jawbox/Superchunk-ish D.C. bands, yet here it is. I think it had something to do with the Holly Rollers t-shirt that Kevin from Creature Did wore once, so I figured a comp 7" would be an easy way to see what they were about.
As it turns out, the Edsel song on here is the one that I like the most (I think I have another Edsel 7", too-- the one on Jade Tree-- though I'd have to find it). Holy Rollers are OK, I guess, though mildly self-important, and the song from Trusty (the first ever non-D.C. band on Dischord) is decent enough pop-punk, amusing for the first couple of listens. I seem to remember that the Corm track gets better as it goes along, but it sounds bad and starts out horribly, so I didn't bother ripping it.
