    Drive Like Jehu

    • Year Released: 1991
    Drive Like Jehu is the eponymously-titled debut album by the San Diego post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu, released in 1991 by Cargo Music and Headhunter Records. Though not as highly regarded as their second and final album Yank Crime, the album did gain the notice of the emerging noise rock and math rock movements, which would later lead many fans to regard Drive Like Jehu as a link between these genres. The album also helped to attract the attention of major record labels, leading both Drive Like Jehu and guitarist John Reis' other band Rocket From the Crypt to sign a lucrative deal with Interscope Records. Ned Raggett of Allmusic gave Drive Like Jehu 4½ stars out of 5, remarking that "The Rick Froberg/John Reis guitar team sound like they've been dipped in battery acid, wired to a power station, and let absolutely loose, screaming, nervous riffs piled on top of each other and taking off for Mars. Froberg's own wild scream singing suits it perfectly, sounding like something's about to give and leave nothing in its wake ... Everything is done in the service of intensity and emotion, winding everything up to explode and then explode again". All tracks by Drive Like Jehu

    Yank Crime

    • Year Released: 1994
    Yank Crime is the second and final album by the San Diego, California post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu, released in 1994 by Interscope Records. It was the band's major-label debut and its artwork was created by singer/guitarist Rick Froberg. The band toured in support of the album but then quietly disbanded the following year as the members moved off to pursue other interests. In later years, as guitarist John Reis found international recognition with his band Rocket from the Crypt, a gradually growing audience began to pinpoint Drive Like Jehu's music as a catalyst for the eclectic San Diego music scene and the emerging national emocore scene of the 1990s. In 2003 Reis re-released Yank Crime on his Swami Records label, including on it the songs from the band's "Hand Over Fist" / "Bullet Train to Vegas" single and the original version of "Sinews" that had appeared on the compilation Head Start to Purgatory. Ned Raggett of Allmusic gave Yank Crime 4½ stars out of 5, calling it "as worthy and awesome as its predecessor, losing not a jot in the change from independent to major label status." He also remarked on the album's significance to the emo genre, saying "Perhaps even more
