i had to post another before i hit the sack. my bed i mean...
this band is famous in the indie/emo scene of the 90's for really going out there and branching the two genres together. it's a great and weird mix all at the same time. this is also the start of the kinsella family line of bands/artists that followed. to even try to explain the treeline would be difficult, so here is a picture made by some people to help those who are interested. http://www.joanfrc.com/bands.html
i personally have something from everyone of those artists because i'm crazy like that when it comes to music. but to go back to the main point here, the band that started that entire league of extraordinary music is none other than Cap'n Jazz.
Tim Kinsella and his brother Mike along with a few others such as Davey VonBohlen who would later go on to begin The Promise Ring, played emotional rock without all the hubfub that many bands tend to drown us in today. this music is inspiring along with it actually being pretty freekin' technical and downright amazing in it's time signatures and flow. this music became the blueprint for the mathy rock/emo stuff that is for some reason becoming more and more popular in the underground today. heck, Algernon Cadwallader almost sounds like a tribute band in many ways...
so here for ya to dig is their entire discography. titled Analphabetapolothology, this collection of songs spans the bands entire career and ends with live tracks taken from their final show in their native home town of chicago, illinoise which is famous in it's own right for bringing us many great artist we listen to all the time today.

I really like Tim's little kid voice in these songs from so long ago. (not that long ago...)
