Anti-Matter compilation

(Mouthpiece photo stolen from Brooklyn Vegan)
It would appear that the past couple of weeks have been chock-full of 90's hardcore, what with Burning Fight taking place in Chicago this past weekend, and the associated book releasing via Revelation Records this Wednesday. I've been listening to Anti-Matter a lot as a result. I'll put it side by side with any number of compilations released in the past 30 years. This record is loaded top to bottom with a great cross-section of the bigger touring HC and emo bands from the early & mid 90's. What other one place can you get music from:

-Quicksand
-Farside
-Garden Variety
-Chamberlain
-Sense Field
-Lifetime
-Mouthpiece

In late 2007, Norm Arenas & Revelation Records released The Anti-Matter Anthology, which compiled a huge chunk of his hugely-influential zine under one cover. My only beef is that Revelation didn't reissue this record to tie-in with the book release. Oh, well...their loss is your gain.

There's no doubt that I'm high on Anti-Matter because of when I listened to it and the strong East Coast bias to the band selection. But I still say this is totally crucial...a must hear!

Do you know about this? It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.

Somebody should tell em about the sushi cafe, which is conspicuously absent.

Does it is a emo band? I didn't know it. I don't care about it, I will but the newest disc, my girlfriend is an emo style and she's a depressing girl but she knows how to make a blowjob, so I will buy her Anti-Matte to improve our relationship, isn't? 23jj
