Independently minded and adhering to the old-school D.I.Y. punk mentality, West Coast punk pop trio Jawbreaker's street-smart - yet poetic - lyrics, spirited musicality, and marathon live shows put them a cut above contemporaries like Green Day and Blink-182. After a series of EPs and singles, guitarist / singer Blake Schwarzenbach, bassist Chris Bauermeister and drummer Adam Pfahler released the band's debut album, Unfun, in 1989. Independent label San Francisco Tupelo Records signed the group the following year, releasing Bivouac in 1991 and their breakthrough record, 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, in 1993. As 1995 saw the first in a three-record deal with DGC, fans were split over the band's newfound success and move to a major label. But Jawbreaker were undeterred, releasing the influential Dear You, a powerhouse collection of punk, grunge, and emo that paved the way for groups like Jimmy Eat World and Dashboard Confessional. Sadly, the group disbanded in the late-'90s, leaving 2002's Etc., a collection of all of the group's non-album material, as their last will and testament. Dear You was reissued by Blackball in 2004. ~ James Christopher Monger .
