Angel Hair

I'm back from vacation and I'm ready to rock with more entries...

In the Hush Harbor article I mentioned emo in the '90s when it was less commercial and more of an indie hardcore movement. Angel Hair, Heroin, Clikitat Ikatowi, Mohinder and Antioch Arrow, along with the record label Gravity, defined the Sand Diego sound of the mid-'90s. It was loud, spastic, screamed hardcore noise with occasional moments of calm before the chaos erupted again. Angel Hair brought anger and rage to the forefront of their music in a way not too many band before them had. This photo is of Angel Hair live in the basement of the Goat House from around 1995.

  • Self-titled 7" (Gravity)
  • Insect Mortality LP/CD (Gravity)
  • Pregnant With the Senior Class LP/CD (Comp of all material, 1997, Gravity)
