Jawbreaker- Bootleg 5/29/93

This is a bootleg of a Jawbreaker performance about six months before 24 Hour Revenge Therapy came out. The set is full of, then, mostly new material and Blake talks about the origins of some of the "new" songs ("The Boat Dreams From the Hill", "Jinx Removing", "Boxcar", "Kiss the Bottle"), which is great to get an explanation straight from the sorce. The performance itself is really solid, playing and almost singing every note perfectly but that's to be expected. There's also an incredible version of "Kiss the Bottle" (a b-side from 24 Hour) that really does the song a lot more justice than the version on the Etc. compilation.
