Squirrel Bait - Self-Titled

I believe the kids called this "post hardcore", which was a label that never really made sense to me. That sounds like it assumes hardcore ended, and I never thought that true. Anyway, Squirrel Bait comes from Kentucky, and don't exactly blow the doors off the double wide with this 1985 release.

When I Fall


  1. I think Squirrel Bait led to "post rock" when some of its members later formed Slint. This one blew MY doors off when it came out, especially "Sun God" and "Hammering So Hard". Hardcore was definitely alive and well in '85.
