OOP Corner: Caustic Soda - .bleak youngkid dis-knowledge

Posted: Sunday, May 16, 2010 by Fashion Munx in Labels: ,

Caustic Soda will probably go down as even less than a footnote in music history. The name will probably be familiar to some as a number of the band members went on to form the indie rock band Blueline Medic who were signed to Fueled By Ramen and released a number of records including a split with Ted Leo and The Pharmacists.

Caustic Soda however formed in Melbourne in 1994 they were probably most well known as Australia's answer to Jawbreaker. Truthfully, for all the people that seem to love Jawbreaker you'd expect there to be a lot of Jawbreaker clones out there and a few that did it well. The only ones I can really recall though are Jolt who were from the East Bay and these guys. These guys did it really well as their long out of print debut album .bleak youngkid dis-knowledge shows. If you consider yourself a fan of 90's punk/indie/underground or of Jawbreaker I suggest you peep this. Enjoy:


  1. Thanks for this! I love Music from the Motion Picture, but I don't know this one. I'm looking forward to hearing it! P.S. thanks for the Jolt recommendation. It's great stuff.
