OOP Corner: The Crush - Here Is Where I Cross My Fingers

Posted: Tuesday, March 20, 2012 by Fashion Munx in Labels: ,

The Crush were a pop punk band from Minnesota that really really wanted to be Jawbreaker. While no Blake Schwarzenbachs they did a pretty damn good job of it. However, I guess imitation only gets you so far because they released two LPs, one 7" and made an appearance on a Jawbreaker tribute and then faded into obscurity. Today I am posting their second LP because I believe it to be the stronger of the two. It received slightly larger release on Billy Joe's Adeline Records and it saw the band developing a bit of their own identity. Jason Miller, who I believe played guitar and sang in The Crush (it may have been bass) now plays in the alt-country tinged Evening Rig so you should check them out too.

This was out there on other blogs I think (at least before the recent purges) but once again this is a high quality rip from my own collection. Enjoy!

    Thanks for this post. I'm not yet familiar with this group other than for what you've written, but I try to listen to & collect all music that has a Minnesota connection.
