Yeah, I just heard that. It's sick! I'm probably going to buy the CD tomorrow. They're sick! I love the notes they use for the guitars at the beginning of FtW, and I love open note B and A tuned guitars.
HWM consistently ruled, as have the side projects. Against me! used to be great, but they're an embarrassment now. Haven't heard DM.
I'd probably take Chicago over Gainesville, if we count Dear Landlord. Naked Raygun, Pegboy and Big Black are crucial.
HWM has always been one of my favourites. I actually like the Rumbleseat side project more due to my affinity for everything folk punk and my strong belief that "Rumbleseat is dead" is the truest folk punk album. Reinventing Axl Rose ftw btw
