What I like about Washington DC

A Listmania! list by goeievent
 
Repeater + 3 Songs
1.  Repeater + 3 Songs by Fugazi
The list author says:
  "Distorted, minimalist, edgy, explosive. A semi-reggae rhythm section and chords no one else uses."
9.47   Used & New from: 3.65
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

The Argument
2.  The Argument by Fugazi
The list author says:
  "Their most recent (and possibly their last) album could well be their best. More complex and melodic than Repeater."
Used & New from: 5.18
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

I Against I
3.  I Against I by Bad Brains
The list author says:
  "Now based in New York, they used to live in DC. Consummate musicianship that fuses hardcore and reggae to produce great abrasive melodies. A classic."
11.69   Used & New from: 4.04
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Quickness
4.  Quickness by Bad Brains
The list author says:
  "A bit slower than I Against I, Quickness anticipates rap-rock, Faith No More and such like. Powerful and soulful."
Used & New from: 3.58
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Hot Fast Union
5.  Hot Fast Union by Bluetip
The list author says:
  "As elegant as post-hardcore gets. Like At the Drive-In without the awkward bits."
11.87   Used & New from: 4.33
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

POLYMER
6.  POLYMER by Bluetip
The list author says:
  "On the boundary between hardcore and indie rock. Great interplay between acerbic and melodic guitars; hardcore-style guitar breaks and a new wave feel. Stylish and elegant."
7.42   Used & New from: 1.94
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

House Of
7.  House Of by Girls Against Boys
The list author says:
  "Slinky post-hardcore with two bass players and industrial influences. They too relocated from DC to New York."
8.99   Used & New from: 0.20
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

You Can't Fight What You Can't See
8.  You Can't Fight What You Can't See by Girls Against Boys
The list author says:
  "More of the same, plus a track with a Velvet Underground vibe."
8.00
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Pony Express Record
9.  Pony Express Record by Shudder To Think
The list author says:
  "Very complex rock, with frequently jazz-tinged, stop-start guitars, lots of tempo changes and a boyish voice. Persevere and you will detect some very good melodies."
Used & New from: 7.00
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Bipartite
10.  Bipartite by Aina
The list author says:
  "OK, this is a bit tenuous, as the band are from Barcelona (!) However, Washingtonian J Robbins (see below) produces. Oh yeah, the sound: Fugazi meet AC/DC!"
21.95   Used & New from: 9.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Mission: Control!
11.  Mission: Control! by Burning Airlines
The list author says:
  "Fresh, melodic, abrasive post-punk, with odd rhythms. J Robbins sings (his voice is excellent) and produces here. Overall, like a heavier XTC."
19.14   Used & New from: 2.40
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Identikit
12.  Identikit by Burning Airlines
The list author says:
  "More complex than Mission: Control; J Robbins loves to look beyond the usual punk rhythms."
4.69   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Polymer
13.  Polymer by Bluetip
The list author says:
  "From the same recording sessions as No. 5 (above) and just as good."
Used & New from: 2.99

Open
14.  Open by Channels
The list author says:
  "Band formed by J Robbins after Burning Airlines split. This record is a bit less abrasive than BA's output, but otherwise similar."
8.99   Used & New from: 0.45
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)
