Antioch Arrow - In Love With Jetts
Jumping ahead a bit here because when I started collecting records in a real way I was listening to a lot of punk music. Misfits, Black Flag and Dead Kennedys were my way in, but it was contemporary bands like Fugazi, Drive Like Jehu and The Nation Of Ulysses that encouraged me to start bands of a similarly chaotic nature. I loved Antioch Arrow. They didn't seem to be distracted by anything other than their own weird trajectory. It was also crossing the threshold between hardcore and improvisation and it opened me up to so many other things. I was pen pals with Aaron Montaigne in my teens. We often wrote cut-ups and occult poems to each other. Very serious young men.
