KISS THE BOTTLE, from Bordeaux/France, stands at the crossroad of JAWBREAKER influences and what some people used to call “french emo” in the ’90s. The idea behind the band is to try to avoid the modern pathos of the d.i.y. scene, and the desire to throw a political stance far from the clichés, mixed with the simple pleasure of playing music with your best friends when you’re in your mid/late ’30s. Former members of PEU ETRE, ALCATRAZ, AMANDA WOODWARD, THE FLYING WORKERS, and FINGERPRINT. Comes in nice designed silkscreen covers.
