With Dave

Somewhere in the middle of cementing their place as one of Washington D.C.’s most revered and seminal artists, SWIZ managed to churn out this EP for Jade Tree as their final output. And what a way to go. Raspy, abrasive, chaotic post-punk from the Capitol City – the kind that made them famous, only with Dave.

No Punches Pulled

Very few anthology compilations can hold a candle to this one. SWIZ blazed a path for future post-punk flag-wavers in only 32 songs and a handful of records, and here, for the first time ever in one place, even the most glutted hardcore completists will find something to celebrate. Elaborate packaging by SWIZ guitarist and respected graphic designer Jason Farrell, countless photos, complete lyrics, and of course, all of the band’s classic recordings on one disc. Absolutely essential.

Having recently relocated to the Left Coast, mind-bending guitarist Jason Farrell – SWIZ / SWEETBELLY FREAKDOWN – has discovered the fountain of youth. While refuses to reveal the exact location, we suspect it lies somewhere between Venice and Long Beach. Do you see what a pair of lo-top Jazz can do for a man…
