Anyone who grew up bored and alienated in the '90s or who's got a special love for '90s punk-rock could probably tell you a thing or two about Jawbreaker. In case you missed the boat, though, former Jawbreaker drummer Adam Pfahler has been reissuing and remastering Jawbreaker's catalogue. Last year he gave us a spot-on touch-up for Bivouac and now, on October 14th, he's looking to drop a remastered cut of 24-Hour Revenge Therapy via his Blackball Records.

I could go on and on about this album and why you should pick it up -- how perfectly it describes and then emulates feelings of alienation and impotence and nostalgia; how poignant the lyrics are, how there's never been a punk rock drummer like Pfahler or a bassist like Chris Bauermeister, or how Steve Albini's production is spot-on -- but that's better left for another day. All the uninitiated need to know is that this is the definitive version of the definitive album of the definitive 90s punk-rock band. All the true believers need to know is that the mix sounds stellar and there are four never-heard-before alternate takes of "The Boat Dreams from the Hill," "Indictment," "Do You Still Hate Me?" and "Jinx Removing."
