Yeah but I figured neither are a few you guys posted so I might as well add some more that were related. Though I would say Fastbacks aren't, and I'd add Green River, Malfunkshun, Bundle of Hiss in the same category as Swallow, Cat Butt, and Blood Circus, see now I'm glad I added more because the boundaries are never totally clear and people have different opinions.

Actually I haven't finished researching these bands myself, though I could probably at least do some of that. Some of those bands only came out with singles, or might not have anything easily available on the internet, because despite what people say, the internet doesn't
have everything, and these bands are underground. Actually, that's probably how I found out the internet doesn't have nearly everything, by searching for hours and hours for any info or music in these bands. I doubt they actually have download links to that much. Well the Northwest Noise blog has some. Seriously, go through that whole blog, as it will tell you more info than I could, and that's where I got most of this stuff anyway http://myhairsprayqueen.blogspot.com/
, and the Lamestain blog as well http://lamestainnorthwest.blogspot.com/
. Ok I updated the first post I posted a bit. Oh you know what, there are a few facebook pages for this sort of thing, I'll add you to them. I need to look around them more, maybe they have more info.
