"For Your Own Special Sweetheart" on Atlantic Records

One of the brightest releases of 1994 was the debut Atlantic release, "For your own special sweetheart" by Jawbox. This D.C. band is no stranger to the studio, which comes through is strong vocals on top of well-thought-out melodies. The music is a great break from the grunge

copycats that pervade the music scene of the 90's. Ted Nicely (better known for his work with Fugazi) joins Jawbox on the production side of things. If you haven't given Jawbox a closer listen to, take the time now to reward yourself.
