Yank Crime

Drive Like Jehu

1994

Yank Crime

Album Summary

Yank Crime is the second and final album by the San Diego, California post-hardcore band Drive Like Jehu, released in 1994 by Interscope Records. It was the band's major-label debut and its artwork was created by singer/guitarist Rick Froberg. The band toured in support of the album but then quietly disbanded the following year as the members moved off to pursue other interests. In later years, as guitarist John Reis found international recognition with his band Rocket from the Crypt, a gradually growing audience began to pinpoint Drive Like Jehu's music as a catalyst for the eclectic San Diego music scene and the emerging national emocore scene of the 1990s. In 2003 Reis re-released Yank Crime on his Swami Records label, including on it the songs from the band's "Hand Over Fist" / "Bullet Train to Vegas" single and the original version of "Sinews" that had appeared on the compilation Head Start to Purgatory.

I actually quite like it. Unexpected 4. Actually reminds me alot if the coarser songs of The Strokes. "Luau" is pretty retarded though, 7:45 sounds like fucking FlightReacts https://youtu.be/x4LWEvEKT_g "Super Unison" is great, but why did the first minute have to sampled from one tone of a fucking air raid siren. Sometimes it's just bad noise, but most times it's actually fucking incredible. I'm actually torn on giving it a 5 or a 4 now. Because obviously it's not perfect, it has some very weird sound-choices, but goddamn the energy is so good. Fuck you it's a 5.

Oh man, for something classified as "emo" this album sure has teeth. It's vicious in all the best ways. If emo still sounded like this, I'd absolutely be an emo kid. Froburg's vocals howl at you from the speakers with all the passion and fire that you get with all the great punk vocalists. The guitars are wielded like dueling power saws artfully slicing apart the melody and recombining it into something beautiful and vulnerably raw. Basically, this album is everything that I love about punk and hardcore but with the added layer of emotional openness and honesty. Loved it. Couldn't love it more. Wish I could give it 6 stars.

Post-hardcore punk that I haven't really listened to before. Definitely in the vein of Fugazi. It's ahead of it's time in sound, the next logical step after Fugazi. This is the stepping stone to some more popular bands in the late 90s/early 2000s like At the Drive-In. The distorted sounds and longer songs won't be everyone, but this is a great marriage of punk and noise rock.

And once again I got an education on some music (post hardcore) I thought I knew but really didn't. Doing some reading, I saw how some people label the sound as screamo...I got a kick out of that. Like thrash or metalcore, I love the manic musical energy but don't love the scream singing. I also love the intricacy to their playing (much more than thrash) but don't love when it gets all smashed together in a ball of noise. On this album, the vocals and scratch/grating effects on guitar get to be a little too much after awhile. Or right from the start - I didn't love the opening track, too much chaos. Still, these guys are very good at what they do and I can see why other bands in the genre cite their influence. I think their creativity and skill are really on display on Do you Compute, Luau, and Hand over Fist. At times I really loved this album, other times meh. Maybe my rating would go higher if I listened to it 10+ times. For now, certainly respect but not adoration.

Hardcore/Post-hardcore is not for me, could barely make it through the first track, gave Super Unison a shot, made it about two minutes through. Just not for my sensibilities. I can certainly see how this had an effect on the genre however, I get Thursday without the melody vibes from this album.

Sometimes an album just clicks, it defies time and preferences. Though I was not an immediate fan of Yank Crime, it did grow on me over the course of a few weeks in the summer of 1994. I fell in love with the way the songs built from a strange whirring feedback like in Super Unison to punching you in the face when you're least expecting it like a full blast of cold air. But then there's melodic single-notes over a foreboding bass line that builds and fizzles like in the instrumental New Intro. The range of emotion contained in this album is undeniable. There are a ton of surprises buried within these tracks. Luau is absolutely incredible as is Super Union. These long songs (7+ mins.) encapsulate a wealth of ups-and-downs and create tension, release, and melancholic beauty by using powerfully scripted chaos along the way. A lot has changed since '94. Back then the music scene was completely different, CD's reigned, music diversity was hard to come by and the digital revolution had barely begun. Cell phones weren't a thing and even pagers were a novelty. Today, nearly 30 years later, I still find myself searching out this album to listen to. I was fortunate enough to see DLJ reunited for a few shows in 2016. Part of me wishes they'd get back together and release new music, but the other part of me knows this album was perfect for the time it was released, and that time will never be replicated.

One of the more important proto-emo albums of all time; with every hook that a guitar riff would bring and the yearning and screaming that comes from the vocal, Yank Crime should be considered as one of the greatest punk albums of the 90s. If there was one album to end things on and plant a flag into the ground of what was to be the future of punk, this is the one.

Sometimes an album comes along that you've never heard of (even when you pride yourself on knowing some obscure sh*t) and just knocks you over. This was one of those albums. The energy her was equaled by the musicianship. I looked at the genre tags for this out of curiosity and it's labeled as "post-hardcore." I can definitely hear the punk influence and the Sonic Youth influence. Favorite tracks: All of them. Most Played track: "Do you compute"

I did enjoy this. I never liked the term “math rock,” though. I like the idea of combining odd time signatures with raw energy. It just… went on too long. The album felt like it should have been 40 minutes. But with CDs, everyone was for a while all about releases being more than 45 minutes. Still, I wish the band came out with more stuff. I would have liked to have heard them evolve. So like a 3.6, rounds up to a 4.

Rock genres can be hard to pin down. DLJ is described as post-hardcore, math rock, post-punk, and emo. While they don't sound like what I think of as emo, apparently they were on the leading edge of the genre's evolution before it reached its heights in the early 00s. And I had to get further into the album before it crystallized for me where they belonged. Because I hated the first track and it was really hard to get through. I thought I was going to have to tell pretentious-ass how much I disliked one of his favorites. Things got better though, as the screaming and noise began to take shape rather than just existing for its own sake. pretentious-ass also recommended giving it multiple listens - that did not help the first track (still awful), but it did help the rest. I'm glad I powered through the first song because I do like the rest of the album. Exploring deeper into the references on the Wikipedia page, I found an article that helped understand DLJ's place in the bigger rock picture, placing them firmly among post-hardcore contemporaries like Glassjaw and At the Drive-In. I really liked ATDI, but never explored the genre much further. The article also included Fugazi as an early highlight of the genre, as well as Brand New, who I am familiar with and a band that does make sense as fitting on the border between emo and post-hardcore. I listened to a bit of Glassjaw, and revisited ATDI. I still really love ATDI, even though their songs are either completely nonsensical or at a higher level of poetry than I can understand. But the sound is so great. DLJ just can't match that, but I'm still happy they pushed me to revisit more of the genre. I think "Yank Crime" probably deserves a 3, but there were enough moments I really dug in between less-stellar stuff to allow for a slightly generous 4. Maybe I'm just in the mood for screaming?

Another important piece in the post-hardcore puzzle. Drive Like Jehu leans heavy into making more noise than their contemporaries and doing it in a way that feels like calculated chaos. Guitars drive and clash against each other like cars of a demolition derby, occasionally playing in sync playing in a satisfyingly fast way to deliver the hook. It's a vicious and biting record that accomplishes it's sound in spades.

This is badass. Not really into emo and screamo, which this album apparently helped beget, but to my ear this sounds like noise rock meets post-rock, which is right up my alley. This is another solid 4.5. Possibly more listens would yield a 5. Fave track - "Luau" maybe? Or "Do You Compute"....

I've never listened to this band before and now I don't really know why, this is pretty great. I've never been a huge fan of hardcore outside of Fugazi but they kind of always felt like their own thing and I've never dug much deeper, I've barely listened to Minor Threat. In my head I'm always kind of looking for pop hooks so I prefer the punkier end of loud, fast non metal stuff. I'll probably still prefer that but I'm tempted to explore more now. Also I love Sonic Youth (a band that are not strangers to a pop hooks) and I can hear some of the same kind of dissonance that feels like one of their signatures here.

i'm digging a lot of this album. same scene as the slightly later (i think) at the drive in (and much later, mars volta) echoes of the entire future screemo genre can be heard here. put some operatic polish on it and tighten the production quality and you have something resembling system of a down buuuuut you're gonna want to skip at least the first 30-40 seconds track five super unison. i'm feeling generous so i'll call it an homage to the endless and ear splitting space odyssey 2001 scene

3.6 - I never learned how to connect with math rock on an emotional level. Definitely not sure what these songs are about - it’s likely a lot deeper and smarter than my measly mins can comprehend. Still, I can appreciate the musicianship on this album and enjoy it on an intellectual level.

I liked it. I felt like it was an influence to some of the bands I listened in middle school, like At the Drive-In or The Fall of Troy. The sound here, compared to other punk bands from the era begins to feel a little more complex, like it's taking some things from progressive rock. And while the musicians from Drive Like Jehu aren't virtuosos, they do a pretty good job making the album flow.

I really liked the first track "Here Come the Rome Plows." My immediate thought was "this is prog punk!" Very dissonant and loved the opening bass line. "Do You Compute" made me think of Tool. I was liking everything until the first 30 seconds of "Super Unison" - thanks for hurting my ears. As the album went on, the word "relentless" came to mind. Too much feedback, too much dissonance, too much screaming. There were a lot of great moments, but I think I can only take this band in small doses. Rating it a three from sheer exhaustion.

I'm glad I gave this one a chance and listened to it all the way through. I try to listen to each of these openly as I attempt to scrub away preconceptions and past experiences with music, but it's often difficult to do so. In this case, as soon as I heard the vocals, I recoiled a little because I generally don't like listening to screamed and shrieked lyrics. I appreciate much about punk and post-punk and the countless offshoots and subgenres, but most of the time I don't very much enjoy a lot of that music on a consistent basis. While the screaming did get to me at times, the musicianship on this album is outstanding. They compose, perform, and record superbly well. This project is helping me in so many ways. Play on!

Post-hardcore is a real borderline genre for me. Most of my fav music is heavy and I listen a fair chunk of *traditional* hardcore, but this tends toward non-Seattle alternative sounds too much for my liking. It gets up and going, there are cool riffs and passages... but only for brief flashes. On the other hand, it descends into downright noise allllll the time. The singing is pretty cool and I can hear the potential, but it feels like an idea that wasn't fully fleshed out (I know such a later comparison isn't really fair, but see Clowns for this vocal style perfected). Drummer is well and truly on top of the game though, nothing virtuosic but he holds the entire thing together imo. I guess my biggest criticism is the song structure itself: it feels like the average song is 5% intro, 25% guts, then 70% long-winded dissonant outro. This formula gets old at 53min. Still, I tapped my foot enough that it gets a pretty easy 3. If it was half an hour it'd probably be a 4 tbh. 3/5.

This album starts off like a tornado and smacks you in the chops. It’s loud and brash and in your face. It’s thrashy and punky and a little bit screamy. Normally this combination would induce an excited curiosity from myself and these tracks did just that...but that was all. I just can’t find anything worthwhile or standoutish. The songs speed along happily enough, but leave you feeling unsatisfied and with an empty void. 2 Stars!

Musically, they had some decent stuff but I wasn’t a fan of the vocals and many of their songs just sounded like noise.

I enjoy the musical side of this album. I'm not the biggest fan of the vocals but it isn't too bad and is very fitting for the genre. My biggest gripe with this is the length of the songs. 2 songs over 9 minutes and another two over 7 is a bit much. Just gets stale after a little. I really like the first 4 and a half minutes on Luau but after that there were still 5 more minutes to suffer through. Sinews however I think does justify the length.

very heavy. good distorted guitars, raw vocals. solid bass that grounds otherwise chaotic arrangements - reminds me of duff mckagan. very noisy and grating, i am sure it would really appeal to someone who enjoys that sorta stuff. made me want to listen to appetite for destruction (which i immediately did after finishing this project)

Olipas kuraa, huutamista ja räminää. Wikipedian mukaan post-hardcorea. Alkaa käymään selväksi, että post-punk ja ilmeisesti myös post-hardcore aiheuttavat meikäläisessä aika vahvoja inhoreaktioita. Ainoa biisi joka vähän herätti positiivisia fiiliksiä oli Luau, mutta ehkä sekin alkoi vain tuntua tutulta pitkän kestonsa ansiosta. Kenelle tätä oikein tehdään?

Not good. Kinda bad, actually. I'd give it 1.5 stars if I could, but I can't. It's really not the worst thing ever, but it's definitely not worth listening to.

One of the hardest to get through albums I have heard so far on this list. While others I have rated low for being boring or not taking any chances, this is the first one I have gotten where it felt like the music was actively trying to be as annoying as possible which REALLY bugged me. Luau is just painful noise for the last couple of minutes. and Super Unison has an irritating dog whistle going off for the first 30 seconds of the song. While these songs stood out to me in a negative way, the album as a whole did not feature any successful riffs, melodies, and moments that made this worth listening to in spite of those agonizing parts (especially considering it is over an hour long). I do not consider myself a fan of dark/abstract emo rock so this album clearly is not for me, but it is hard for me to see any redeeming qualities that someone would get out of this even if they are a fan of the genre. I cannot deny that they took chances here (which keeps it from being at the very bottom of my list), but this is one I would never want to come back to. 1.5/5.

Why am I listening to something that was about 20 years too late? It's like Punk had taken that long to reach these guys. One moment they were strumming out Beach Boys tunes and then someone burst in holding a copy of 'God Save the Queen' circa 1993 and said "have you heard these guys?" 1001Albums seems to have a warped idea on what is ground-breaking. There are like 150 pages devoted to the 60's and 200 pages to the 90's. Which was the most ground-breaking and influential decade? Mmmmm.....

Shame on the list for wanting to steal 1 hour and 9 minutes of my wicked little life. But I maintained the upper hand: I stopped even trying to listen after what seemed like the 15th song.

Man, I connected with no part of this album. Felt like an hour plus of just screaming and I wanted to scream back at it. Not an enjoyable listen for me… but cheer to those who dig this album!

Only listened to parts of the first five tracks before fleeing this assault on my ears. Usually the only good thing that can be said about songs and albums like these is that they're really short. Not so this monstrosity.

The perfect album.........if I had I been playing THPS. Not bad but too garage punk for me. The first 4 songs felt like one. Needs more variety.
