Post-Hardcore Flashback : Karate

A friend was asking about old Emo bands (what I still prefer to call post-hardcore but you say po-tay-toe I say po-tah-toe) and then my head went into a frenzy of bands I loved / played shows with / was friends with back in the early '90s.

In 1996 Dahlia Seed went on our one and only U.S. tour and there are certain tapes we had in the van that I will never forget. Karate was one of them and this song in particular makes me think of 1996 fondly. Even if it was 5 boys in a cramped van and me for 6 weeks.

The Shamen - Something About You

I can't say I was ever a big fan of this Scottish group but my better half picked up this single at a record shop over the weekend and I can't seem to get it out of my head. The chorus has such a great power pop hook. Sure the lyrics are a bit basic but the song itself is really catchy.
