  1. Grippe

    Grippe is the debut album from post-hardcore band, Jawbox. It was released in May 1991 on Dischord Records. Recorded throughout the year of 1990, Jawbox's first effort was generally brushed off by critics as a sloppy but promising debut. According to Allmusic, it was "essentially recorded after getting enough songs together to fill out a 12" chunk of vinyl" calling it "an enjoyable, albeit introspectively brutal record." Reviewer Andy Kellman also described the music included in the album as the marriage of the "earlier crunchy side of Joy Division with Throb Throb-era Naked Raygun" while highlighting their cover of the Joy Division track "Something Must Break". The track "Consolation Prize" appeared in a demo cassette-tape that was floating around the hardcore scene at the time but was a harder, faster more upbeat version than what appeared in the album with a blazing guitar solo.
