  1. Vitreous Humor

    Vitreous Humor were a Midwest emo band, formed in the late 1980s by Danny Pound, Brad Allen, and Dan Benson. Originally a quartet, the band had a revolving door of bassists until in 1993, Allen opted to play the bass. The group stayed as a trio for a year until the band took in Brooks Rice as their bassist, allowing Allen to return to his role of guitarist. Their sound was an angular, noisy take on indie rock, often juxtaposing clean, jangly chords and minimal guitar lines with dissonant, distorted power chords, much in the vein of Sonic Youth. The band's first release was a self-titled 7" record, with three songs. Consequently, this was Crank! Records' first release as well. They also released a split 7", sharing their soon-to-be hit "Why Are You So Mean To Me?" with fellow Crank! band Boy's Life and their song "Temporary". Their closest thing to a full-length release while they were still together is a self-titled EP, recorded with producer Bob Weston and released in 1995. The strength of this EP granted the band a lot of publicity, and tours with Archers of Loaf, Urge Overkill and Everclear, while the band was hounded with contracts from Elektra Records and Maverick Records. During this period the band recorded several tracks with Dave Trumfio in Chicago and released a 2 song 45 EP on Mute Records, which barely saw the light of day. The song "My Midget" from this session eventually made it to the band's final album, "Posthumous"
