Foxhole is a post-rock band from Bowling Green, Kentucky. They first began regular rehearsals in November 2000. The brainchild of founding members Adam Moore and Nathan Mcbroom, and finding practice space in various places on Western Kentucky University's campus, Foxhole was heavily influenced by other Kentucky bands such as Slint and June of '44. The first performance featured Nathan on guitar and bass, Adam on guitar, Matthew and Joey on drums and percussion, Justin playing glockenspiel, and two of the bandmates' girlfriends providing sparse vocals. The second performance featured the aforementioned players together with Derek on bass, Greg improvising on trumpet and sans girlfriends. By their third performance, the lineup had solidified to Nathan, Adam, Justin, Derek, Matt, and Greg. The band initially focused on melding experimental sounds with melody. A staple of early performances was a fully improvised song randomly inserted into the set list, and which often featured several homemade instruments, including the "juggophone", "shatterophone", "topophone", and "pyrophone", which utilized the sounds of beating water jugs, breaking bottles, clinking pot tops, and micing fireworks, respectively. They also made frequent use of the sounds of a signal generator. Gradually, Foxhole integrated slightly more traditional song structures and held to typical instruments, dispensing mostly with the use of gimmick instrumentation. Songs typically featured a gradual build in intensity, and featured rare and unaugmented vocals.
Chavez is an American alternative rock band from New York, formed in 1993. After a period of inactivity, the band reformed in 2006. They released two independent non-charting albums in the mid-1990s. Guitarist Matt Sweeney has confirmed that the band is working on its first new recordings since 1996. Chavez was formed from the ashes of Wider, and was inspired by the sonic approach of math rock pioneers Slint and the post-punk outfit Mission of Burma. Chavez utilizes angular, asymmetrical riffs and dramatic dynamic shifts. The band is fronted by guitarist Matt Sweeney, who was previously a member of Skunk and Wider, and played with Guided by Voices. Drummer James Lo also came from Wider; the band is rounded out by guitarist Clay Tarver and bassist Scott Marshall. The band quickly gained a following in the New York underground scene following the release of their first single "Repeat the Ending". Their debut album Gone Glimmering was released in 1995 and was followed by the EP Pentagram Ring. The music video for the song "Break Up Your Band" aired in an episode of MTV's Beavis and Butt-head, and the band toured with Guided by Voices and Bardo Pond. Chavez's second full-length album Ride the Fader was released in 1996, and was praised by Entertainment Weekly as "a fine specimen of spare, brainy post-metal hard rock".
Crain was an indie band spawned from the same fertile early 1990s Louisville, Kentucky math rock scene that also gave birth to Slint and Rodan. Combining complex meter and composition with a hard-edged attack, the band was a fixture of the scene but failed to attain the same acclaim as their more well-known peers. Crain released only two full-length albums and a handful of 7" records. The first, the Steve Albini-produced Speed was an early blueprint for those that would follow them in the fledgling post-rock and math rock movements. Several line-up changes occurred during the life of the band. Only founding members Jon Cook and Tim Furnish remained throughout. The band broke up whilst in the studio recording their 3rd proper album in 1996. Crain's Speed was remastered and reissued in 2005 by Temporary Residence Records along with some rare bonus tracks. Plans were made by various parties to release the final line-up's recordings but no actual document has ever surfaced. Many of the members of Crain reunited in 2010 under their original moniker, Cerebellum. One show was in May for the Jason Noble Benefit with Endpoint. The other was to celebrate the re-release of the 1989 Cerebellum EP with new recordings. At both shows they performed King Octane, Ribcage, Proposed Production, and Monkeywrench from the Speed album along with most of the Cerebellum songs.
Slint was an American rock band consisting of Brian McMahan, David Pajo, Britt Walford, Todd Brashear and Ethan Buckler. They formed in Louisville, Kentucky, United States in 1986 and disbanded following the recording of their second album, Spiderland, in 1990. Though they have as yet released no new material, they have reunited to play shows in 2005, 2007 and most recently in 2013.
