Slint, Rodan and Hoover. In the early nineties these three bands became a springboard for many other interesting projects. From the ashes of Hoover raised other bands like The Crownhate Ruin, June of 44, Regulator Watts or the matter in hand, The Sorts. In a scene /Washington DC&Dischord/ dominated by highly inflammable post/hardcore bands like Fugazi or Jawbox, bands like The Sorts or Smart Went Crazy presented a more relaxed way of doing, instrumental games, a tiki/taka bass and drums. Fugazi had their id/from/Washington/imitating/Funkadelic' moments, but The Sorts *and then The Boom and HiM( turned that intention into their true meaning of existence, both in composition as performance wise. They tried to flee from their punk and rock roots and vindicate other genres like jazz, dub or even psychedelic funk *the fanzines would call it post rock because it was shorter and more fashionable then(.
