The Promise Ring – Nothing Feels Good

The Promise Ring

I’ve blogged a number of times about my love for the great Mid West bands of the mid 90s, and here’s another example. Davey von Bohlen of Cap’n Jazz formed this band in 1995 along with members of None Left Standing and Ceilishrine, in the process writing what in my opinion at least, is a seminal work of the genre. Nothing Feels Good is pretty much the record that introduced ’emo’ to the mainstream and despite never really shifting any significant number of copies has been a huge influence on the genre, which in my opinion has taken a huge turn for the worse over the past few years. Throw away your preconceived notions of what ’emo’ is today when listening to this record, it’s probably pretty different to what you’re expecting.

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
