Rare Snail Habitat of Ichetucknee demo (199?)

(no art, unsurprisingly)

Late 90s emo from Gainesville, FL (hence the name taken from the Ichetucknee river/state park).

Intensity controlled in such a way that the shifts from manic chugs to cathartic, beautifully melodic multi-guitar arpeggios are seamless; a mundane intensity pervading an entire culture, realized only by those wild enough to record it.

This has been a favorite for years. I get a kick out of this quote from drummer Dan Haddock: "this was the coolest band i've ever been in but i quit to concentrate more on my drug habit."
