darth_tyrannus_rex A wail of grief for a world which we have ruined with our own hands, and the realisation that we could build it back up again, but not without a fight against our own nature. Favorite track: And You're Wondering How a Top Floor Could Replace Heaven.

karinavr This was my introduction to "emo". I was 11 and earning money by painting walls when I first listened to this. By the time Fucking Hero began, I was crying histerically. They'll gnaw right through left me a mess of tears and snot. I still think this record is the epitome of anguish.

T.K.S. One of the defining albums of my youth. Essential for anyone with ears and emotions. Favorite track: A Little Change Could Go a Long Ways.

Fucking Hero 03:51


First released in 2002, here is the original description of the album:

City of Caterpillar's debut LP is finally here. The 7 tracks spread out over 44 minutes sway with hypnotic fury and a nervous energy and passion lacking in a lot of bands these days. I personally have been waiting for this record since my former band played with them a couple years ago and they totally schooled us. It was one of those shows where you can't even think straight after and you want to stop playing guitar after they play because you'll never get it as right as they have. I eagerly checked my mailbox for the master once it had been recorded and once it arrived it proceeded to own my stereo for a month straight.

City of Caterpillar have been touring like crazy leaving many wondering, "where the fuck did these guys come from?" Sure the members play or have played in a number of well known and seminal bands, but listing them is redundant as City of Caterpillar have come into their own without riding on the coattails of previous projects. It's obvious they're not new to writing and playing as their live shows and recordings are consistently too strong to simply be attributed to an accident or luck. This is the record that will make even the most jaded hipster take notice and start listening to hardocre again (whether we want them to our not)
