Jawbreaker - 7 Kiss The Bottle live 3/10/94 at Mad Hatter's

I recently read my poem called "Canto Borracho" at a reading. A section in the poem reads "...my cousin and his band...covered Jawbreaker's "Kiss the Bottle" twenty-six times at a party in one of the old slaughterhouses in Heber..."

After the reading a homeboy came up to me and asked: "Yo, who's Jawbreaker?"

"Gotta check them out, man. They really worked the word and song."

Abraham Rodriguez used one of their lyrics for an epigraph in his Buddha Book a few years ago. Needless to say, this put a smile on my face.
