The Raymond Brake


No youtube, no myspace so you'll just have to go by the eloguently worded paragraph to ifnd out if you want check these guys out. I'll happily share. Unlike the previously mentioned bands these guys are no longer together. I'm not sure when they formed but they released a 7" split with Rebar (Greensboro, NC) and two full lengths respectively in 94, 95 and 96 and eventually broke up in 98. Really no amount of mindless babling will do as much as me saying that these are the lost Polvo recordings between Cor-Crane Street and Today's Active Lifestyles and these Greensboro assholes just stamped their name on it. When I was 14 I found Today's Active Lifestyles on this forum and I was just blown away. Not to be trite but it really changed my life because I thought NC sucked and wished I lived in the musical wonderlands of Chicago or DC. These guys come the closest that I've ever heard to recreating that feeling and sound while still retaining some sort of identity most notably through Piles of Dirty Winters.

Ashville is a nice little town but there's no doubt you need to do some traveling.

I'm sure there's plenty of good music in NC, but I'd say it's kind of middle of the road as far as states and their music go. So far none of the bands in this thread have really changed my mind about that. It's great to be into your local music scene, but I'm with sweetleaf that the OP needs to spend some time in some other places.

The Asheville scene is pretty quiet Greensboro and Durham really have the most going for them right now. Farewell is absolutely horrible. I like plenty of other stuff from tons of other places. This is just what means most to me because I have this crazy ideal that making friends and going to small shows is what music's all about.

You misspelled "eloquently." That may be the funniest typo ever, especially in the context here.

Just an aside, is there any chance that any of these guys tour outside of NC? Because I am interested in a few (Des Ark looks cool), and the stage is where small bands really shine.

I mix up my g's and q's when I write so it's no wonder. It was a sarcastic statement anyway. Where do you live? I think Des Ark just got back from a southeast tour, Ahleuchatistas played the midwest this summer and FKON frequently goes up and down the eastern seaboard.

That's cool. I'm just pointing out that NC is not the only place you can do that, and there are quite a few places out there with a lot more options.

the greensboro music scene has some of the best unsigned bands i personally have ever heard and even though not neccesarily all the bands are as good as non-nc bands, doesn't mean theres not a lot of bands there...and in all of NC that arent amazing
