Long live the Exploding Hearts

I can't remember how i found out about this band, i think it was listening to some band's radio station on lastfm. Exploding Hearts were from Portland, Oregon and played some of the best Buzzcocks/The Boys powerpop/punk ive ever heard. Shortly after the release of their critically acclaimed debut record 'Guitar Romantic' in 2003 three of the four band members died in a car crash. Terry Six, the guitarist was the only surviving member. The band immediately stopped and the name has not been used since. In 2006 Dirtnap Records released a compilation of all their demos and unreleased songs entitled 'shattered' you should hunt it down.

Here is 'Guitar Romantic' its perfection. Spread the word and dont let this band die.
