Yaphet Kotto's first 7" was released in 1998 on Analog Kid Records and is not to be confused with the LP of the same name. All 4 songs are exclusive and have never been released on any other record. (The s/t song is different on this 7")
Shoutouts to the dude who hooked me up with his rip of this record.
The next record label discography post covers Repercussion. Repercussion was active around 1993 and 1994 and put out 8 records. The label was run by Adam Nanaa (Sinker, Indian Summer). Every record he released was a 7" of a notable 90's emo band such as Indian Summer, Embassy, and Assfactor 4.
Ebullition has been one of the best labels when it comes to DIY ethics, zines and of course music releases, which span a variety of hardcore styles (from crust to thrascore to screamo to emo and so on).
Below the entire catalog that Ebullition Records has released up to this point. There is one record missing though (Ebullition #40: Born & Razed - Holy Wars LP). If anyone has this record, please get in touch so I can finalize the collection. I left out some discography releases, which were the CD release of a LP and featured further bonus tracks (rest of a band's catalog). For further information about Ebullition's catalog, go to their website.
This is the first installment of a new category on this blog; entire record label catalogs. Do you have any suggestion which record labels I should cover? Please leave me a comment.
Monotonashhfuck was a band from Richmond, VA prior to City of Caterpillar. As far as I could find out, Brandon Evans (City of Caterpillar, Pg.99, Ghastly City Sleep) and Ryan Parrish (City of Caterpillar, Darkest Hour, Verse En Coma etc.) were in Monotonashhfuck. Chris from Pg.99 may have played in this band too, I don't know exactly though.
Hardly any other information about the band can be found on the internet. They released a demo or two? The one I posted may not actually be a demo and may not have been released in 1999. Who knows? What's sure is that musically, Monotonashhfuck are close to City of Caterpillar and that's an awesome thing, isn't it?
Demo (1999) I couldn't be bothered to find out the names of these songs, seeing that at least two songs with proper titles are on Youtube.
The last few posts were American bands, now it's time to post a European band. Bob Tilton came from Nottingham, UK and existed between 1993 and 1999. They were one of the leading bands in the European emo scene and have defined its sound to a large extent. Their sound was something that stood out for itself. Think of Moss Icon, Indian Summer, Still Life and so on.

Here is a pre-Orchid band. Geoff Garlock and Jayson Greene played in All I Ask before they went on to form one of the most notable screamo bands; Orchid. All I Ask put out a 7" and a split 7" with Joshua Fit For Battle. Definitely a band not many people know about. They cannot be compared to Orchid that much. Check out for yourself. If you dig Orchid, this might be interesting to you.
I have been meaning to post Still Life for a long while now because I think that they shaped and defined the 90's emo unlike any other band.
The three-piece band Still Life came from California and existed from 1989 to 2003. They were known as Monster Club until 1991 and changed their name when the original singer Rick Rodney went on to join Strife. Still Life released a lot of material over the years on labels such as Ebullition, Sunflower Tribe (the band's own label), Rhetoric Records and a few more.
Still Life had a very huge influence on the sound of 90's emo. The early material, especially From Angry Heads With Skyward Eyes, is a memorial in the history of emo hardcore. The later material is much more experimental and is not referred to as often, but still good.

Christopher Robin was an emo band from Seattle, WA. I have found no further information on this band other than they played a few house shows, released a s/t 7" on Repercussion and had another song on the Universal Choking Sign compilation. Anyway, good old chaotic emo from the 90's.
In Loving Memory were a screamo/emo violence band from Des Moines, Iowa that existed between 1998 and 2001. The band had influences ranging from Saetia to Jeromes Dream, and were known for their intense live performances. Members were also invovled in The Spirit of Versailles, Rue Morgue, Drop to Zero and so on. If you really want to read something further about the band, click here.

Ten Boy Summer were a shortlived emo band (1993/1994). They did a brief US tour and released a cheap demo tape (15$ for recording and mastering). They were also featured on the A Food Not Bombs Benefit LP. The most famous member is Davey von Bohlen, who would later play in Cap'n Jazz and The Promise Ring.
