Kingface

Kingface was another one of those highly underrated bands. They came out of the D.C. scene in the late eighties. Unlike other bands like Soul Side, Rites of Spring, & Gray Matter, they had more of a rock approach rather than melodic. In 1987 they released their 6 song self titled 12"(Self-Released). From the opening harmonica in Crawl Into Tomorrow, to the self-reflective lyrics in Like A King, not one track is a let down. Great music and definitely worth a listen. I believe they did put out one other record and a few live bootlegs, but I haven't tracked them down yet. Dischord released a discography in '95. Here's a nice link to some background info and discography.
