The Making Of "White Crosses"

Biography

Before becoming a full-fledged punk band, Against Me! was an acoustic solo project spearheaded by Laura Jane Grace, who began playing shows as a 17-year-old in Gainesville, Florida. Starting in 1997, Grace performed as a solo act wherever anyone would have her, drawing much influence from early acoustic protest music. By 2001, she'd beefed up her sound with the help of a full band -- ... Read more in Amazon's Against Me! Store

5.0 out of 5 stars These Anarchists Can Cook. May 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Minor Threat: The Pub Band" doesn't come close to describing this group, but it's a start.
AM! fuse the personal and the political better than any band since the Clash (maybe better). The album is a diary of a young band stretching out, and they write of their growing success in terms of worrying about forgetting their roots, and most memorably, in the fist-pumping 'We Laugh at Danger': "If this GM van don't make it across the state lines/We might as well lay down and die/Cos if Florida takes us/We're taking everyone down with us." Their humility shines through when in parentheses next to the lyric: "And we rock/because it's us against them...", is written: (the act, not the state). Because boasting of rockingness is NOT punk, remember?
This record is so full of the verve and spirit of rock and roll that it literally gives me shivers. The opening track, a story of an Irish widow and her long-dead husband reminds me why I listen to this stuff in the first place.
This group is currently tied with its spiritual twin/Canadian counterpart The Weakerthans for my vote for 'best band currently making music' (The Stripes rock harder but don't come close to making you feel this alive). Buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mysterious Anarcho Punx from Gainesville... July 11, 2003
By Steven
Format:Audio CD
Against Me! are, without a doubt, the best punk band out right now. The lyrics are filled with emotion, and the music itself is an original blend of folk rock and power chords. If you've never had 11 songs change your outlook on life, I suggest you buy this album to see what it feels like.
The album starts off with with what many consider their best song, "Pints of Guiness Make You Strong". Through his screaming, Tom Gabel shares the tale of his Grandfather's early demise from alcohol abuse and the toll it left on his Grandmother. When he sings, "If I'd known just how things would have ended up, I just would have let myself die", you can feel her pain.
With a little more distortion, "Politics of Starving" could easily pass as a hardcore song. "We Laugh at Danger (and Break all the Rules)" is their anthem of life and music. When the music stops, and the gang vocals are all that remains, you can't help but scream right along. The original acoustic version of "I Still Love you Julie" appeared on their "Crime" EP. Though it's a change of pace, the full band version on this record is equally incredible. "Scream it Until You're Coughing up Blood" (aka "Jamaican Me Crazy") claims the title of Song With The Most Screaming In It. The guitar solo-esque part is almost haunting though.
"Jordan's First Choice", "Those Anarcho Punx are Mysterious...", and "Reinventing Axl Rose" were originally recorded on their self-titled EP. Tom's voice seems to have deepened a bit since that recording, as is made evident by the opening to "Jordan's First Choice". I do have to say that I really preferred the acoustic version of "Those Anarcho Punx are Mysterious".

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it. Love it. Love it. May 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I love Against Me!. I love this CD. I can't say that I like one album over the other. The world of iTunes has made my attention span shorter and I like to listen to all of their albums at the same time.

My fondest memory is that of stumbling onto Impact on the Plan-It-X website. When I'd tell people that Against Me! was my favorite band, they'd look at me and think "Who is this band and is she so excited about it that she has to be an exclamation point after their name?"

I still love them, one of the few who can stand to listen to their new CD. The one thing that's lacking though is that ability to make everyone sing along.

In my hall at school, I managed to find a guy who had heard of Against Me! I had been wearing one of my many shirts when we started talking about the band. He said he wasn't such a big fan, but he liked what he had heard. I immediately let him borrow every CD I owned and a week later, he was almost as big a fan as I was. We'd sit out in the hallway each with our own guitars, and I taught him the chords to songs like We Laugh at Danger, Reinventing Axl Rose, Baby I'm an Anarchist, Cavalier Eternal, Sink Florida Sink... after a while, my whole hall knew the lyrics. We'd sit in the hallway, 5 or 6 of us, many of which had never heard a real AM! song before, and they'd sing their hearts out.

That's the amazing quality of this band. They have the ability to make even the most sensible and logical human beings, even if only 2-3 minutes, want to start a revolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! April 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Against Me! is one of the best punk bands around these days. Judging by all the 5 star reviews, you already know this album is fantastic. Don't buy it form amazon, though. Buy it from NoIdeaRecords.com, they sell the cd for only $6! Great band.

The new Against Me! is more pop friendly than it used to be. But the very old Against Me! isn't that great either. This album is mostly acoustic guitars. Not a lot of rocking.
