Jawbox Bio

Jawbox was an alternative rock band from Washington, D.C., U.S.. Its original members were J. Robbins (vocals/guitar), Kim Coletta (bass guitar) and Adam Wade (drums). Bill Barbot (vocals/guitar) and Zach Barocas (drums) later joined the group, with Barocas replacing Wade.

Robbins had played in the final incarnation of Government Issue, which was the longest lived of the original Washington, D.C. punk bands. After Government Issue called it quits, Robbins formed Jawbox with Kim Coletta and Adam Wade. The trio recorded a demo cassette and their first, self-released single (this was also the beginning of their use of the Desoto Records rubric, which went on to become a formal, successful independent record label); inclusion of the song "Bullet Park" on the Maximumrocknroll compilation They Don't Get Paid, They Don't Get Laid, But Boy Do They Work Hard (1989) was their most widespread early exposure.
