forgetters: as we are, so shall we be. In the spirit of national historical amnesia, the scrappy, enormous Brooklyn
band continues its mission to master its immediate moment
through the occlusion / collapse of events prior and subsequent. Originally touted as a “9/11 denier hoax,” the group
went on to surprise even itself by losing its mind on its
tragic-glorious 2011 European tour.
Surviving members Kevin Mahon (Against Me!) and
Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil) went
to Baltimore, Maryland, in late 2011 / early 2012 to record
this eponymous full-length with J. Robbins. The result is
pure Caesar—a quasi-fascist Republic with power streaming from every administrative angle.
The small nation-state plans to tour following the release of its album, in what it has called “Dubai or Death.”

This album is great for Jawbreaker fans, in fact it's more Jawbreaker than Jets To Brazil, I'll buy anything Blake puts out, and while not on par with his old stuff, still a very nice listen, worth picking up.

I hate to do it, but this is terrible. The Forgetter's 7" that came out before this was great. It had some life/kick to it. This reminds me more of Jets To Brazil than Jawbreaker. So expect that kind of vibe. If you were into Jets....you will probably love this.
I wish Blake would either get the Thorns in Life back together and put out the recording that is rumored to have happened or just bite the bullet....take the money and do the Jawbreaker reunion. The Forgetters are easily.....forgettable.
