J. Robbins, Kim Coletta, and Adam Wade formed Jawbox in July of 1989. Not long after, the
band began to tour and record, releasing its first EP, Tools & Chrome, in 1990 as a split between
Desoto and Dischord Records. Following the release of the Jawbox’s debut LP, Grippe, on
Dischord in 1991, the band recruited a second guitarist, Bill Barbot. In 1993, Jawbox left
Dischord to sign with Atlantic Records, where it would release two more albums – For Your
Own Special Sweetheart and Jawbox – before disbanding in 1997.
