Dillinger Four are from Minneapolis, Minnesota. They formed in 1994. C I V I L W A R is their fourth full-length record (preceded by Midwestern Songs of the Americas, Versus God, and Situationist Comedy). In terms of importance, they are to the ‘90s and ’00s what Black Flag was to the ’80s (without the Grateful Dead worship). It’s not only what they are—a great band—it’s what they’ve helped inspire, build, and represent. They’re an earthquake. They’re the Redd Foxx—mixed with the Chalmers Johnson of punk rock. And their album is out today.
