Call me a history riddled indieboomer from the golden age of indie-rock, but few indieblipster bands of the now generation won’t ever hold a candle to Unrest, a band I saw probably a few less times than The Boss and The Clash and Radiohead over the years. And I saw them a lot. The DC band started in the mid-80’s under Mark Robinson’s sound and vision. Robinson founded the influential Teenbeat Records and the band had a significant influence on DC bands and national bands alike. Records like Imperial F.F.R.R. and Perfect Teeth (produced by Simon LeBon of Duran Duran) rocked a lot of people’s worlds back then and these records sound as good today as they did when they came out back in the day.
The band are back for a 26th anniversary tour along with members Bridget Cross & Phil Krauth and play Johnny Brenda’s Tuesday July 6th for what could be the last time you can experience their brilliance.
After Unrest broke up Cross and Robinson formed Air Miami.
