After the break-up of the criminally underrated Olympia post-hardcore outfit Lync, vocalist and guitarist Sam Jayne split out on his own and took on the moniker Love As Laughter. Eventually Love As Laughter would evolve from solo project to full on band with the additions of drummer Dave Schneider and former Lync bandmate bassist James Bertman. The band released several albums and singles on Olympia’s K Records before jumping over to Sub Pop. Their first release for the label came with their fiery Singles Club 7-inch featuring “Nude ‘Hos” and “Watching Yer Fingers.” Both tracks aptly capture the band’s proclivity for classic rock riffs with new school punk attitude. It’s a great introduction for the records that the band would do next, which we’ll see soon on the Sub Pop catalog count-up.
