Breadwinner, based out of Richmond Virginia, was comprised of: Pen Rollings (guitar), Bobby Donne (bass), and Chris Farmer (drums), also drummer for German Version. Their music is the definition of math rock, a calculated and electrifying mash-up of metal signatures. Merge Records released two 7-inch singles and one full-length CD, "The Burner" (1994) after the band had broken up.

  • Breadwinner were indeed incredible, I could listen to "Kisses Men on the Mouth on the Mountain", "Prescott [Homecut]", "Mac's Oranges", and "Knighton" for hours upon hours and never get bored. Pen Rollings was a incredible guitarist, I like his guitarwork in Honor Role and Butterglove too.

  • That's cool, thanks. I kinda promote music and solely listen to music on last.fm, so, if it ain't up here I'm not gonna get a chance to listen to it. Plus it only helps to get some tracks up for a free listen on the most popular music site in the world.
