Light the Fuse and Run

Light the Fuse and Run drank a lot of beer and sometimes played shows. The band existed from the summer of 2000 until the fall of 2003 and released a full length LP (Exotic Fever), a three song EP (Golden Brown), a split EP with Hot Cross (Level-Plane/EHP), and a split LP with Transistor Transistor (Level-Plane/EHP). Fuse played hundreds of shows across fourty three states and thirteen countries, including an overwealming 99 date tour in the summer of 2003. This tour was the culmination of the band. The band played shows in almost every single American city. The first show was played in a basement in Richmond Virginia for 30 kids. The last show was played in a different basement in Richmond Virginia for 40 kids (many of whom were the same). The show was broken up by the police after three songs. Since then, members went on to form The Setup, Au Au, No Omega, and Wow, Owls!

Three studio tracks destined for a LP on No Idea, and a live concert from The Netherlands were never released.

Contrary to what was written on the Level Plane website, Light the Fuse and Run was never guaranteed anything with No Idea Records, only a couple of short emails were passed back and forth between the band and Var from No Idea concerning a possible split with Holy Mountain while they were in Europe. Obviously this fell apart after the band returned from Europe only to play a few shows and quickly disappear.

    To absolutely correct the arguments stated below (and I might add, a year ago...), Light the Fuse and Run considered themselves a hardcore band. This would have been the way any of the bands that were influential to them such as Fugazi, 1.6 Band, Hoover, and most of what has been degraded out of the mid-atlantic hardcore scene from the late 90's with the term emo would have described themselves. The term emo has long been a lost cause, let Rolling Stone have it.

    You really can't call Sunny Day Real Estate, Mineral, and The Get-Up Kids emo musically, either. But apart of the culture, I guess you might be able to get away with. XP

    I guess if anything would be third wave Emo, it would be stuff like ...Who Calls So Loud.

    The third wave of emo doesn't exist... I mean, you cant call MCR, PATD etc, third emo wave, just because the majority think it's emo doesn't mean they play emo, it's a just a big misunderstanding, thats all. About the ska thing I have no idea, because i'm not into it :)

    Emo makes a lot more sense when you look at it in waves like ska. First wave emo = screamo, second wave = sunny day real estate type rock, third wave = poppy MCR bullshit. Third wave emo is a horrible bastardization, just like third wave ska.

    From what I've heard, Screamo is the only sub genre of emo =S

    Emo = Screamo. Screamo is the real emo. Screamo was just coined by that stupid magazine NME, not real emo fans. This is REAL emo.
