An associate of Washington, D.C.’s Dischord roster, the Crownhate Spoil shaped in 1994 and lasted just before end of 1996, however, not before these were in a position to record and discharge an record, 1996’s Before Eagle Grins. Frederick Erskine was the bassist and vocalist, Joseph McRedmond was the guitarist and vocalist, and Vin Novara was the drummer. Both McRedmond and Erskine got previously spent amount of time in the short-lived Hoover, another music group that documented for Dischord. Like a lot of their label mates, the Crownhate Spoil performed an explosive make of post-hardcore indie rock and roll that relied on slashing guitars and screamed vocals. Erskine shifted to June of 44, right before Hoover briefly reunited to get a discharge on Slowdime.
