Algernon Cadwallader and Cap'n Jazz Sound The Same.

So, Cap'n Jazz was a short-lived, but highly-influential, emo band. The group was formed in Chicago in 1989 by brothers Tim and Mike Kinsella, who were joined by Sam Zurick and Victor Villareal. They were one of the first "emo" bands and, to me, they are still the pinnacle of what "emo" is, was, and will be. Now, there is this new band Algernon Cadwallader that sound JUST LIKE THEM. Still, it's good. Check out the similarity.
