Released: August 2000
Perhaps the most significant thing 'One Armed Scissor' did upon its release in 2000 was to reinvigorate legions of music fans utterly despondent with new bands. Just like Primal Scream's 'XTRMNTR' was doing for UK music at the same time, At The Drive-In proved that US rock bands didn't have to be offensively cheesy (Blink-182), inoffensively bland (Nickelback), offensively offensive (Limp Bizkit) or just plain shit (Linkin Park). Afros aside, they also helped pave the way for the likes of The Strokes by showing that a guitar could still be so much more than the tool of choice for baseball cap-wearing wankers the world over.
