The Green Fuse is known for ardent DIY aesthetics — specifically, its handsome homemade record covers and its soon-to-be-impractical cassette tape releases. And such crafty projects are telling of the truly underground nature of the trio, which has yet to — and may never — establish a MySpace page. More than that, though, it's also reflective of the kind of impassioned Midwestern-style post-hardcore that it plays. Hailing from the same hallowed rock institutions as Fugazi, Early Grace and the Red Scare, the Green Fuse is an outfit better discovered by a sterling and bright-eyed fan via limited 7-inch than as a fake-world icon on somebody's Top 8 list, anyway. Get in on the ground floor this Wednesday, July 18, at the Larimer Lounge, when the Green Fuse warms up for Flee the Century.
