Two and a half decades on, Jawbreaker’s 24 Hour Revenge Therapy (1993-94) is the rare album to have lost none of its original loyalty, affection, and reverence. If anything, today, the cult of Jawbreaker—in their own words, “the little band that could but would probably rather not”—is now many times greater than it was when they broke up in 1996. Like the best work of Fugazi, The Clash, and Operation Ivy, the album is now a rite of passage and a beloved classic among partisans of intelligent, committed, literary punk music and poetry.

Ronen Givony’s 24 Hour Revenge Therapy is an extended tribute in the spirit of Nicholson Baker’s U and I: a passionate, highly personal, and occasionally obsessive study of one of the great confessional rock albums of the ’90s. At the same time, it offers a quizzical look back to the toxic authenticity battles of the decade, ponders what happened to the question of “selling out,”and asks whether we today are enriched or impoverished by that debate becoming obsolete.

Ronen Givony is the founder of New York’s Wordless Music series and orchestra (wordlessmusic.org), which the Village Voice named the city’s “Best Moderately Snooty Concert Series.” A native of South Florida, he has worked as a producer for concert venues and music festivals in the U.S. and abroad.
