Crackerbash – Orion


Crackerbash pop-punk band active in the early 90s, part of a vibrant Portland, Oregon scene that included HazelPond, and The Spinanes. Fronted by singer-guitarist Sean Croghan, who went on to form Jr. High. Known for their extremely intense live shows. Solidly rooted in the sonic aesthetic of the period, Crackerbash also stood out for their enthusiasm, unusual song structures and emotional vocals.

Self-titled debut released on eMpTy label in 1992, follow-up Tin Toy released the next year.
