The Get Up Kids/Coalesce

The Get Up Kids/Coalesce

Release Date: 1997
Format: 7-inch


A remarkably divergent split seven-inch release from The Get Up Kids and Coalesce, where they pay tribute to one another by covering each other's songs. Coalesce consumes, rebuilds and spits out The Get Up Kids' "Second Place," re-titled "I'm Giving Up On This One," as a maliciously opaque and damaging onslaught that is wholly Coalesce in its execution yet fleetingly retains hints of The Get Up Kids' melodic riffing and drive. Not to be overshadowed, The Get Up Kids take Coalesce's "Harvest of Maturity," now titled "Burned Bridges," and transform it into an almost unrecognisable melodic power pop number that retains some edge and aggression while riding the ardent dynamics The Get Up Kids are renowned for. The Get Up Kids/Coalesce "trading places" seven-inch is a successful musical interpretation of disparate musical styles that retains each group's identity; by no means an easy feat.
