Formed in 1989 in Topeka, Kansas, Vitreous Humor was best known as the flagship band on the Crank! record label out of Santa Monica, California. They released two 7-inch records, one EP, and, after their dissolution, one full-length album of singles, demos, and live tracks during their time with Crank! They shared stages with bands such as Archers of Loaf, Urge Overkill, Everclear, and The Get Up Kids, and their songs have been covered by bands such as The Get Up Kids and Nada Surf. Vitreous Humor is often spoken of as one of the progenitors of the “emo” movement, but their style and sound never fit neatly into any category. Their sound evolved over the seven-year lifespan of the band from melodic, guitar heavy indie-rock/pop, to a more dissonant, angular, and aggressive attack later on.
