i knew what you meant...i just see way more people dropping CTTS and Rites of Spring into conversations than orchid. usually people who like orchid really really like orchid. like me.
Orchid was pretty big and at forefront of the 'screamo' movement and therefore ripe for namedropping. You'd be surprised though, I've seen scenesters drop a 'I Wrote Haikus' About etc...' and Pg. 99. Did they actually listen? Fuck no, but it's amazing how far people will go to look cool.
That is why I am glad I have two friends who consistently find new bands and share with me. We have some fucking awesome sing alongs in my car. The Kodan Armada ones are my fave.
I've never met anybody in my life who listens to real screamo. I've met a couple of kids who rock Fugazi, Husker Du and stuff, but never any skramz fans. It's unfortunate, but everybody that lives around me thats near my age only listens to southernCRUNKWHATOKAYY rap or generic pop.
