J Church were perhaps the most prolific indie band of the '90s, equalled only by Guided By Voices in terms of sheer recorded output. In fact, I own about half a dozen more J Church split singles, some of which may materialize in future Splitting the Difference installments. By and large, J Church, fronted by Lance Hahn, were a punk band with pop inclinations, and their contribution here, "Crazy Lady on Market Street" is about as good a song to familiarize yourself with as any in their oeuvre, but if you've read this far, you probably already know what I'm talking about. "Crazy Lady..." eventually wound up on a J Church singles and rarities compilation album, Meaty, Beaty, Shitty Sounding. More background on this single can be perused here. Hahn died of natural causes in 2007.
